moleskine projects

poetry project #2 and #3: Hyde’s moleskine.

Alright, so this just happened: turns out, getting into character to write poetry about Jackie, and Hyde’s relationship with her, and work in the moleskine’s pages as if it was truly Hyde’s, gave me the idea of doing a couple of things that doesn’t fit into the original project, ‘Jackie on my Mind’.

~ Words For My Girl

This project is very simple. When I started working on Hyde’s moleskine, he wrote some random stuff that later became longer poems. Some are just really nice quotes that are too short to be a considered one of the 100 poems for Jackie, so I decided to give them their own space.

I will be posting them the same way the poems get posted, and also will show them on the pages. You will be able to find them under the tag: #words for my girl.

These little things are still words about Jackie.

~ Hyde’s moleskine

One of the better consequences of getting into Hyde’s character is having the chance to explore the other layers of his persona. The rest of his relationships are exposed in the moleskine, too. The heavy meaning of his mother treatement against him and her leaving occupays some space at the begining ot the notebook, and poetry appeared too.

This situation gave me another idea: to write about these other women in Hyde’s life, and situations that doesn’t fit in the original project. The moleskine end sup being some kind of poetry diary that expresses who Hyde is (or at lest, how I persive him).

In this one, you’ll read a lot about Edna and Kitty, and family matters. Later, about Angie and some more about family, and blood ties. There is also a long poem that talks about Hyde’s childhood and is not a nice thing, while there is another about a sleepover at Forman’s and some character studies that deepen a lot on Hyde’s self hatred and other things.

You’ll find those tagged as #hyde’s moleskine.

I finished my yearly, monthly, and half of my weekly log for my new bullet journal.

Tomorrow, I need to find something to fill up the other half of my weekly log. Then, I’ll start working on my daily log.

My most clever finished project would have to be my desk, which I made myself. It is my favorite place to write, read and create. My walls are more of an ongoing project. Day 19 of the April challenge by @journaling-junkie. ( I also have some close ups of my desk here.)

Yesterday my moleskine came in so I can start my French bullet journal! I’m gonna track my progress over the summer!

Hopefully I can get more comfortable doodling and improve my French at the same time! 🇫🇷📖✨

Hi everyone! I started a journal again this summer, and I thought I would share some tips and recommendations that I found useful:

Basic supplies:

  • Notebook // rec: moleskine (comes in many sizes and colours, but the acid-free paper tends to be thin and is not archival)
  • Pen // rec: muji black ink pen 0.38mm, staedtler permanent lumocolor

Supplies for more fun

  • Brush + Watercolours // rec: staedtler watercolor pencils (highly portable and a variety of colours)
  • Coloured pencils // rec: staedtler triangular coloured pencils 
  • Fineliners // rec: staedtler triplus fineliner, hema fineliners/fijnschrijvers
  • Glue stick or tape for putting in photos, tickets, etc, into your journal
  • Camera // rec: fujifilm instax (the instant film makes it really convenient, but you can also use your phone and print out the photos)

Tips:

  • Have your journal with you as much as possible - you never know when you’ll want to write, draw, or put something into your journal
  • Don’t worry if the pages aren’t ‘perfect’
  • Journals are perfect for collecting and drying plants 
  • Have fun!! - by @arthausgirl

Legend of Zelda Daily Doodles

Hi everyone! So I’ve been doing a daily doodle project which really gives me a little daily outlet in my life because it’s so busy and hectic. These are a few of the doodles. :) I’ve been super obsessed with Legend of Zelda lately! And the games have been keeping me busy too. OTL

These were done with watercolor, micron/copic pens, and white ink. (You can see some of the materials I work with in the 3rd picture. :D )

Enjoy!

–Laine-O

EDIT: I edited the post to just put the daily doodles not in the order I actually did them by date, but by the order that the games actually came out - Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Minish Cap, then Hyrule Warriors.
