Whats in my Studio?

Linking up today with Studio JRU and Sneak Peek Friday.

Here is a little painting I did the weekend we had flooding,
it had rained for three days straight.
I got out a sketch book and thought I would just doodle.
If you were to head over to Alisa Burke's blog
you will see some awfully adorable
and inspiring doodling going on.
She is actually offering a doodling class.
I tried to use what she was doing as a springboard
I started with this.....


       it was a little tedious so I moved on and started this

           I really liked these color combinations

I loved these purple cone flowers
I have coasters that I keep wanting to copy a bit
so I tried my hand at them......

some more doodling.....

                                                           and  you saw this......
I really appreciated the doodling because it loosened me up some
just gave me the courage to try something real
something that was "me"
my style......

One last thing Ive been creating.....
a baby blanket.
There are two young ladies from my church that are expecting.
Ive picked neutral colors since the sex is an unknown.
This pattern was created by the lady we roomed with in Ecuador.
Im lovin' it.

For all of you that have shared sweet comments,
prayers and concern.
Our sweet little G is doing much better.
I am not sure how I am going to blog and create
our new normal doesnt leave me with much mommy time
I am trying to figure it all out still.
I am remaining ever so thankful that we found the right meds
and that the horrible side effects are no more
leaving me with my darling little one
and no seizures!
Have a blessed creative weekend!


  1. SO glad there are no seizures!!!!

  5. that's the fun thing about doodles like your beautiful ones and zentangles is how they emerge in an almost organic form - just like plants and flowers! Happy PPF

  13. such beautiful doodles! I like the second one especially - the combination of chunky color and delicate swirls is really cool.

    happy (belated) PPF!

  14. I love your doodling! I don't do enough of it myself, but yesterday I sat and painted with my girls (I mean, I paint with them often, just me working on my stuff while they work on theirs). But yesterday I painted just for them--doodling snails of all things! It was so relaxing and fun. Don't know why I don't do it more often!

  15. I love the doodling, the colors are so perfect and beautiful. Blessings, Janet PPF
