Kimberley's Moly - Almost Ready to Go!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you're having a lovely weekend! Its raining here in the UK, but I love weekends when I have a good excuse to curl up with a good book (currently I Remember You by Harriet Evans) or hide in my studio for the afternoon! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful morning with our niece when we visited the animals at the petting zoo too!

I've now finished my Moly with the circus theme, and its almost ready to head to the Netherlands to meet Eefje! I really hope you like it. It was done with Promarker pens (disappointed with the blend results - can see every pen stroke, nevermind) and acrylics. I had so much fun drawing and painting it!

Sorry for the pants photos - not such good quality from my Blackberry!

Eefje, I'll wrap this up and post it onto you after the weekend!

Can't wait to see your first entries!! I hope you've been enjoying doing them!

Lots of love,

Kimberley x

Yay!! Got my moleskine!!!

Yay!! I was so excited when I got it .. then I was like.. gee this is small!!! Nevertheless I am still excited and nervous about working in other people's books ;-)  But as the group leader said it will be a great learning experience.  As you can see I haven't started my sign in page yet, but plan on working on it in the next couple days.. I just want to land on one theme idea.. I have a couple swirling around right now :-)

Take care and happy drawing :)

First Moly Mail!

Yay, I received my moleskine notebook in the mail today - it's so cute! (although much smaller than I expected). I have a paper due tomorrow that I haven't started yet (woops) but after I finish that, working on my sign-in page will be my weekend project. I'm more or less decided on Underwater Creatures for my theme, but you never know what'll happen when I actually start drawing...maybe I was inspired by the rain we've been getting in New York recently, haha

In other news, Happy October!


Introducing ... ME!! ;-) Courtney

I am so excited to be a part of this moly group!! I have never done one before, but I have seen some really awesome stuff on flickr!  I cannot wait to see what everyone does and I must admit I am a bit nervous about my skills being up to par!! Already the first sign in page has a great person drawing.. that isn't my strong point, but I am certain I will come up with something within my drawing abilities :-)

A little about me - I'm Courtney Prudhomme - known in crafty circles as "cklnh", "Cajun Hillbilly", "Chickadeebijoux", "Louisiana Momma" lol.. I'm 36 yrs old.. I am a stay-at-home and homeschooling mom.. I have 1 husband, 4 kids (3 that live with us), 2 dogs, 1 bird, and 2 pygmy goats that I love :-)  Art truly is my passion.  I have done all sorts of arts and crafts over the years.. but my top favorites are hand embroidery, sewing, and NOW drawing :-)  In the drawing realm I mostly do zendoodles or zentangles.  I am trying to refine my drawing and shading skills :-)  Here are a few of my pieces that I am especially proud of:

This piece was done on an 8"x11" drawing paper with micron pen and pencil.

This piece is a 6" diameter circle.. It's called "My Grandmother's Garden"

This one is on a 9"x12" Sketch pad and is called "Inside of Me":

I am waiting on my moleskine to arrive and the moment it gets here I will be Doing my sign in page and posting it here.  I look forward to getting to know all of you and am so excited to see your talented work in my book :-)

Much love and God bless!!
