Stitched Doodling!

Tania Willis (from 2Ps) played around with the Doodling 101 exercises I posted a few weeks ago and took her doodling to a whole new level. Her idea to stitch her doodles resulted from what I call a “flopportunity”! She says, “I wasn’t happy with it, soooooooo I thought I’d “fix” it by paper piercing over the doodles for a little artsy flair. Then, I got the bright idea to handstitch over the paper piercing. What the heck was i thinking???? Who knows, but four hours later i am THRILLED with the end result.”

And I am thrilled for her…I LOVE that she did not give up when she was unhappy with her initial design. This is a great example of why I find doodling a great artistic exercise…it allows your mind to free up from the “have-to’s” and allows it just go with the flow and have fun. Great job Tania! Thanks for letting me post your wonderful artwork…
