So here we are about 2 weeks since my last post, but let me tell you, I haven't stopped doodling since then; I just haven't had time to post any of them.
My days these past few weeks have been filled with planning a big EXPO for work, taking more Graphic Design courses, and doing face painting at events and parties. There's literally been no time to sleep!
Today, I was finally able to catch my breath this weekend and catch you up on some of the doodles I created over the past couple weeks - so sit back, and enjoy the colorful loveliness that will be forthcoming over the next few days as I get all of these lovelies uploaded.
My first design is an asymmetrical mask with a Valentine's Day theme to it.
For this design, I just focused on colors. There was really no inspiration as for a photo or image, I just wanted to make it bold and colorful. I used a split cake I made featuring metallic fuchsia, purple, and teal (All Global) both as a one stroke, as well as for a pouncer to create the circle shapes.
Then I got to play around with my new Loew-Cornell Dagger brush that I purchased at Silly Farm a few weeks ago. I was excited to try it out for the leaves as it really lends itself nicely to create contrasting lines weights. I LOVE this brush and hope to add some more in various shapes and sizes to my arsenal. Perhaps one day I'll create a doodle using only this brush (it makes really neat teardrops too!) It's so versatile and I want to use it all the time now! (I used the greens from the Fleur split cake by Paradise for the leaves - loading the brush by the edge similar to how you load a normal flat brush.)
The other paint I used is the Chameleon Plum Fairy for the larger lacy hearts (that I purchased from Paintertainment), and Wolfe black and white for the details. The "Plum Fairy" color from Chameleon is my first item from their line. I had never used their paints before; this color just popped at me when I saw it. It is great paint to work with; similar to Wolfe, and very easy to control. (I think Chameleon is going to become a new favorite of mine.)
After laying down the base color with a 3/4" paradise Flat Brush, I added the flowers and hearts using a Loew-Cornell Filbert brush, the leaves were created with the Chisel Brush, the thick to thin inky black lines and dots with a Loew-Cornell #1 brush, and lastly the white details and dots were also created with a Loew-Cornell #1 brush.
So there you have it... Another daily doodle for your to enjoy. More doodles will be coming in the upcoming days ~ so check back here or follow me on my Facebook page.
Keep creating, keep smiling, keep dreaming~
