SSS Monday Challenge - Let's Doodle

Well, I managed to get my fingers inky again this week for the SSS Monday Challenge - Let's Doodle.

I loved the idea of the doodling, but all I could think about was these scribble flowers from two different companies. They look like doodling to me. My doodle contribution was scribbling around painted dots and flower centres, and paint doodling as I made up the four pieces of background after starting with plain Bazzill in various greens.

I love seeing the art in a frame. I have many frames with the glass taken out and replaced with matt board (offcuts purchased from my local framer for $8 / large bag). I place two or three pieces of sticky back velcro on the frame and the piece of art. I can change the art on the wall whenever a new piece is added to the collection.
For this challenge I wanted a piece with irregular edges, so I gessoed a piece of matt board, added a hint of colour, then started layering. I love the Tim Holtz film strip die and the french wine label sent to me several years ago.
