Seeing Yellow

Dear friends,
I was blog hopping last night (while lounging on my bed). So tired, I dozed off ... and woke up two hours later. On my laptop screen I saw Alisa Burke's yellow flats, staring at me. I was reading her Fashion Friday post before dozing off. THAT yellow flats really made me want to doodle a page or two. Like, immediately. It was 2.00 am ... and sleep can wait, I say.

Inspiration : Alisa Burke's statement flats.
What I created: Doodled pages.

Brushed red & green acrylic paint over stencils. Dabbed left over paint (on stencils) on opposite pages. Let dry. Glued on some printed tissue papers over stenciled images. Colored entire pages with yellow soft pastel. Spritzed with water while smudging soft pastel with wet finger. Let dry. 



Started doodling with a black sharpie, liquid correction pen and black india ink. Dabbed leftover black india ink over another stencil. Finished off with sticking green washi tapes & DYMO labels 'Lets Get Doodled'. All of these done in 1-hours time.



I like to do more of this (not the dozing off at the computer late at night), but journaling about everyday small things that inspire me to create :). Spot anything that strikes your fancy and journal about it :). How about giving this a try?.

I'm linking up this post to Julie's Balzer Designs : Art Journal Every Day.

Have fun,
Shahrul.
