    A Peek in the Moleskine

    "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered.

    I started these doodles during our summer vacation in Pennsylvania.

    trying to come up with a graffiti-ish style for chunky letters

    doodles in pitt pen and white gellyroll on watercolors

    stained with different types of tea and a mug, pitt pen

    more doodles with the broken-tipped gellyroll... which is almost empty

    So that's what's up in the 5x8" moleskine. Almost full!

    I love them all. I want to print them out and hang them on the wall for inspiration.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    Your doodles and watercolor work are both awesome and inspiring! I also really like the quote. I always want to jump into my journal and start drawing or doodling after visiting your blog. Thank you for the inspiration.

    Your work and words are very inspiring. Your blog is the top of my list when I start my rounds in the morning. I never knew doodling could be so fascinating. Just love it. Just need some pens, thanks for the info. bb

    I love this post! My very first 5x8 Moleskine arrived in the post and I was afraid to start playing in it - not now!

    I was wondering, do you sometimes apply the watercolour first and then use the pen? Or is usually a drawing first and then the colour?

    09.29.2011 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

    Wendy, Great question. I do both - draw first and watercolor first. On the 3rd, 4th and 5th page above I watercolored first. Just let the paint thoroughly dry or you might damage your pen. Pitt pens work great under/over watercolor because they are permanent and dry very fast so there's no bleeding if you paint over the lines.
