I bring to you another traveling Moleskine entry this evening.
I’m finding a new challenge now with keeping up with my drawing, book binding and art journaling while working two – yes two – jobs.
I am gratefully, gainfully employed full time now, doing graphic design work. And I’m even more lucky because I get to work with beautiful paintings and drawings of flowers while doing my job.
My other part-time work is nice and low stress and I get to work around creative people and supplies while I’m there.
Yes I feel pretty blessed!
But working two jobs certainly eats into the time I have available to do what I really love – art journaling and book binding.
The traveling Moleskine to the rescue!
I had such inspiration hit the other night during a little quiet down-time at my part-time job so I took it out and did some drawing.
I am a member of a Facebook group called Art Journal Prompt Fridays and the latest prompt was to use fancy banners. So I took that prompt and used it for my drawing.
If you do any art journaling or you are contemplating giving it a go, I really recommend prompts. In fact, when I began my love affair with art journaling, I relied on a lot of prompts my first month back in June when I pushed to do a new layout every day. I might not have been able to do so many layouts without the help of prompts.
I haven’t used prompts for a couple months now and I’m sort of wanting to get back to doing a few prompt-inspired layouts in my art journal again.
And what about my Canson art journal? Well fear not. I have another layout currently in progress right now. It’s just taking a while because my free time in which to do layouts has been significantly reduced. I should have something finished and ready to share, however, in a couple days.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my little quickie traveling layout for now. :)
Thanks for reading!
