What to do with these doodles.


I am now up to the 42nd word of The Creative Prompt Project, in some cases, I did more than one so I now have 50 doodles in these sketch books.
What the heck will I do with them all? I believe some will be my inspiration for future art quilts, I have no doubt about that, but what about the others?

At times, when I am running fabric through my printer I find that I often have some unused space. I really dislike wasting anything.......especially fabric that has been treated for printing, so recently, I simply filled that space with doodles. I then pressed them to paper backed fusible web and cut them out. In the case of the rooster I placed it on a similar background, layered tulle over top prior to adding the stitching to create this postcard that has been sent to a woman who collects roosters.


I have a different plan for prompt word #42 Knot. here is my knot in the sketch book and here it is after being transferred to fabric...........what will it become? well you will just have to check back later to find out.

I sit here looking at that rooster postcard and just say to myself..."what an artist!" It is wonderful...absolutely wonderful. Wish I could draw so well.

They would translate into machine embroidery very easily :o) Would love to digitise them!

I just love the way your mind works, Jill -- truly the mind of an artist. Your work always makes me smile in awe.

Could it become a very nice Christmas card?

As always, your doodles just dazzle! Your rooster postcard is beautiful - I love all the stitching you do on your postcards.

No idea what the knot will become, but I know it will be gorgeous.

I totally love your doodles - they have so much style and character!! You should turn them into rubber stamps! Thanks for adding me and C&T to your blogroll!

You really don't have to *do* anything with them other than keep them for inspiration, as I find some of my old sketches, even ones I've used, prompt new ideas later.
But you forged ahead and made the post card, so there is use one!
I see a book in the making.... :)

XXOO!!
