Last Friday, I showed you the beginning of this journal page:
I added a drawing of a weird looking bug and then discovered the dictionary definition for a Glow Worm on my page.I decided to explore this idea further.
Next, I added some acrylic paint and colored part of my bug with Tombow markers:
I added some interesting facts about a Glow Worm to my page and finished coloring my “beetle” wearing a hat… why not! 😉
I enjoyed learning something new while playing in my art journal.
P.S. I have decided to blog 1-2 days a week. I will be posting on Mondays and possibly Wednesday. I will be posting more on Instagram where you can find me at art_jill_kuhn

I recently discovered the imaginative art of Stefan G Bucher.
Stefan drew a daily monster for years. If you’d like to see some of his art, he has a couple of YouTube videos. Google his name to find them. His art is also on Instagram.
His method of creating monsters with ink and a compressed can of air inspired my Walking Stick:
Did you know that Walking Stick insects are also known as stick insects, stick bugs or bug sticks?
My insect is a little on the strange side but that makes it all the more interesting to me!

According to Wikipedia, Courgette is French for Zucchini!
A friend recently gave me a large Zucc – 11 inches in length:
I hope to make Gluten-Free Zucchini bread with it. 🙂
It got me thinking about how versatile this vegetable is – so I created a poem to go with some Zucchini inspired art:
Zucchini Bread Cookies and cake Is there anything – This veggie cannot make?
Pizza and noodles Omelets galore This vegetable is never Ever a bore!
A stir fry perhaps? Maybe a Quiche? It’s versatile uses – Are very unique!
It shreds, it fries – Chops and it blends It seems to me, It’s bounty never ends!
Happy Cooking Creatively! 🙂
