Techo Tuesday

Back to the reality of everyday
things at home, it's sometimes
difficult to decide what to draw
in my Techo and other journals.

Tried my hand at drawing a
character in a book...
Turns out that when someone dies,
their seat on the town council is
called a 'Casual Vacancy,'
according to J.K. Rowling.

Random entries: I've noticed that 
when you are preparing to do a swap
of art, it's really easy to obsess about
what to do, and whether or not the
recipient will like it.

The water brush is wonky...and I
'wasted' un-used stamps, 
but they are so pretty...

I am fortunate to have found a
group of mixed media artists who
meet-up once a month. A fun time!
It's hard to decide what to take to
the meeting to work on. I have to
really focus and not take 
too many supplies and 
every journal!

"You can't wear a tiara until you're married."

The Hobonichi Techo has taken over
 as my favorite journal at the
 moment,but I am not giving up on
 The Documented Life Project. 
It's still fun, so I will keep going.

What will happen in April when
I want to add doing a Fake Journal
in addition to DLP and my Techo?
We shall see. 

Linking up with
T Tuesday~ where the bloggers
are all creative, the pages are all
handsome, and the beverages
are all above average.


  1. Love all your journal pages. How cheery and fresh! Happy T day.

  2. Holy cow, Dianne. You may be home and life may have returned to "normal," but your journals still have that wonderful look to them. Gosh, I cant wait to see what April brings this year, since I actually guessed who you were last year. You will certainly be busy, busy. I'd get started now, if I were you (grin).

    You don't have to worry about swappers liking what you make. I've never seen anything you made not look enviable to others who probably wish they were in a swap with you.

    Enjoyed the morning cup of coffee and techno journal you shared with us for T this Tuesday. And of course, I love the art!

  3. Every page was fun to read. You must be enjoying the in person mixed media artists meeting. I would like to find a group like that. Meanwhile you and my other art blogger friends (many on T Tuesday) keep me inspired.

  4. Your pages are also so pretty and colorful! I can tell that you really enjoy all of your journals! Happy T Day!

  5. Wonderful art, as always. I enjoyed the 'Casual Vacancy', JKR is a great writer. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  6. Your journal pages are such a delight to see Dianne! Ha-love your entry about Downton Abbey- I felt exactly the same way-and I was so looking forward to it too. Happy T day!

  7. Love the journal pages. Your have me interested in that book by J K Rowling now...I'm going to need to check that one out.

  8. I see so many people working in Hobonichis and fauxbonichis. Really takes dedication and drawing talent--and you have both!
    Happy T-Day! :)

  9. Love the pages!!! I wish I could find a group to hang out with and create fun and friends :)

  10. The Casual Vacancy was turned into a mini series in the UK - I hadn't read the book(actually don't think I will now!)
    I would say that recipients of swaps would love ANY of your art and that you should stop getting anxious!!!X
    I loved reading your pages today! Hugs, Chrisx

  11. i wish i could draw and sketch like you... i said this before? well, because it is right!
    thanks for your visit and happy belated t-day and rest of the week!

  12. Your drawing- and calligraphy skills are amazing Dianne!
    Always fantastic to see your pages!
    You are a wonderful artist!

  13. Those journal pages are an inspiration! I love all the colors :)

  14. So cool to see you on Saturday! I love that group. Well, when there's no homework that is! Ha-ha! Don't buy that dictionary. I have a large one at home I'll bring to the next meeting and everyone can cannibalize it. Always love seeing what you're doing in your journals Dianne!
