Pages from my Journal

 I was trying out a new pen. Shading was supposed to be pink and purple!!
 What I write or draw in my  journal is usually a reflection of something I have read that morning.

I have been using the art journal "Brave Intuitive Painting" by Flora Bowley, The pages are so bright and happy. I love to write with my dip pen and India ink, but it went right through the page. Had to use my
Foray Stylemark colored pens.

Illustrated Journal

These are a few pages from the illustrated journal I started in December, to see if it was something that I would enjoy doing long term. Every other day I made a page early in the day; something pertinent to the day.
I loved doing this, but life got in the way, as they say. I have a pretty regular routine in the morning, and I found the day was over, before I was.

I am  a little behind this new year;  the flu bug got ahold of this household.
I read a lot, and watched the Hallmark Christmas movies.
In December, I  played with drawing an illustration each day.
Although I enjoyed this, I did not stick with it every day. One of my journal pages is of the
"Green Tara", the goddess of compassion. She is practical and down to earth; that is  me.
She also has her foot stretched out in front, on the ground, so she can jump and run, when she is needed.
