Moleskine Monday - Brown Eyes

Good Morning,
I feel like I'm starting to get a bit more comfortable working in my journal.  I still find the small size a bit challenging at times but I'm going with the flow.  I got a hold of my Christy Tomlinson stencil and when to town with my molding paste.  You have to move pretty fast so that paste doesn't dry on the stencil.  I will normally have a wet brush and paper towels waiting as soon as I'm done stenciling to remove the molding paste quickly.

I picked up this chevon washi tape from Hobby Lobby months ago and was afraid to use it because the pattern is so strong.  Once the layers are built up it adds a nice texture to the page so you know that means I will be back for more.

I wanna say HELLO to my new followers!  Thank you everyone for your support!  I will be posting more now.  I'm trying to see if I can get some art journal videos made.

I'm having trouble photographing my Moleskine...sometimes I forget to lay it flat at night so when I'm ready to photograph it's a fight to keep it open.  I am working on getting a scanner but in the meantime does anyone have any suggestions???
