I couldn't take it any longer....



I could not take it any longer... our house is holiday crazy... I had to do some artwork, besides cards, etc...

Orly had been urging me to start a larger journal and it kept nagging in the back of my mind. I took a half hour and played with some Liquitex paints, my XL Moleskin 11 1/2 X 16 1/2 and this is my results... enjoy! It REALLY feels good to work larger! This is the inside cover and first page done as backgrounds. Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday!

Hey, Brian, I really love this surface. Don't you love liquitex paints? These colors are great. I just want to journal on them.
