Simple prompt Sunday: Scribble it, just a little bit

For those of you who have joined us last week bravo and thanks for posting!

I stated these prompts would be simple for a creative quick fix.  Sometimes simple is hard -- does that make sense?  I heard some apologies out there. It's O.K. -- we are just having fun, right?

But today's prompt IS simple.

If you read the title you are probably now humming that obnoxious silly song that it's a near rip off from.  Let's scribble it.  Just a little bit.

Simple prompt:  Scribble a background for a tag.  Attach ONE Vera Lane Studio image of your choice and snap a pic.  Post it on our group page and mention what you liked or didn't like about the challenge.

I love to scribble. Pencil is my favorite media to scribble in but you can experiment.  I like to think of random thoughts or ideas and just let my hand move swiftly --- if words make no sense it doesn't matter, it's not meant to be read. Scribbles create a great visual texture and is a nice complement to a graphic image.

You can take it up a notch, scribble over Gesso and add a little colored media.  Or Gesso over your scribble to expose a tad of texture underneath.  Splash it with watercolor, color with Inktense and drip water on it, smear some Gelatos with baby wipes.  Play!  Invent! 

The image in my sample is from Buds and Birds.  It's a seven image digi stamp set with a couple of whimsical birds, a flower (as shown), a sun image (which can also be used as a flower) and a couple of sentiments.  As with all my sets images can be used together or alone.  Vera versatility!

 You never know when you need to pop a colorful and arty tag to a gift bag, bottle or wine, or cellophane bag of home baked goods.  So scribble, and make someone happy.
