…I have a few pages left in my large journal to finish…my  plan is to get the last pages completed and move on to the cover, Margaret and Alison are also working on this large journal on a Saturday and have become ‘Journal Buddies’ so we brain stormed at the weekend and have come up with a couple of ideas for the cover…can’t wait to get started now!

..i can’t remember if i showed you this page, one i love because it shows the ‘Mom and Dad’ owl with their little owls..reminds me of  my family x

journal page 2

this page i painted with gesso then covered with black paint..took 2 coats but made a great surface for..

sitting in my comfy chair with a white pen and doodling away

journal page 1

if you notice my design isn’t perfect the,circles aren’t perfectly round but that doesn’t matter…..it was the doodling that mattered…it makes me feel calm when i doodle, i get lost in the squiggles, dots and dashes…it’s like a release
