For the Birds




If I was a bird 
   I'd fly away.


Just for a day, 
           Or two.

Daily Sketches & Books I am making.

Happy Friday!

Decisions Decisions

What should I do on this beautiful Saturday morning?
Hmmmm, clean windows?




Or indulge in some bookbinding ?

 

And then there's a favourite journal calling me to come and play...



Then there is my "Headquarters" in desperate need of re- organising. 
Might find something exciting in here. ��







Decisions, decisions. ❤️

Journal 52 Weeks 13 to 18



Week 13: How does Your Garden Grow?
Well after this long, hot Aussie summer my garden is not really growing, it is suffering. I was lucky to spend a weekend at a friend's home and her garden is absolutely luscious! I decided to paint, (not an original idea, but my patterns on these leaves are original), some of the fallen leaves in her garden for my week 13. I will paste it into my journal.

'Oh, What a Tangled Web we Weave'

Doodling

As I sit and relax in the evenings I like to doodle, or as my Mother used to call it, 'wasting ink'.
I find it a meditative exercise.
As my eyes and mind follow the lines on the paper I really do feel the stresses of the day melt away.








Have A Beautiful Day.

and gave it swirly whirl of my own. I regret not making
this on a better quality paper...

gesso, white gel pen and printed words on crappy paper.
