Inspiration everywhere!

So yesterday in Big W as I was looking through the book section (wanting to buy one for my little boy) I came across this colouring book which I immediately drew inspiration from. 

So for $5.00 I bought it and with my inktense pencils have been colouring in this book full of flower doodles (I feel like a little girl again). Not only have I been colouring in but I got the inspiration to do my own flower doodle and of course colour it in with my inktense pencils.

Here is a photo of my flower: 

I drew it first in pencil. I liked knowing that if I did a mistake that I could erase it. I then used my micron pens (no.3) and went over it. 

Here is the coloured in photo:

I just love the vibrant colours...and working with my inktense pencils was so easy. It took an hour to colour in the whole flower. I used Tim Holtz distress ink pads with a blending tool to create the background. 

Pinterest is also a great source of inspiration. I have started a new board called Zentangles/Doodling of which I am adding more and more pin to as I just love this technique/style. I wonder how I can add this to more of my work...

Happy Crafting!
