The notebook you can see here is a "Moleskine notebook". I stamped on it with Hero Arts clear stampset: CL333 What's cooking? Colored it with Derwent colorsoft pencils.

A couple of months ago I discovered the "Moleskine notebooks" at the Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. Imediately I got the idea of stamping on them. So, I bought a package of three kraft notebooks. There are other colors, but I thought the kraft ones are nice to stamp on. There's a little story about the history of these notebooks within the package. Here is a part of it: "Moleskine is the heir of the legendary notebook used for the past two centuries by great artists and thinkers, including Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin. This trusty, pocket-sized travel companion held their sketches, notes, stories, and ideas before they became famous images or beloved books. In his book "Songlines", Bruce Chatwin tells us the whole story of his favourite notebook, which he nicknamed "Moleskine"."

I enjoyed it stamping on them. There are two more on my flickr photostream!
