Art Journal - Life's Journey Book 4

Hullo everyone
It's been a while since I posted a Journal on this Forum (sorry !) But I have been sketching in my Journal, every now and then.
I like to use multi-media in my Journals - ink, watercolor, Inktense Pencils, Neocolors etc. and also a bit of Scrapbooking too.

This is my current Journal. I'm trying a cheap one, which has thin paper, no good for watercolor washes, so I've resorted to painted on watercolor paper then gluing the completed pages into my Journal. I've already done many pages in it but will only post the up-to-date pages.

Charcoal sketches of my beloved Newfoundland/Labrador dog "Blossom",who went to the Rainbow Bridge 2 years ago, she was 15 years old. Even though I have another puppy - Pippa 10months old Jack Russel/Fox Terrier, and absolute ball of mischief! - I still miss my Blossom intently, and I guess I always will.

I've been offline for a few weeks with eye problems and had an eye operation on 18th February. Eyes still not syncing properly but now I'm able to see to type...always a big improvement! This is a sketch of how my eyes looked for some time after my op. I had very weird looking eyes! They are now looking much better thank goodness.

Some carnations, a friend brought me after my op. They smelt delightful. This is ink and watercolor

I bought some new Gladiola corms and planted them with lots of fertilizer. I looked around and my Pippa puppy, had dug them all up again...little horror! So I replanted and they are flowering now - it's late Summer here in New Zealand.
Inktense pencils

That's all for now folks. I just need to get on and sketch in my Journal more.
Thanks for looking!
