Returning To Work…

I’ve recently had to return to work in my husband’s business.  It has been an adjustment for me.

I find simply creating something – no matter how small or simple, helps relax me in the evening after work.  I’m reminded that it isn’t completing a masterpiece that is important but just doing some ART that brings me JOY!  🙂

I started a new (purchased) journal today from Strathmore (since my handmade journal is still in process) –

I love the soft cover and can’t wait to decorate the inside cover like I suggested in yesterday’s post!

It was relaxing to draw circles with Tombow  water soluble markers (and Artist Loft which are a cheap brand at Michael’s).  ADD water with a water brush and then MAGIC happens when the colors blend together!

I started to add some highlights of my white space with a black Micron .01 pen:

This is so FUN!  I love the colors and can’t wait to finish dooding!

Happy Creating!  🙂
