Harry gets tagged and doodled!

I’ve been doing a whole lot of doodling lately… and Harry got well and truly doodled round and punchinella’d too (mini waste…), so here’s a combined entry for Tag, You’re It (Faux postage) and Layers of Colour (yellow):

Harry is one of the characters on the Home Impressions Victorian Plate I’ve fallen in love with!

And while I’m in the flow, Lisa Gifford has challenged us to use Geometrics for SOYB this week. She linked to a fab Youtube video of a lady doing an abstract painting of circles and I got lost watching other art vids for a good half hour, till DH reminded me that it really had been a while since we’d eaten! Talk about ‘Girl, Interrupted’!!

Anyhow, I was playting with my brayer this evening (as you do!) and made a cool earthy background rolling Frayed Burlap distress ink on glossy paper, added a little Fired brick and then patted the Black soot, direct to the paper. A pattern of squares emerged and I highlighted them all with white gel pen! Look!

Pretty cool, even if it started out as a background piece, isn’t it? 🙂

  6. Stunning work Rosie!!! Cor, Harry is fab, but your doodling is fabber!!!! This is very inspiring indeed!! Your tag is divine, and your geometrics piece is just amazing! You know you see something out there occasionally and think “I wish I’d made that!”? Well, this is one of those pieces! I just love it to bits, and it would look fabulous blown up on a canvas and placed on my bedroom wall!!! Oops, got so distracted there I almost forgot to Thank You for playing along with our theme once more!

    How fabulous, fantastic effect, kind of funky meets Victorian! Really original!

  12. This is so fun … I usually work to make those square shapes from the ink pads blend and disappear … I love how you highlighted them … very cool.

  13. this is the kind of art i’m looking to do on a big canvas for above my fireplace, my lounge is sage green with dark brown furniture, so can picture this with green instead of red.

  14. Oh gosh, why can’t I do what you do??!! I rely so heavily on patterned papers to provide my backgrounds yet you can make something so unique and wonderful!! And Harry is fab!! Love your doodling, another of the many things I keep meaning to have a go at! Thanks SO much for taking part again, always look forward to coming here 😀

  15. This is wonderful, Rosie! Love all the doodling you’ve done … it’s one of the things that I have yet to master. Mine always looks a mess!
