Today I share a spread in my Letter Journal 3 with you.
I used my exercise painting of abstract poppies I showed some time ago. See this posting.

I cut it in circles and now it makes me happy to have it used. I think that is a good use of it and it is more beautiful to look at and it found  a nice home - much better than just laying here around and getting lost in the end or getting scarelessly discarded .

 It's of course meant for Elizabeth's wonderful

Art Journal Journey

 It's otherwise my DT-piece for our new

I am delighted you stopped by and would be more than happy to meet you at both mentioned sites!

Moo Mania  &  more



  1. Stunning use of the poppies you created with a palette knife. I am STILL in awe of your drawing skills and how beautiful this spread turned out.

    I agree with you about the idea that your art could get lost or damaged. I found an image I dropped that I wanted to use just yesterday that Squiggles been playing with. It will teach me to check my hands when I move an image from room to room.

    I am so happy you shared this because it's definitely a blessing. You have been so supportive of my theme this month and I will continue to thank you daily, my dear friend. And it goes without saying, thanks for sharing this spread with Art Journal Journey.
