Word searches

Can word searches be creative? Not necessarily, unless you do them the way I do. I found this book, completely untouched, shoved away in the back of a drawer in my desk. 

  
So, obviously circling words in a pre-made puzzle isn’t the most creative thing ever. But me, I like to doodle in the space around the word lists. My tomato doodles aren’t much, but I’m sure I’ll find something a little more inspiring further in. 

Apple of my eye 

  
I keep using markers trying to get bright colours, but it never turns out the way I imagine. I’m thinking I’ll have to resist using markers unless it’s in the case of those delicate images that are thin lines against black backgrounds. 

Flowers

  
Had a notion to drawn a flower tonight. Looks a little like a lotus…but it does leave a lot to be desired. I don’t think the paper in my book takes my washable markers very well, either.  :/

The Season Tree


This is obviously my blog header. I call it the season tree; it’s meant to look like the progression of the seasons. Of course, trees in winter have no leaves, but this is what we call “creative licence”. It’s just a colouring book page…I lack the ability to draw recognizable objects.
