Moleskine Art Journal Pages


My beautiful daughter gave me a Moleskine sketchbook for Christmas which I absolutely love. The pages hold up so well under all kinds of abuse and it's the perfect size for art journaling. I've completed a few pages in it so far, the latest being the one I did last night.


My goal for this page was for it to have a very vintage feel to it. I've always thought that vintage nude photos are so beautiful, so I named this page
"Beauty".


I'm still practicing the layering technique on my pages, and I did several layers on this one. I do seem to be getting a little better at it, I think.



I really like how this spread turned out and I can't decide if I should do anything else to it... or if I should even journal on it, so I'm leaving it as it is... for now.

And speaking of journaling...


the new issue of Art Journaling Magazine arrived in my mailbox this week, so my plan for this evening is to get cozy, listen to the rain, and lose myself in this beautiful magazine for a few hours. What a glorious way to spend a rainy evening!

Wow! That is some serious texture and color. I'm amazed at your attention for detail. I would never be able to produce such elegant journal pages. I typically just write stuff, though occasionally I draw things in my journals. I treasure writing things by hand still, though I like the time saved by typing - like on a blog. But there's something special about keeping a hand-drawn/written journal. In fact, I've resorted to "going back in time" by using a quill with FW inks.

My favorite journal books these days are Pentalic Traveler's Sketch Books. They are nice pocket sized, and have a durable waterproof cover. They come in a variety of bold colors (including pink!). I like how they open flat and accept ink very nicely - though they are more "intended" for sketching and are great for any dry media as well. The primary reason I like them is because they are so cheap compared to other options. I've never been one to care about name brand, so I prefer cost savings!
