My Journal Monday–Week 9

Well, today is back to the grind for a little while before my final vacation of the year.  I’ve been watching some Dawn DeVries Sokol videos on  She has an art journaling instructional class on that site.  I was particularly interested in her doodling.  That is her specialty.  🙂  It inspired me to start a doodle page in one of my new journals, a Strathmore mixed-media journal that I picked up from Michael’s last week with my 50% coupon (and you will need your coupon–they are a bit pricey there~$35?).  It is a nice journal.  I wanted to try it out and see how I liked it.

Here is what is my Journal this morning for My journal Monday:


I am also posting this on Creative Every Day.  🙂

It is a start. I can hardly wait to get home tonight to work on it some more.  🙂

  1. Fun! You are taking your art in a whole new direction. Will you be taking a book to doodle? We are going out of town a couple days. I have my watercolors packed.

    • Oh, yes! I always take supplies with me. What I get to actually do varies with different trips but I always prepare for the opportunity. And besides, I would feel completely naked if I didn’t have some paint, pens and paper available at all times! I even keep a stash in my office, although I never get to use it. I know it is there and that is enough for my obsession. 🙂
