My first Moleskine 2008


Well I just had to go and find a shop that sells Moleskine. So this is my first one. It felt a little strange working on the small size page, I usually work on a larger size piece of paper. I have decided to make it a nature journal and hope to use it throughout the year. Here is one of the first pages, red berries and leaves which I found and Collected in January. I like the creamy yellow colour of the paper which again is a change as I usually work on white. So my very first Moleskine with one of my first drawings, in pencil and acrylic paint for the red berries and brown leaf.

Your work is absolutely exquisite ! I have been looking on your website. Thanks for the kind comments on my blog. I think your bags and patchwork are lovely too. Funny, as I was trying to sew bags from vintage fabrics today, and I have just started going to a patchwork course this week !Also funny that if I could choose to live anywhere in the world I would choose Ruskins house overlooking beautiful Lake Coniston !I felt very cheerful after reading your comments today, many thanks, warm wishes, keep in touch !
