My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Why do it today...

When I can do it tomorrow.... is the mood I've been finding myself in.  I start something and then don't finish it.  Have done a gazillion backgrounds in my journal it seems but then sit and stare at them for ages waiting for inspiration to strike...or not!!  So the answer...... forget them and doodle....just because it looks pretty and doesn't need anything else.  Food for the soul... lots of grown up colouring in lol.

So here are the results.... loving florals...

and crazy shapes....

and a hiding pig...can you see him above.

Loving colour and letting it flow...

 then I can just stop and enjoy cos they make me happy as they are and I don't need the pages to do anything else but look pretty and maybe inspire me to do something else when I'm feeling stuck.

Revamped stool

Sometimes I find inspiration strikes from an unlikely source and when I doodled this page i had no idea where it would lead...

a while ago my pal Chriss gave me this stool for my DG's bedroom and the intention was to just paint it plain blue to fit in with the rooms decor....

but when I was looking through my doodle journal I had a lightbulb moment and decided to use part of the design from my doodle page to create a unique design on his stool for him.

I changed the colours to more masculine ones...pinks wouldn't have cut it I don't think lol

It took a while to do all the painting but I consider it a job well done and a funky bit of furniture beats a plain old stool any day in my book.

Thanks for looking.
See you soon
Hugs Chris xx
