KEEPING A JOURNAL OF IDEAS

Hi Everyone! 

Some days I like to doodle and stamp random designs on my journal pages.  I dabble with watercolors in different color combinations and often the results sparks more creative activities, like the one below I used to make a birthday card.  


 I used book text to create a twisted stem and a leaf on the flower below.

 Another flower made with book text for the center of a hand drawn flower. 
 Gluing punched circles onto the page with a few squares and then some doodling.
 See how the design doodles above morphed into another design which in turn was used on a greeting card. 

 I jot down ideas to the side of the designs for future consideration. 

How do you process your ideas for different projects? Do you keep a journal or sketchbook to record them?  

Busy Bee-ing Creative!

I adore all of your doodles of flowers. I keep a book of all kinds of inspiration for designs...
rug hooking, punch needle, embroidery. I try to always keep a pencil and paper with me, even at bedside...so when an idea pops into my head, I won't forget it.

Nice ideas, I don't keep records at all but probably should, these are great, love the twisted type stem and the stitched effects.....xox

Fab doodling Suzy, I'm loving the vibrant colours too. Lol I have a few different journals on the go, all different sizes and no real theme to any of them. I chop and change depending on how large a spread I fancy playing with. I really should keep an ideas book, so many float around and in and out of my head tee hee.
