I got a gift of a handmade sketchbook from a friend and I've started the first pages with a collage

I do Wordle and other word puzzles and I like a piece of scrap paper to write on. The flowers are made from this paper and then I coloured with paint and cut them out. behind them is a piece of paper used as as something to rest on while painting. I also stencilled and stamped it with various things I had. On the lower page the circles were cut with a punch from an old greetings card

The bird and stripy bottom were quick doodles I painted while I was watching my Granddaughter painting. They were separate paintings, the top area was lining from an envelope

I thought I would join in with the '64 Million Artists' January Challenge

I've only done one so far as some are writing, and that is not really my thing.
Day 3 was dots - Will circles do? I had a lot of circles cut out from old greetings cards so I made a couple of collages from those.

I decided to add a bit of drawing to them, trees and foliage. I don't know why I did this but I prefer them with it.
