This post is long overdue – though I have been drawing doodles every day, I have not been keeping up with the posts! So, in order to catch up, I will post these doodles in “batches”. That’s not so bad, this way you get a lot of ideas in one post!
First of all, why have I not posted for a while? Well, I had a few fabulous projects to work on (including a brand new coloring book!), and I needed every minute to meet the deadlines! I am super excited to get back to you with my art journaling doodles. I hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to journal.
This funky fall leaf is part of my black and white fall leaf series. These were inspired by a walk in the neighborhood last fall. I had to get these drawn before the leaves I collected disintegrated!
This bunch of aspen leaves (also part of the fall leaf collection) is an illustration from my Aspen tree.
I just loved the little berries hanging out between the beautiful leaves!
This little branch is a reminder of how we can play with shapes and fills to create a whimsical image that reminds us of something we love.
Oops! I deviated from my leaves! I thought these carved gourds and pumpkin would be a fun little decoration on a corner of a fall journal page.
More fun leaves with berries!
This abstract branch would make a great divider or border on an art journal page!
Lastly, here is a teaser for things to come. I started thinking of some fun patterns I could use not only for journaling, but also for patterns in coloring books for adults. In the next posts, you will see some studies of ethnic inspired patterns.
I hope you found this post interesting and hopefully inspiring.
