Moleskine last page. I miss it already. I really enjoyed working in this journal.

This is the first day of spring and the first page of my garden art journal. I took these photos yesterday. Today, we have at least 4 inches of snow with more on the way. It has been a long cold snowy winter. Only fitting that we have to endure yet another blanket. But at least we had a peek of spring yesterday and looking forward to filling this journal with notes, pictures and art work from my garden. The flowering Pasque was just beginning to peek out of the mulch, I took the photo then tucked her back in. Love this furry little flower. (Lower right hand corner.) I bought the rock at a yard sale downtown last year. Straight from Big Creek. The daffodils are miniature variety. I've tried to journal on the rock three times. Don't like the way the writing looks with the garden. Looks too much like graffiti.

This is the first signature of my homemade watercolor journal. And my first attempt at bookbinding. Thanks to utube it has turned out pretty good. Not sure if I'm going to bead the spine or finish it off.

I started with soft pastels and sprayed with a workable fixative. Then,I went in with more color from my graphite, ink and watercolor pencils. I see this as a future canvas. Love all the color.

Logan is so talented and has a great imagination. He let Grandpa hang his Nascar sign in the garage. Took the cardboard and painted it black. Then used a silver pencil and a ruler to make his mosaic. I had the pleasure of helping him color it in with soft pastels. So fun and I think it is a masterpiece. I really didn't know what he had in mind and just directed him to the supplies he needed. He was SO HAPPY that I had replaced our metallic pencil. Buster chewed our last one to pieces. Anything that drops on the floor is fair game and even though he is OLD he is FAST! We have to bribe him with a cookie to get our stuff back. Sometimes it is too late.
