My first Moleskine!

I got my very first Moleskine!

My old Art Journal was falling apart, and I was not even half way through. I was getting more and more annoyed with having to stick pages together in order to make the paper sturdy enough, and still I had paint and gel medium leaking through. It was time for something new!

But finding that something new wasn't easy. The shops I usually get my art supplies from have lots of sketchbooks, but the paper isn't thick enough. They carry water color pads, but they would not be suitable for (almost) daily use, not if I want to actually keep all those pages.

After lots of searching I decided this was it. It was time for my first Moleskine. After all, I had tried all the cheaper journals, and they just did not fit the bill.
I ordered one online and got it the next day!

It took me a few days to get started though. I wanted it to be 'perfect', you know. A bit like how I was in school when starting a new notebook in the new year. But then we went out for a day in beautiful Maldon and I did my first journal page. It felt so good! I love the paper, I love the cover, I'm not too sure about the size yet because it is different to what I am used to, but I love it!

Yesterday, I added some rub-on letters to the cover. There is no doubt now that this Art Journal is mine! I will have so much fun filling it up with thoughts and dreams and things I see and hear.
