a heart art kind of day


my pal allison came over today for art time......she painted frantically....i sat and oh so calmly doodled away my day....i finished these three heart art collaged doodles......i really have become a doodle kind of girl.....not a high art form....but an oh so soothing and happy and fun and easy art form......i have bunches of little favorite doodle bits.....(doodle bits sounds like a sugary cereal!).......like a little guy out of a yearbook that i made an angel.......and those odd little people i've made.....and the kissing king of klubs......and those checker boards are very soothing to make

i DO so love the doodle-ness...but i'm also fond of the odds and end bits of ephemera.......the oh so loved bingo cards....monopoly cards.....dictionary pages....maps....a bit of a novel (not a good one!) ..... i have one more grande sized heart art doodliscious collage to finish......and then i need to find my next thing.....will it be more doodle? not sure...... i collected LOADS of bingo cards last night at a bingo bash.....i can do some sort of bingo loveliness......hmmmmm...i'm now officially thinking about my next big thing.......

oh....i do have some small thngs still going on......finish arting up my clogs......do some more doodle cards for the doodle swap at chrysti's blog...i keep giving the ones i've done away! i need to get six great ones off for the trade before i run out of the doodle steam......

little known fact: i have a dog named dixie.....and i call her dixie doodle.....even though she never doodles on the floor anymore!!

happy artsiness of my day: i won, i won! i commented on jane's blog and she does a drawing of groovy commenters....and i won, i won.......i'm pretty sure she just digs me, is all.......i get a prize! .......read her post.....and MY comment to it....apparently not everyone knows what e. stands for.......i wasn't even being mysterious......isn't that funny? what's your favorite e name? for an artist? hmmmmm....something to ponder.......

the quilt effect comes from collaging different ephemera....and then each separate bit is glazed a different color...and THEN finally doodled......

i think it is funny that you are anonymous here, but i know who you are!
