Techo Tuesday - Birds, Clouds and Pluto

Lots of birds are appearing in my
Hobonichi Techo journal, along with
daily happenings. The Hobonichi Challenge
that I am following has a theme this 
month of "Above the Clouds," hence
the many birds.

On the 19th, the challenge was "Pluto."
I am sure it was supposed to be the planet,
but that didn't appeal to me, so....
Pluto the Disney dog made his smiling

Crane and clouds were the prompts for
these two days...

I think this may be my favorite for the
week...the prompt on the 22nd was "dreams."
So, a bit of sketch after Kandinksy's
'Dreamy Improvisation' happened.

I am pleased with the way the 
parrot turned out, and the quote
makes me smile.

Did you spot the coffee mugs on these
pages? I'm linking up with 
Bleubeard and Elizabeth for 
T Tuesday. Stop by for a beverage
and a fun visit with a wide variety
of friends, sharing their delightful
arts and activities!


  1. Love your pages, and the wonderful drawings. Your Pluto os great, and I love the quote with the parrot. No, I'm not thinking of getting one in case I need someone to look after it when I'm away. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. oh what marvelous sketches and pages Dianne-that eagle is just magnificent!! Love your version of Pluto:):) Happy T day!

  3. I always look forward to your blogpost. I so love your little doodles and drawings. The owl, bald eagle and the parrot are stunning. I am in awe of your lettering and I had to smile at Pluto. And the parrot quote is great. I must remember that one.
    Happy T-Day,

  7. I always enjoy reading your pages, there is so much to admire - your drawings are stunning! The crane and wispy winter clouds are amazing, your parrot is so beautiful and Pluto is perfect! You have been busy and it looks like eaten at some great places too - Happy T Day! J :-)

  8. I do love the way you design your pages. They are always so well-balanced to my eye. Thx for sharing them :)

    Happy T Tuesday!

  9. I want to see those painted papers and art structure. You can't just throw that out there and pretend it doesn't exist.

    Been looking back over my messages to you. Must have had a problem when Scott changed my e-mail account. In case you didn't get my message, I want to thank you for the awesome Christmas and Chinese New Year tip-in. I'll be showing it on Chinese New Year.

    I can't believe the beauty of this journal and your fantastic parrot. I also LOVE the coffee mugs and the Pinterest sign. It looks so authentic. Of course, so does the bald eagle and parrot, too. You have a real way with both birds and landscapes. I simply ADORE reading your tales and seeing your challenge entries, including Pluto. Very cute.

    Thanks for sharing coffee and beautiful art with us for T this Tuesday and thanks again for my beautiful tip-in.

  10. I love seeing your journal and its especially great with all those birds. How fun. Glad you're back and sharing T with us. Hope everyone is well. Hugs-erika

    Happy T day!

  13. I love seeing your journal pages. They're lovely, as well as thought- and giggle-provoking. I giggled at Pluto (I would have used the same interpetation. Who want sto draw a planet?) and the parrot w/ Will Rogers quote. Just charming :D

    Happy T Day, Dianne!
