Are You on Instagram?

Monday, February 6, 2017

Happy Monday, My Lovelies!  Horse Show Season is in full swing, and this past weekend was the last one I'll spend at home until March.

I have a question:  Are you on Instagram?  If you are, please follow me and I'll follow you back! I'm trying to post at least once daily, including pages from my art journal.  It's my goal to draw at least a little bit everyday (trying to be disciplined here).

Would you like to see a few of my pages so far?  Thank-you!  You're so kind!   ;P

If you're on Instagram, would you consider following me?  I'd appreciate it so much.  I could use a little encouragement, and I would enjoy your lovely posts, too!

If you look on my sidebar, you can see my Instagram feed.  My Instagram account is @westiechicks.

Also, each Monday I'll feature my favorite page from the previous week here on my blog.

Until next time...

  1. I'm enjoying your posts on instagram. How are you compiling your pictorial diary? Are the pages together in a journal? That would be an interesting post.

    1. Bonnie, I'm using an 11.4" X 11.4" Kunst & Papier Binder Board Sketchbook. I love them because you can decorate the cover however you want, and they lie flat. I also like the square shape because it makes it easier to post to Instagram. The paper is fantastic, but sometimes I want to draw something either on sketch or drawing paper or even watercolor paper. I cut out those drawings and glue them into the Kunst & Papier sketchbook. I'll post about the mechanics of it later this week or next. Good idea!

  2. Your journal pages are just beautiful! RJ, I also enjoy your Instagram photos. I sometimes get busy and forget to check my home page but I always catch up and enjoy your art. I love the first page and your are so right, don't waste precious time on stories we don't enjoy..........Have a wonderful week.

  3. How Fun Ricki Jill. I just started on IG too not too long ago. So much fun. I am following you. Love what you have up so far.

  4. I will definitely follow you. I post a little over there, nothing as interesting as your beautiful journals!

  5. I just "followed" you - Love these journal pages.....a few years ago I created an altered book and began to use it as a journal (that fizzled after a while - lol) Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

  6. No I am not in Instagram, I might have an Instagram account but I don't use it

  7. I love following your journals!

  8. Oh I am so impressed with your art journal RJ, I have always wanted to paint everyday but it just doesn't happen as often as I'd like. You have inspired me to at least keep a sketch book nearby! I just followed you on Insta, my name is paintedapron

  9. I love your journal pages! I am off to find you on Instagram!

  10. Ooh, love your journal pages! I love to collage and work in journals, when I have time! Soothes the soul! Yes, I am on IG but have no idea what I am doing or how to use it.LOL! I will look for you!

  11. I am enjoying your pics on IG each day.

    It sounds like you are busy busy busy and I hope you enjoy it all.
