Doodle challenge to the design team
Okay! So I was given the honor of presenting the first "challenge" of the New Year. Indeed. It was a challenge finding a challenge!
Until I came across a mosiac Ms. Nichole had on her site of her fav scrapbook pages. Within it, I was drawn to "You Rock" by Dutch artist Corinne Delis (I believe is her name).
The link below will show you the challenge page:

And now, for the challenge:
The challenge: Simply to try our hand at doodling in a similarly convincing sketch. With no restrictions on color or theme.
So you think doodling is easy? Think again. There was nothing easy or carefree about this piece for me. I messed up so badly at one point, I ripped the paper from the page, then had to figure out how to fit THAT in. Which resulted in the following "black hole" as you'll see.
Below: A quote from Shayna after receiving flowers on Valentine's Day from Grandma "You rock the Universe!" I believe you can click on it to see the details. I agonized over this and will be glad to tuck it away and not look at it again for a while. I gave more thought to this piece than any term paper I've ever completed back in college. I can't wait to see what the rest have done.
