Mix It Monthly and Art Journal Journey - Theme Coffee and circles

 
I have never been a coffee drinker other than an occasional cup every now and then until recently. 
 I  purchased Folgers Breakfast Blend and we love it! I love to open the can and smell it! This is my favorite coffee cup which was my inspiration for my drawing.  And the W. C. Fields quote describes my morning moods perfectly. I am definitely not a morning person! And I was really surprised to see when I was commenting on some of the other art for Mix It Monthly that there is also an Art Journal Journey site that has a challenge with circles!

That's a great use of repetition to form your background. I also love what your journaling, especially that funny but very true quote by W.C. Fields. Blessings!

I really like this spread. The cup looks like a morning comfort. The W C Fields quote is fun. I love your quote about really loving the smell of coffee because I love the smell of coffee, but hate the taste (always a bitter disappointment).

Nancy I too love the feeling of combining two challenges into one spread...what a satisfaction ;) I sooo love the orange sun and the sweet watercolor heart cup with hot goodness in it :) thank you so much for spending a cup to Mix It Monthly ♥ Conny

I like both coffee cups, the one you've drawn and the real one, and that's a great quote from W.C. fields. Altogether very nice coffee-ish pages.
