Small and beautiful



I seem to be in the land that migraines forgot but cluster headaches relish at the moment.  With both kids out of the house today I have pretty much slept most of it, but I did have a lucid hour to eat and relax whilst trying to come back to the land of the living before this afternoons school run hit.   While relaxing I decided to have a play in my mini art journal.


The book I'm using is a small moleskine sketchbook which measures 14 x 9 cm.  Its got 80 pages in it apparently, at least half of which have now got paint on them. This is the first page that is now ready to journal on.


I think this could well be one of my favourite pages yet and I thoroughly loved working on a small scale.

Ooh it's lovely - that and the moleskine combination make it perfect for me! Hope you get back to 100% land of living soon, poor you.

Lovely page, and I love the idea of a small moleskine book, I've been wanting to try art journaling but find the bigger pages a bit daunting. You've inspired me to get going with a small book :D hope your head is better soon

Wow - I'm so inspired after seeing that. Sure I've got one of those little books somewhere... Where was the little girl image from? Sure I've seen her on a postcard somewhere?
It's totally beautiful and almost too sweet to journal on :-)
ps. Hope you feel better soon x

I do hope you're feeling better. I have to say I think your journal is just fabulous, can't wait to see more pages.

Beautiful! Love all the detail you put into your backgrounds, all the colour and stamping.

This is really sweet - love the colours and designs you've used. I can see the attraction of a little journal perhaps for days when time is short. Hope your headaches improve - I managed to grow out of mine.
