I’m trying to get my Moleskine finished…I have about three more spreads and I’m determined to do it.  Here are two of the latest pages.  The first one is a really quick sketch with a  peat tinted charcoal pencil.  I went over the lines with a Sharpie pen. There’s some dried glue or something on her cheek.   The second page I did today. I painted the page with watercolor…didn’t like the watercolor on the Moleskine paper. I glued some collage pieces down over the watercolor and used Caran d’Ache crayons on the page.  I had to use my Signo uni-ball pen because my Sharpie wouldn’t write over the crayon.

    The face is so pretty. She has such a sweet expression. I know a lot of people use watercolors in their moleskines but I don’t like it either. I tried it once and was not happy with my results.

    Your work is lovely! I also have a hard time picking the right pen for writing over watercolour. Thanks for the advice of using uni-ball pen:)

    Some times all the fun of experimentation is the best part…
    although I doubt anyone would complain about having results like these, either! 🙂

    Love your girl, she is very beautiful and has a wonderful expression on her face. The flowers are very pretty. I had a hard time with watercolor and even watercolor pencil in my moleskin journal and won’t use those mediums in my next one.
