Moleskine Entry By J

J got her little artsy hands on my Moleskine 2 days ago and insisted on contributing a page (or two). Of course I relented, I mean, I'm a huge fan of this little artist!

Page 1
So the story goes like this ... J (that's the 'girl' - the human drawing in the middle) with the red hair in pigtails (complete with blue hair clips) is playing with her (imaginary) friend 'Sasa' (with the red & green eyes) on the far left. They are at the playground - as you can see, there is a pink slide on J's right side. Also enjoying the fun is Bubbles, our Miniature Schnauzer (yep, that black drawing with Mickey Mouse ears and tail at the bottom right).

Now the story gets complicated ... something to do with Fairytopia ... rainbow-coloured fairy-wings ... and closing doors so that no one gets knocked down by the rainbow-coloured car (at the bottom right) with pink and green wheels. Unfortunately the picture is not clear enough, but somewhere amongst the colourful 'intepretation', it is detailed that the inside of her car is with 3 blue pedals - a clutch, a brake and an accelarator, oh plus a green steering wheel. Somehow, she's got shoes in the car (??). Oh, and she penned her name below her car so that "people will know that this is mine" ... well, no doubt about that!

ATC ~ The Cools

Made these for a swap via Malaysian Scrappers Society blog. Must apologise for the blah photos - it was deadline for mailing out these babies and the only chance I had to photograph this ... the weather is crummy. So anyway, I had fun playing with inks again, everything created from scratch (with use of inks and masking and reinkers and embossing, and so on), except the blue-green pattern paper (which I LOVE) from Autumn Leaves.

Some close-ups. But sheesh! I still hate how 'dreary' the colour looks with the crappy lighting.
Favourite foil heart colour (at this angle, at least).

Supplies - Inks: Adirondack Inkpads, Tim Holtz Distress Inkpads and Reinkers, Adirondack Alcohol Inks; Ranger Embossing Powders; Autumn Leaves pattern paper; Prima stamp; Bazzill Cardstock; Cuttlebug; Foil Tape.
