Here’s a couple more pages from the #artmarks30daychallenge:
There aren’t many marks on this, I was going for the minimalist look. Quite by accident it’s rather dreamy and looks a bit from outer space.
This one is completely different and looks like a dolphin’s passport or something. I feel a poem coming on.
Enough nautical miles swum
For a stamp from every sucker
On an Octopus’s tentacle.
For those of you on Instagram, here’s a few cool art journalers to follow:
The next post will be about making your own stamps with things around the house.

Greetings to the dads.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads today 💙🏈🎸⚽
So, does anyone know what these are called? Could it be a burl or a knot?
The photo could have been more macro but I didn’t think that was as interesting. I like the surrounding wood. It looks like a bowl or a plate from a long time ago.
Has anyone seen this marking on a tree?
Round and around

Have a great week![Top]
After some seriously weird weather we got some sledding snow yesterday. I took my two and a couple of other kids to the slopes. They had a blast. (Note to self: Take my camera out more).
Here’s some other kids playing later on. What a fun day playing with all those kids.
Today it was Sandy’s turn to play with her friend. What a hoot they had jumping around (again no camera).

Happy Friday! 🎈
Could it be Wednesday?
Let’s all four wheel it over
the hump in the week
sun shines down on grass
first day of February
where is all the snow?
Hi folks, February is such a fresh month. It’s usually freezing here so let’s be grateful for the weird weather.
How did I get to forty without knowing you are supposed to say gribbit three times on 1st Feb. Who knew?
Anyone like to join in trying a haiku every day in Feb? No pressure. Steam might run out by Friday.
Have a great day![Top]
You cannot really
beat the laser focus of
making scrambled eggs.
It occurred to me whilst making scrambled eggs this first morning of the year, that it was a great example of focusing.
The dog wanted to come in the house in the middle of me making it and I just couldn’t leave it. She let herself in but has yet to learn to shut the door behind her.
I can usually do all sorts while making poached eggs but scrambled no way.
So if anyone wants to learn how not to get distracted or do one thing at a time then try scrambling eggs.
It’s month of poetry so expect a lot of poems this month as I dust off my poetry brain.
Happy New Year![Top]

U for Ullswater
Under the mist
Utterly stunning surroundings
Ullswater was the nearest lake to Phil’s parents caravan in Penrith, a beautiful campsite with a stream running all around it.[Top]
