Good evening folks
Well I'm not sure if I'm coming or going at the moment; this full time work lark is taking some getting used to LOL and by the new year I should have a more settled routine which I am looking forward to.
I have, however, managed to get busy on a couple of things this week which is good. I get irritable if I go too long without studio time.
Tonight I thought I'd share just a coupe of the journal pages I've been working on during lunchtimes and breaks at work. Some are still in progress, but thought you may like to see them anyway. They are all from one of my 6 x 6 journals made with one of my cover kits. The pages are 12 x 12 patterned card and I have added tapes and inks to a lot of the pages to give a starting point.

 As I can't really splash paints and ink around at work I  am restricted to pens etc so my doodling is being practised. I like these birds, some of which may end up in rubber(?) one day.
 This I love. The page is not finished but the birds are. Once I'd finished drawing them I used a white pen to add highlights before colouring them with Dylusions inks (in fillable brushes)
 I had to sketch the branch for him to sit on too. Not 100% sure of it, but I kind of like the leaves though.
 I'm still waiting for the right words to write, but that will come.....
 Just white pen doodles on this page with a reminder to me of where I need to go for wisdom when I am feeling confused.
Lastly, just a simple page, I particularly liked this quote.
There you have it then, some of my work place scribbles; hope you like them. Now I guess I'd better get myself sorted for the new week........
Take care folks and I'll catch you soon with some new projects that I'm working on.
