I know, April is already the past. In March I had set myself the goal of starting again with a kind of picture diary. But then it took forever until my new sketchbook was finally delivered.
As a little girl I had several painted diaries. They consisted of a number of cut pages, which were bound together with a beautiful colorful ribbon, favorable a red one with a golden rim.

Today these painted books are called artists journals, and there are numerous bloggers dealing with this topic, and even video tutorials, on how to design such books, can be found on the WWW.
My little picture diary simply serves the purpose of relaxation and gives me the opportunity to work with colored pencils, watercolor and real paper again.
