Daily Moleskine 2018 July pages

Seven months into my daily Moleskine practice and I love how my little planner is getting fat and full! In July’s pages I have been continuing my stamp making and playing, practiced some faces (not sure what everyone is looking at on the last pages!), adding some simple collage elements and messing about generally. This is one of my favourite things about this practice, I get to just play, the paper in this book is thin and the pages end up crinkly and with the image before or after showing through, and because of this there is no pressure.  If I want to paint  face with strange hair and wild eyebrows, I will and I will pretend that is the image I was going for. Ha!  This is where I will try new supplies and ideas, I will test a new stamp or stick in a fresh gelli print or print right onto the page.  It is a wonderful and precious record of where I am at and what I am doing with my art. …

Daily Moleskine 2018 June pages

Lots of sketches and splats of colour in June.  Two weeks of pages were completed while I was on holiday in England so there are some good memories in those pages. I like ‘Don’t panic’ as I did that page right before we flew to England and I was panicking!  I am an airport panicker, always worried I have forgotten something or something will go wrong! Also, I like the sunnies which opened June, a pretty bad sketch but it makes me smile anyway. Are you doing a 365 project?  How’s it going now we are half way through the year? Happy Tuesday x  

Daily Moleskine 2018 May pages

May was a very floral month!  I sketched, painted and collaged all the botanicals along with the Botanicals in Art Journaling class at Get Messy Art Journaling.  I didn’t realize just how flower mad I had gone!  No complaints here. Some of my favourite pages are the flowers for heads collage pages which crack me up and the pages where I was planning and making stamps.  I am super proud of those stamps. Nearly half way through the year, I can’t believe it! Happy Thursday x SaveSave

Daily Moleskine 2018 April Pages

Lots of flowers this past month as I also participated in Creative Bug‘s daily flower challenge with Pam Garrison.  The flowers sit alongside vintage photos, vague figure sketching and a spot of collage. My Moleskine daily planner is filling up nicely and it is lovely to flip through the completed months and see what was going on. I use this planner to test new paint colours or practice a new idea or supply.  It is a no pressure platform to mess about for a day and then turn the page. Some of which I like and some I don’t but whatever the turn out, I always turn the page and carry on. Happy Monday x  

A Year of Colour 2018. February.

I am liking this project a lot, I love how just a blob of colour and a couple of words can convey a full day. Some I remember exactly and some not at all! My favorites are ‘Boe the Boa’ because that was the day that the nine foot boa constrictor escaped from the biology lab at school. She was found the same day under the floorboards and the kids got the afternoon off while they searched for her! ‘Favourite’ is a favorite because it is Paynes Grey which is my favourite. Ha. I also like ‘rain clouds’ which is upside down for no reason and ‘raccoon hanging on’ because I saw a raccoon hanging onto a roof and this was the colour and feeling I saw! Onwards to March!

Daily Moleskine Pages. February 2018.

February pages went swimmingly!  I like almost all of them (which is frankly more than I can say for the January pages).  The beginning of my Moleskine daily planner is starting to get full and the pages are getting crinkly with arty stuff! I haven’t improved on creating absolutely every day but I do make sure each page is filled even if I do two days at a time.  I accept this as I go through my 365 daily project and I will continue to not worry about it. I have enjoyed using my Micron pen to get details in these pages.  There is also collage, old photos, mandalas and bugs! Are you doing a 365 project of any kind?  How is it going?
