This month was a busy one. We had a lot of gatherings with friends and family. So not much time for anything else, like art journaling. But at least I tried something new, a new art journal format: a little Moleskine cahier in A6 format. It’s perfect to use up your paper scraps and the letters are looking really big on the pages. The only thing, that bothers me, is the thin paper. If I write on one page, you can see it on the other side. So not beautiful. But maybe I have to find a new way to work with this kind of paper. How do you work with too thin paper?

This is the February prompt from Get Messy: “What is the one thing you most want your children (real or imaginary) to know about love?”. I found it hard to decide, which ‘fact’ is most important, so I wrote everything down. But it was very interesting to think about, what I would tell my future children or a good friend, who is still looking for love and struggeling. As a background I used the negative surroundings from an alphabet sticker sheet. Not sure, how it’s called. Especially with the different colors it looks so fun.

    I just discovered your blog through the Get Messy link-up and I completely love your style. I am new to art journaling and I too have a Moleskine cahier journal, and the pages ARE really thin. I’m finding I want to do more painting and watercolor than I had thought, so I may mix it up with a new journal. We shall see!

    I love your pages, so graphic but simple and stunning. As for thin paper, I can’t do it. I’ve often wondered how people use moleskines for this endeavor. I need mixed media paper as I can’t seem to stay away from the watercolors.

    Very nice pages! I like the addition of papers and word strips. When I don’t want things showing through on my pages in my moleskine, I use gesso on it. It wrinkles some, but I don’t mind. I like the well used look it gets.
