Documenting the garden

This week I got some Zeta journals in the mail, and have been very eager to try them. This painting were made in one, and it's goooood. So smooth, easy to draw and easy to paint on. I love it.
I'm thinking of documenting our garden in it, when things bloom and so on.

In my package I also had ordered a pad og Yupo paper. I made a first try on that as well, but have to make some more to be able to tell if I like it or not. It has to be over the weekend, tomorrow we're all celebrating our constitution day. I have lots to prepare.

I also got myself some new Twinks this week, so I'm well prepared for any art adventure. Right now I'm watching my peony tree. Last year it had one flower only, this year it seems there will be six. Flowers as large as my hand. I can't wait till it happens.

It's this peony tree, or bush will be more correct right now, which is my first entry in the new journal.
I'm linking this post to Friday Sketches.
Thanks for visiting, you're much appreciated.
