Diana has unleashed a beast this month with the "doodling" theme.
I love it as much as everyone else does!
We all love it as it fits so many of the marks that we make, right?
It's innate, it's something that all of us do -
I doodled a portion of my lunch salad.
And I doodled a wonky little flower in my yard this fall.
I use this screen in many different applications but so far my favorite is to layer it in a mixed media background.
Try using your sketches in different ways - as an element in a collage, background layer, central image in a piece of artwork or as a thread sketch (like Susan did in her earlier post).
I also made separate thermofax screens out of these simple doodles.
My plan is to screen these, in a collage type manner, onto a ready made tee shirt or a biking skirt.
Here is how a couple of the screens turned out - I used a new paint (new to me anyway). Pantone Images Artist Acrylics. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby with coupons but Dick Blick has very competitive prices.
(I don't receive a kick back if you purchase from the link)
I love the thick consistency of the paints and will probably purchase some more colors along and along. (My husband isn't reading this, is he?)

If I can manage that, I'll be sure to post photos of it - maybe on the Flickr site.
