Three down…….one to go

image

I just finished my 3rd moleskine! Three! I love these books! I love this size for the most part. As a novice they work perfectly for me. Someday, I’ll get the bigger one, someday…..

As you can see I’ve been working on my doodle alphabet. These lowercase letters have been fun! I may go thru and rework my uppercase when when finished. I really must get a life! I must get out a little more and take a DRAWING class! Really, I must! I don’t know what’s stopping me. Probably I don’t want to be told what to do, work on a piece that I don’t find interesting? Or having to be somewhere at a certain time (other than work). But I would love to meet some like-minded people! I know there are many of you out there.

It’s like a trip down memory lane, when I open these up and look at what I’ve done. Trust me there are some pages I’ve totally given up on. But those pages come in real handy when I’m testing out my markers, for color contrast and ink supply.

I only buy the watercolour moleskines. They can take the abuse.

Just opened this one tonight! Now, I’ve got to find one locally to have on hand. I never know how fast I’ll go thru these. Could be a week or a month!

Thanks for stopping by :)

P.S. I’ll let you know when I find a class

Your alphabet doodles are just wonderful. I wish I could sit down and look through each one of your moleskines....I'm sure it would be fun and very colorful.

Your moleskines must be a real treat to look through. Your alphabet letters are striking with their brilliant colour and design.

It is very satisfying to see the empty pages of a moleskin come to life! Congrats! Why don't you send a smaller portable version out into the world for others to fill and see what comes back to you...

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
