Moleskine Journal Preview

HI Everyone! 


This is my first Moleskine, always wondered what the big deal was about these journals, and finally I found out! The smooth and creamy surface, soft parchment colored pages just waiting to be used.  I'd like to share a few pages with you from my new Moleskine  journal:

 
May Day
Usually I'm pretty intimidated by the first pages of a new journal but not this time, it was May 1st, May Day when my journal arrived, I thought it was only right to fill the first page with thoughts about this special day. 



Playing with Brianne-Night & Day
Often inspiration comes from spending time coloring with my granddaughters Brianne and Lyla. This particular day we were talking about day and night time and I was showing Brianne how to draw a house.  I came home and did this page in my journal.  I loved her comment when we were coloring "grass has many colors, add more to make it interesting." 


Win Place Show

Kentucky Derby

On the first Saturday in May we gather together with other horse racing fans to watch the Kentucky Derby.  This year we were home and I did a little sketch and then transferred the images of the day into my journal.


Orchids in the window
This particular morning I was up making coffee and the sun was coming softly through the kitchen window illuminating the massive white orchid blooms. I grabbed my journal and sketched the flowers and finished them in the studio. These orchids were from my daughter Amanda's wedding last July.

I hope you enjoyed these pages, please join me again next week when I will share more from this journal.  Ya'll come back now, ya hear! 

Happy Doodles! 
Suzy

I don't know how I am related to you! Your artwork is amazing. I stand in awe of your gift and I'm trying hard not be a bit jealous of my beautiful sisters talent ;) I would love the orchid as a print!

Hi Suzy, thank-you so much for joining my little blog, much appreciated sweetie. Lol I think you have me mixed up with someone else though, I have no books published and just craft as much as I can in what little spare time I have between looking after my 2 young children. I love your drawings and you may just have tempted me to try the moleskins now!! Hugs x
