Where do I begin? I am trying out a Moleskine journal for the first time. I am a Moleskine virgin! As with using any art medium for the first time...there are always challenges. In this case…it is the thinness of the paper.
I already know that the paper in the Moleskine journal will probably support only graphite and colored pencil so I plan to use it just for pencil sketches. No ink! That was the plan but once I completed my pencil sketch, I felt that something was lacking and outlined it in ink. Well...guess what? It bled through to the other side! Anyway, I did what I usually do...I decided to go with the flow and let happen what may and deal with the issue later.
In the art world there is always a solution to a problem…right? Maybe a little gesso or gluing something over it? Or….maybe even gluing two pages together. What would you do? I would love to hear from you and learn how you deal with this issue.
Until next time!
