On a recent visit to Daisy and Co we went out for a walk and we always try to find a swing park at some point as Daisy adores swings and slides. I shared a joyful photo of her in a recent post coming down the slide and here are some more
Daisy also has sweet new white daisy shoes (very similar to her first blue ones). Her Mummy and Daddy noticed that she has the exact colours in the cardi below which I knitted her.
Here is Daisy amongst the daisies
Joanne Fink. She adds so many creative doodles to her work. I have been admiring her work for a while and I decided it was time to jump in feet first.
Now it was a brave idea of mine as I knew that if it went badly I could end up spoiling my lovely background. I also don't have the correct pens, I just used a thin black needle pen and a white cheap gel pen. But goodness me it was such fun......I spent ages doodling around my pages in black and white ink.
I had SUCH fun doodling....I think this could become a new obsession. I have lots to learn but for a first attempt I was pleased. You can see I even had a go at hand doodling a flower on the left hand page
The other advantage with doodling is that I can add to my designs in the evening when we sit down.....all I need is a pen or two. I am checking out some pens. I think that Sakura look the best but if anyone else has used doodling on their artwork I would love to hear your thoughts. The only trouble now is that my head is buzzing with ideas....creativity is so infectious isn't it...and to think this started with a photo of Daisy amongst the daisies in her new shoes.
I would like to enter my journal pages into the following challenges;

Enjoy your Thursday, the sun is up here and remember there are always flowers for everyone who wants to see them......just look around.... or in my case...they are at Daisy's feet.
Bye for now,
