Tell Your Story

Tell your story...whatever it may be.
It doesn't have to be travel to
exotic places, or perfect scenery.
Your art journal can have words
 on the page, doodles,
ordinary things, people and
 places in your life.
It can be anything...

I went to a praise band concert at
the Fulton County Fair in Ohio, to
hear my daughter play the djembe'
drum.  I sketched this baby while
we were waiting for the concert to
start.  The drum sketches were done
from some photos I took with my phone.
The baby was sketched with pen, then
watercolor pencil was added later.
Unfortunately I didn't get to sketch 
any animals that day, but enjoyed the
concert, even though it was 'competing'
with the roar of the tractor pull!

Linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth
for T Tuesday. Stop by and share
a beverage with us...


  1. Wonderful word-art page and love the sketches made at the concert! Have a good week and a happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Sweet sketches! Too bad they had to compete with the tractor pull, but it sounds like you all had a good time. Happy T-Day! :)

  3. beautifully illustrated page and words and I also love the concert inspired sketches-esp. that darling little girl. Happy T day!

  5. I love the concept of the life journal and the sketches are top notch as always.
    Happy T-day

  10. You tell your stories so brilliantly Dianne and inspire so many people with your art and creativity!
    Happy T Day dear Dianne oxo

  11. You always tell a great story, whether it's with collage, paint, or stamps. My friend Joseph is a drummer. Although he owns at least one djembe', his main instrument is the steel drum and he owns every size Ellie Mannette makes, including the Quaduet, double seconds, tenor, guitar, cello, and bass. Ask your daughter, and she will probably tell you he is the inventor of the steel drum as we know it. Yes, I learned a LOT when Joseph lived in Wichita in my basement.

    Love your sketches, because the djembe' brought back such fond memories for me. And of course, I adore your lovely, very delicate tea cup, too. Thanks for sharing stories, memories, and a lovely tea cup art with us for T this Tuesday.

    BTW, you may not have read about Darla’s home in the mountains. I saw video yesterday about the area. Her home there is completely gone, ravaged by fire. That’s one of the reasons why she didn’t share T with us this week. She was there when the fires started in that area, so was very lucky to get out.

  12. Oh gosh! How beautiful all this is! Amazing !
    Happy T-Day Dianne!
