IF : Alphabets


Yay...I finally christened my Moleskin! I was feeling very child-like and whimsical today so I thought I'd go for that style. Just loose and scribbly! I used acrylic paint, colored pencils and alphabet rubber stamps. In case you can't read it, here's what it says.


"What's good today?" I asked.

"We have really good duck soup with alphabets." she replied.

"Okay, I'll have that."


Who knows where my head was...but I know this makes me giggle!
