Colourful Zendoodle Lady

Hello everyone, I hope you had a super weekend.   It's a bit dreary and cold here, but we are doing well.

I found time during the holidays to play in my Art Journal and created this Zendoodle lady.   Her eyes are a bit intense, but it's just a doodle drawing. 



It was fun to create this page as I enjoy doodling.   I sprayed a little Dylusions around her and used Distress Ink with a stencil.   I coloured the tangle & doodle patterns with Inktense pencils and the lady with Neocolour II crayons.  The words are from Chocolate Baroque's Artistic Expressions set which are excellent to use in journals.

Below is the full page:



Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
Shirley

Pat said...

Oh Shirley, what a wonderful creation. I love the way the layers of her hair are different tangles, and I especially like the one representing her fringe which is repeated several times, and the basket weave one also. The colours are lovely with the extra stencilling, and her face is so cute, and the eyes with those dotty lashes are just perfect for this type of art. x

Great piece, love the colours and the doodles.

Great fun to see those stencilled dots being echoed by the "Tipple" tangle. I particularly like your use of both Flux & Fescu for her hair parting with that gentle morphing into Pokeleaf.

MaryH said...

Geminy, even your doodling is beautiful! Loved the face, so artistic. I'm taking a Hero Arts stencil class, hope I can get some improvement with the stenciling and Dylusions. Got the supplies for 'Tagling too, but not tried yet. TFS & stay warm. It's cold in our area too, but not so much as yours I expect.
