Brown Baggin' It

After seeing THIS post on Pam Garrison's blog, I decided to use some of her doodles to practice my ink sketching. Pam Garrison is an incredible artist and I LOVE her art journaling. I had this bag sitting on my desk and decided it would be the perfect thing to practice on. No expensive paper to ruin equals no pressure if it turns into a disaster. Just wad it up and toss it.
Here's my Pam Garrison inspired doodles on the back of the bag. I've been painting it a little here and there when I'm not working on another project but want to improve my painting skills.

I really like how it turned out. It's been a fun, "no pressure" little practice piece. You will just have to be surprised what I turn it in to. Actually, so will I. I'm not sure exactly what to do with it yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I'm always open to suggestions.


  1. Looks good. You better save the Roberts name on the bag since it will soon be a collectors item.

  2. Oh thanks for the comment, that is so interesting that we both did hands. Love your doodling. I have been art journaling for a couple years now and don't know of any groups here. As you know most people around here scrapbook. I am so sad that Roberts is closing. I'd love to meet you and share ideas or whatever. Perhaps the cafe at Barnes & Noble or Hastings. My email address is in my profile. Send me a note and we can set a date. You have a wonderful blog....
