Spectacular Moleskine Doodles Explode with Energy - My Modern Met Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes proves that doodling can be so much more than scratching unintelligible scribbles on paper. Through his Sketchy Stories blog, Rosanes shares his wonderful world of doodling in a simple Moleskine sketchbook. Equipped with an ordinary Moleskine, a few Uni Pin drawing pens, and his innate gift for drawing, the artist is able to transport viewers to a world where tiny, cartoonish creatures explode with gusto to make up larger entities. Each of the illustrator's complex and crowded sketches are filled with minute details that allow the eye to wander and discover new characters and designs at every turn. The portraits are immediately mesmerizing, but even more spectacular when looked upon closely.

(If you try to embroider or sew beads onto regular pages in a book, the thread tends to pull right through the paper, if the thread is tugged.) You can do the same thing with your journal cover. Wax paper and art journals by aisling d'art ©2006 I use wax paper to separate damp art journal pages so that they don't stick together. Wax paper is inexpensive, very slightly porous (so the pages dry underneath), and easy to use. You'll find wax paper at the grocery store, in the aisle with foil and plastic (cling) wrap. When I'm separating journal pages with wax paper, I cut or tear the wax paper so that it's slightly larger--at least one-half inch--than the pages that I'm working with.
