Bookmarks

I have some empty snack boxes lying around and thought I should recycle them by making something useful out of them. So, I decided to make some bookmarks.

First I cut out the shape I want, and then started drawing on them. After an hour or so, I completed two handmade bookmarks. After completing the artwork, I scanned the bookmarks and did some touch up in Photoshop. 

I really like the slight brown and rough texture of the card box.

A good craft project to do on your own or with your loved ones :)

Evening Doodles

Did some doodles with my pen. Sometimes I just let my mind wander on the paper and enjoy the spontaneity. It is kind of relaxing.....

Doodles are good for exploring ideas and boosting creativity.  It is also good for days when one is experiencing artist's block. And you can do this while waiting in a queue, in a boring meeting or when you are talking on a phone.
