Techo Tuesday

Art journaling every day in my
Hobonichi Techo keeps me busy,
and happy...

even when I have "one of those days"
where I can't seem to focus or 
remember anything! I write and draw
about it, and it's like therapy.

Linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth
for T Tuesday, where we share a 
beverage and have a chat. Can you spot
my coffee cup sketches? (and a 
sweet roll!?)

Got some cool collage goodies from
some mixed media friends, and into
the Hobonichi they went!

The Hobonichi Challenge (by April Wu)
on Instagram is up for May. It features a
different fruit each day. Several I've never
heard of, so Google will have to help
with that...it will be fun and educational to
illustrate each one on the appropriate day.

And you can see, above right, that some
days get filled in at a later time...maybe 
because it was a busy day, or maybe because
I didn't know what to draw/write. Blank
spaces do get filled eventually!

The month of April was the month of 
International Fake Journal Month. At my
dreamed up a Fake character, who would
draw about what she saw and experienced.
It was a tough one for me to identify with, 
but the response from my readers 
seems to indicate that it struck a cord.
In a week or so, I will be doing a Wrap-Up,
where I will explain all ~ and my conclusions
about the project.  Stop by to see what
the Faking was all about!

Welcome to all my visitors...what are
you doing to be creative these days?

    I've been playing with mixed media and am having a ball :D

    Happy T-day, Dianne! Hugs, Eileen

  15. Even though I haven't been doing any regular posting myself, I still get your newsletter and love seeing what you do. Love all the sketches you did in your fake journal this year. By the way, do you use watercolor in your Hobonichi and does it bleed through to the back. I am so tempted to buy one but it won't work for me if it bleeds since I use fountain pen and watercolor mostly.


I really appreciate your comments. Leave me a note and Thanks for visiting!
