#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 52 | Hello July | The 100 Day Project 2017

After many days of packing/unpacking, we are slowly crawling back to a normal routine. I finally found my full set of micron and tombow pens. Phew! Also, timing couldn't be perfect to start doodling again and re-connect with my beloved bullet journal. Hope you are all having a fun long weekend.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 50 | Halfway There.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 50 | Halfway There. | The 100 Day Project

50 DAYS! That is a long time people. When it comes to pursuing interests/hobbies, consistency and persistence are not something people talk about in Siriland. But, what started as a way to get a quick 15-minute break from a mundane day, now 50 days later, the day feels empty without it. TH still finds it amusing that I start to doodle even if I have just 5 mins to leave the house, to catch the train for work. Because doodling is how I learnt to shut down the constant chitter-chatter of my hyper-active brain, to relax and let my imagination fly. I have so much to learn and I am sure will do in due course of time, one stroke at a time.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 47 | Zentangle Tile

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 47 | Zentangle Tile | The 100 Day Project 2017

Aren't Fridays supposed to be fun and kinda relaxed? After an excruciatingly exhausting day at work yesterday, I desperately needed some me-time to wind down and to calm my nerves a bit. What better way than to quickly look up a few tangle patterns and finish a Zentangle tile? The beauty of the whole process is there is no expected outcome other than a strange creative aimlessness of putting the pen to paper and staying open to whatever emerges. Late night tangling (especially when you don't have to work the next day) seems like a keeper idea for a good night's sleep!

Tangle patterns primarily used are: Agni, Tira and Knightsbridge. Sending this as an entry to It's String A Thing # 198 by Adele.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 41 | How to Draw a Rose


* Because it has been almost two weeks since I stopped #100DaysOfDoodles
* Because I am terribly missing spending a few minutes of daily doodling.
* Because I don't have to be too rigid about daily postings and share whenever I can
* Because enjoying the process is more important than reaching an end goal
* Because today I had this sudden urge to learn how to draw a proper Rose.

Some days are tough, filled with negative thoughts and the only way I protect self is to NOT acknowledge their existence because I know: (1) the more I feed them, the bigger & stronger they become. (2) these thoughts are just momentary like passing clouds (3) tomorrow will be better than today (4) that ignorance is the best form of revenge. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ Hope you all have a great week ahead. 🌹

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 27 | What is your favorite word starting with Letter C?

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 27 | What is your favorite word starting with Letter C? | The 100 Day Project

It might sound cliched but my favorite word starting with C is 'Creativity'. True story - Until a few years ago, I discreetly maintained two lives - one who write code for living (with my real first name) and another of a food blogger who goes by a short & sweet name - Siri. The worlds never collided and never knew of each other's existence. Then one day my co-worker accidentally 'discovered' my food blog and shared with the entire office. 🀦🏽‍ Oddly, I felt embarrassed as if someone found out my secret life. The outpouring love that followed and many fun food-related conversions during our serious code review meetings made me realize how wrong I was, that it was always my creativity at play whether I am tackling a software coding issue or learning a new recipe or imitating a doodle. 😍That is when I found a new meaning to "being creative" and never looked back since then.

To be honest, I started this Zentangle page many many weeks ago - roughly divided it into sections with a pencil and started tangling one at a time.

There are 16 zentangle patterns on this page and for those enthusiasts who want to know, here are the pattern names: cruffle, mmm foresty, kitty, organic, w2, nipa, swarm, quandry, crescent moon, poke leaf, arukas, winflo, ponio, ur-chen, ropuz and yuma.

Last week, when I was in library to pick some Tintin comics, it was by chance I saw this brilliant book by Ed Emberley on thumbprint art. The simplicity of the concept of doodling over a fingerprint fascinated me. I immediately ordered a few stamp pads from amazon and got to work. As you can see, the possibilities are just limitless. From a simple flower to a huge dragon, anything can be converted into fingerprint artwork. Do check out Ed Emberley's books if you would like to explore more. These are especially perfect for kids.

What an incredible this week turned out to be. It started with wishing my beautiful SIL a very Happy Birthday and now, here I am with a doodle for my little sister.️ She is far away in an another continent and today I am missing her very very much I can't be with her and for now, all I can do is Facetime and relive our childhood memories. Love you Mins. You are my best friend, defender, listener, conspirator, counsellor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too.
