Little Drawings and Paintings

I have just finished making a couple more small folders (about 6"x 5").....

they are deocrated with layers of paint and ink

and my hand carved stamps.

When you open them, they are full of various weights of small pieces of paper just waiting to be drawn or painted onto.

I am often afraid to draw or paint in my journals, as I am afraid I will make a mess of it, or draw something I don't like. This way if I like it I keep it in the folder, and if I really don't like it, I can throw it away.

This one I made for myself some time ago.... it is beginning to have a number of drawings and paintings in, and I find it so nice to use.... never worrying about messing up!

and here are the two most recent paintings.... as you can see by the dates I don't manage to use it often, but when I do, I enjoy it a lot.


  1. Those are so pretty and elegant and I love your paintings too.

  2. Those would make great gifts! Ever think of opening an Etsy shop? PS Love your giraffe!

  3. I like the folder idea! Yours are lovely! I dont see how you could ever mess anything up, your work is always beautiful! Have a nice weekend.

  4. I love that idea, I am rubbish at commiting to a journal these would be perfect for someone like me.
    You really must start selling online so that I can purchase some goodies from you :)

  5. another great idea and more wonderful art!

  6. What a wonderful idea....I usually grab the nearest scrap to sketch on, then don't know where to put it. This idea is perfect! Love your art, too!
