Musing from a good ole Kansas Farmgirl

Come sit a spell. Look into my windows to my little studio on the Kansas Flint hills.

Let the creating begin...

Ok.. the studio is not moving along so fast . With the holidays and not having help to paint and move things upstairs it has just not gotten far at all. So, fo r the moment my studio is from my recliner in my livingroom ! Lol ! I have been missing my muse for so long. I am glad she is returning. I sm also thankful for my friends on Flickr that have inspired me in so many ways. This post is of a Japanese Journal that I have begun. I was inspired by one of my artist friends (Sandy B. at . Thank you Sandy for your email and encouragement) What is a Japanese Journal I hear you asking ! It is an accordian style journal. It has 31 pages all folded up in a hard back cover. It is a Moleskine product and I found them at or I can't remember now ! Oh my ! Lol ! I have only found them in one size and that is 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". The paper is heavier weight and works great with my Sakura pigma pens. No bleed through ,so you can actually do both sides if you so desire. I am posting the first 3 pages. There is a string (the ribbon) that runs through the entire journal. Eventually it will have a story of poem written in it.When that muse hits me ! Lol ! The string was placed first . Then the Zentangle fun began. To learn more about Zentangle visit the creators site at... You may also see my photostream on Flickr at is a picture of the first 3 pages. Enjoy and thank you for joining me in my journey of healing and creating !!
