Man, I feel soooo chilled… 🙂
And no, don’t think for a minute that I have been smoking something suspicious because that’s not my style!
I was just feeling high on life, with my belly full of peanut butter (shhhh… don’t tell anyone I finished the jar!!).
I could hear the gentle sound of the rain falling outside my window… You know, when there is no wind and no other sound but that gentle and soothing drumming of droplets hitting the grass and ground?
Well, sometimes I couldn’t hear it because of Poppy’s loud snoring! I think he was feeling chilled too, all cosy and warm below his pink (oops) fleecy blanket in his bed, by my feet.
Appreciating the simple things is life is what happiness is all about, wouldn’t you agree?
And so I decided to have another pyjama day, hehe 😉 You know, when you just spend the whole day in the same clothes you normally wear at night. Oh come on, you know what I mean, don’t lie to me 😛
I set out to do some ”chilled” painting in my red Moleskine art journal but as you can see from the photos, it didn’t end up looking ”chilled”! It’s actually quite vibrant and energetic and I just love the results.
This will be a wonderful spread to look back at every now and then, to remind me that ”everything in my world is A-OK…” 🙂

Of course you may not have the same supplies I used (and definitely not the same stamps as I hand carved them) but it doesn’t matter, go along with it anyway and use what you have. Then feel feel free to post a photo in my Facebook group here.
Peace out my Creative Friend!!
