Moleskine Magic

After a couple of weeks of not working in my journal, I got started with a page of leaf prints I made on deli paper last week. I really wanted to add some of these prints to my small moleskine journal, sized 3.5" x 5.5". It is really quite small . . . .

I find myself returning to my small moleskine journal, again & again, page after page! The 3.5" x 5.5" size means it does not take a lot of time to complete a spread and it is fun to do.

I'm happy to say that I continued to be "called" to work/play in my art journal. At the moment, not having a prompt is not inhibiting me. More often than not, every few days I have this feeling that I want to do something creative and so I make myself go start something in my art journal . . .
