Happy Dance

Snoopy was my favorite cartoon
character in High School. I loved
Charles Schultz's Peanuts gang.
Happy Dance for Spring!

Comparison of watercolor flowers, with
and without ink pen.  On Instagram, most
people preferred with the ink outline.
What do you think?

I felt like I had been a bit lazy in my
Hobonichi of late, so decided to add
some fun cartoon characters.

Above right, that tiny coffee cup is my
beverage reference to join the T Party,
which is currently celebrating over
Happy bEARTHday to my friend

Happy Spring, and
Happy Earth Day!

Service Announcement-Surprise Emoji

My good friend Elizabeth is experiencing some 
technical difficulties with the blog that she's
had for years. (Alteredbooklover)

Please visit Elizabeth at her

of Earth Day.  Join her to see
the creative ways she
recycles to make art!

normal blog at Altered Book Lover.

Call it Therapy

Here's a shameless plug inviting
you to stop by my other
to see the pages of my Fake Journal
so far this month...

The Fake Journal is when I pretend
to be someone else, or try to put
myself in their shoes.  The premise
is that if it's 'fake,' it tends to remove
some of the preconceived notions and
value judgments of what your journal
'should be'.  It's an opportunity to look at
things from a new perspective.
Hopefully, it quiets that mental critical 
voice that tells us "that's not good enough."
  Because after all,
it's Fake!

My Hobonichi journaling suffers a bit
when I'm working on my Fake Journal.
The drawings for the April project
seem to take up my drawing energy,
so the Hobonichi has a few more 
stickers and quotes mixed in with
 a very few sketches.

I hope you will stop by 
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog
over at Altered Book Lover, not
only for T Tuesday, but also to see
the annual celebration leading up
to Earth Day.  There are lots of
experiments and tutorials to see,
and beverages to enjoy 
on Tuesdays.

Faking It

I'm doing a Fake Journal again this year.
Pretending to be someone else, 
living in that other person's head 
and viewing things
from a different perspective.

  Roz Stendahl will not be coordinating the 
project this year, but anyone who wants to
give it a go is certainly welcome to do so.
Roz's blog posts are still viewable, and
you can follow the links
on my other blog:

You're on your own...
and that's not necessarily 
a bad thing.

Linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth,
over at Alteredbooklover, for T-Day.

Enjoy your hot beverage...
