I purchased a new art journal called, “Dylusions” by Ranger from Amazon last week:
I like the thick cardstock pages which are perfect for collage. I also like that it has an envelope in the front of the book for storage:
The paper size is 11.25 inches by 8 inches. The book comes in other sizes but I liked the size of this one. I like that the cover is plain brown paper so I can decorate it myself.
I created one of my “hidden pictures” collages over the weekend. I like the “I Spy” books, how about you?
There is something meditative about cutting and glueing paper that I enjoy.
I hope you have fun finding the items in my “I Spy, collage!”
What other treasures can you find that I didn’t list?

I was feeling dog-tired yesterday after work so I decided to mix things up for today’s Weird Bird Wednesday.
When I posted this doodle on Instagram recently, my sweet and talented friend, Carol at Carolscreativepapers.wordpress.com told me she saw a bird and dog in it:
What do you see? I hope you share it with me!
I find creating these zen doodles very meditative. I always enjoy it when I get one completed because it means I can start something new!
Wishing you a happy day!

These birds might hang from a rear-view mirror…
Or perhaps they are rolled in a game of Yahtzee?
But I believe they are Para-dice birds… Flying around in Paradise!
How many weird birds can you find hidden in this picture?
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I like finding images in clouds but sometimes I see them in trees too. Do you see the face in this tree?
Sometimes I see animals… Like a camel’s face in this tree growth:
You have to use your imagination a bit…
I see a bunny in this rock:
And a heart shape in this one:
What images do you see? I’d love to hear from you!
Wishing you a happy day doing whatever brings you the most JOY! And maybe a little time to see images in the clouds, trees or rocks near you!
May you have a Sunny Sunday, friends!! 🙂

Last weekend, I created a loose watercolor painting of Poppy flowers. I decided to doodle over my painting:
This was the before doodle painting:
I added some hidden Poppy people and houses in my doodles:
Can you find them? I would love to hear what you think!
I really enjoyed creating this doodle and plan to make more of them!
Happy Creating! 🙂
