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.
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.
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.
Found a delicate image in my colouring book probably best suited to using markers. It’s like a flowery lace. I regret the use of the dark purple when the background is solid black, though.
Took this shot while waiting for a bus of a (dirty) creek that meanders through my city. It looks nice in some places moreso than others.
Last one for the night. (Probably.) Esten Lake. One of my favourite attempts at photography. It’s about a year and a half old, but I like it.
Some cupcakes I coloured. There are four on the page, but I like these two best.
I came across this page in my colouring book. It’s squiggles kind of hurt my eyes. I felt like it needed to be a ROYGBIV rainbow, alternating the pattern at each red and purple (violet) line. I regret the use of marker here–you can see each marker strike.
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.
