Moleskine

WIP: 5 x 8 Moleskine Journal
"Alice knew there'd be hell to pay"

I have an idea. Inspired by Willowing's class to play with faces - and armed with my beautiful new Moleskine from Carin - I've decided to complete a journal and share the pages with you here. Complete being the operative word. Oh, and share. I'm guilty of starting several journals (some with "themes" or specific techniques I want to explore) but I never really finish any of them. But this new Moleskine is so pretty and full of promise . . . I would hate to do it a disservice. So, as of today, I will be sharing my journal with you in various stages of completion. 

Here are the beginnings of page one, the working title is, "Alice knew there'd be hell to pay." I'll let you know how it turns out . . . promise . . . xo

Krisitn, this is an awesome idea. I suffer from starting not finishing too. This is your time to turn it all around. I'm totally in your corner- knowing THIS is one. Your drawing is great... looking forward to pages and pages of your creative work!!! xo

so very pretty! don't ever feel bad about being a "starter" of many projects... my uncle, who is close to 70 says "it's not what you accomplish in this life, it's how many projects you have going when you die that counts"
i love this theory! your doing a great job! ...blessings...s...

Yay, I'm so happy the moleskine had a small part in making this idea come about. It's such a lovely idea. And your face looks wonderful already! Can't wait to see how it turns out.
