Masterboard and Doodle Zine

This is an example of what is now being called a "Masterboard" ... about 10 years ago it was called "Serendipity".  You make a Masterboard (or Serendipity) by gluing your paper scraps and collage bits to a larger foundation (usually card stock), adding some paint, stamping, doodles, texture, stencil work, and whatever else you feel compelled to use.  Then you cut it up to make backgrounds for your other art (postcards, book covers, ATCs, inchies, etc...)

I made this one for a July masterboard postcard swap at Swap-Bot

This weekend, I also finished up my latest mini-zine: Doodle Zine I, so it has been an artful weekend.

Happy Sunshine Doodle

Happy Summertime!  It's been a scorcher in Atlanta ... with more of the same planned for the coming week. 

I am just putting the finishing touches on a "Doodle Zine" for a swap over at swap-bot.   I try to make at least one zine each year.  I believe this is my 11th one. 

I always print extras for additional trades ... so if you have a zine (or just some doodles) - give me a holler & we can trade.

Doodle Mandala

Started out as a mandala ... but I think it looks more like a snowflake. Doodled with a Sharpie marker and a Super Fine PITT Indian ink pen.
