Guest designing at ARTastic

I was thrilled when Jane invited me to be a guest designer at ARTastic in November.

I fell in love with the inspiration piece Tra-la-la by Antje Collis as soon as I saw it!

The additional criteria is doodling - something I **love** to do. 

This is my creation:

My tip for reluctant doodlers:  Use a patterned paper base as a kind of template, and just embellish it with a pen or paintbrush.  I chose a paper from a very old Scenic Route collection.  The original pattern was a simple array of different sized circles:

Every little bit of black that you can see on my layout is my own pen work.  You don't need to be an artist, and it doesn't need to be perfect!  I had lots of fun with lines and dots and other simple doodles:

I also fussy cut some leftover circles from the same paper, and doodled each one to make my title:

Please visit ARTastic to read more about the challenge and see the wonderful design team inspiration pieces!
