Happy February, everyone! Welcome to the month of love ❤ Today I thought I’d share my January Peek Cards with you. What are those, you might ask? Well, remember when I was telling you about the fun style of art journaling I started this year? Peek Cards are a weekly art journaling task in which you do a watercolor around the size of a playing card (I traced around a bank card for mine). I really enjoyed making my peek cards throughout January, especially because the entire time I focused on just having fun, not perfection.Upper Left: New Year’s Decorations in Japan

Looking forward to the adventures February brings!
“For to witness majesty, to find yourself literally touched by it, isn’t that what we’ve all been waiting for?”
After reading Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, I decided to make postcards with owls on them. I made four postcards in total, trying to keep them simple with easy watercolor owls saying the above quote.

I tried my best not to worry too much about detail, and after free-handing the calligraphy, I also quickly free-handed the cute little owls.
It’s a little bit hard to see the light green-colored wings in the picture, but I liked the way it turned out. I’m thinking I might send the postcards to people via postcrossing. I accidentally changed the quote slightly in the postcard featured above, but I still thought the art was nice. Sedaris writes the phrase I quoted when talking about coming across something beautiful and unexpected in nature, and making a private connection with nature in that moment.
Have you experienced any moments of majesty lately?
