..Doodles in a Matchbox..

matchbox doodles 4

..remember i told you about setting myself another doodle challenge..

I took a matchbox,covered it with paper,inked the edges and added a little draw pull

matchbox doodles 6

..i cut 31 x 1″ x 1″ squares of card ( a months supply of mini doodle cards)

i then set about doodling with pencil any design that popped into my head..

again i find doodles are such a fun way to get an Art “Fix”..

i use my water colour pencils and brush pens to add colour..

I thought it would be hard to think of ideas to draw on an inch of card…but i kept it simple

and am looking forward to finishing the last few cards
