|Creative Doodling and Beyond |
by Stephanie Corfee
The two doodles that follow are done blindly. You set your pen (or pencil) on the paper, close your eyes and draw a looping, freeform, curvy line without lifting the pen from the paper. After opening your eyes, you fill in the design (string) with tangle patterns and create an interesting abstract work of art!

I ran into the beaded lines delineating the margins of the page with this string. Oops! (But, my eyes were closed!)
Sorry about the photography - I was having trouble getting a good photo without shadows. Not sure why one came out with a sepia cast and the other a bluish cast to it. They are on the same workbook page! I really need a better camera! (hint, hint!!)
This was a fun process, as I had no idea how the string would turn out. It was relaxing, different, and a creative way to do a doodle, especially if you are stuck with starting a string for your Zentangle or doodle.
