My New Moleskine
I received a brand new Watercolor Moleskine in the mail the other day. I could hardly wait to open it and have fun experimenting. But with lots to do, it wasn't until today that I had a chance to play.
After an acrylic wash I stamped an image and followed that with cone flowers using my new watercolor pencils....what fun!! (I had a feeling I would like the watercolor pencils and I was right.) I added a bit of Prismacolor pencil and finished it off with some sketchy Pitt pen and added in the journaling. I'm hooked.
I have to thank my dear friend Pam Carriker for opening up to me the world of art journaling. I never thought much about journaling before I took Pam's class, but I truly enjoy this art form. It is such a pleasure to create art simply for the fun of it without wondering if it will "sell." It's great fun to create art that is all mine. I have three journals going now and I do believe I'll be happily journaling for years to come.
