Morning coffee and my Hobonichi Techo...
...and painting in some doodles that I drew
in pen while watching TV. They come in
handy to add a little 'arty interest'
to my journal entries.
I realize that my pages are crazy 'busy.'
I pack as much onto these little pages
as possible. Above, the watermelon page
before it was finished.
And here you can see quite a bit more
was added to the page. That's just how I
roll. The stickers on the left were unearthed
among children's supplies. I think these babies
might be over 30 years old, from Hallmark.
And they still stick!! so...I am a supply
hoarder, I admit it.
Loving the Hobonichi Challenge this month
(from April Wu on Instagram) which is fruit.
Cheerful and pretty subjects to draw, and
I'm learning about a few fruit that I
might want to try, like Mangosteen. Not
sure it is available fresh in the U.S. though...
have you ever tried it?
Anyone else remember that old song
"put the lime in the coconut and
drink it all up?!"
I seem to be using more Washi tape and
collage in my Hobonichi this year. I think
this journal will be even bulkier than
my 2016 edition.
And here is the partial page for today,
lest you think the entries are done all
in one sitting. Actually, the page may get
added to a little at a time during the day;
often just notes about what got
accomplished or what happened. Then
I finish it up the following morning. It's
interesting to try to 'notice' how you
proceed with your journal pages. It is often
intuitive, and you have trouble explaining to
someone else how it happened!
Do you follow a planned process when
you make art, or does it just 'happen?'
Linking up for the T Tuesday blog hop.
I recommend you stop by for a cuppa
and a chat. There might even be
baked goodies...you never know!
