Most of you know that aside from lettering, I do travel illustration on the side to keep my creativity going (on days I am not friends with letters, heh). And of course, I’ve always been open on sharing my materials of choice – only because I believe the best materials bring out your skills more.

I’ve already shared my thoughts on the Moleskine watercolor pad with this review –  but I’ll say this again, it’s still one of my favorite pads to use (not just for watercolor, even ink!). Maybe it’s magic? LOL. I’ve recently started using the medium sized one (A5) for my trip to Scandinavia last Christmas (photos above and below). Well, guess I’m not the only one – a few of my friends also have their Moleskines as part of their art arsenals. And of course, most artists do as well. :)Moleskine_4

Which reminds me, guess I have to finish that sketch so I can write about my trip asap. Hue hue.


Featured Artists

And since I’ve already shared my own watercolor journey (mostly on this blog), here are some insights from fellow watercolor artists Jamie, Kar & Vin – their respective art styles, the variety of work that they do with the medium, and why Moleskine pads are one of their go-to art tools for illustrating.

Jamie

Jamie Catt

  • Art style: I could only describe my work as whimsical (that mostly focus on animals and nature) – somewhat a mix between realistic and imaginative illustrations where it has its own world. I incorporate geometric shapes and patterns to my work because I’m into the combination of organic and structural compositions making it seem raw yet simultaneously clean and visually appealing.
  • Best thing about watercolor: I love how watercolors move around freely. That being said, I work with the flow and let the pigments and water interact naturally with each other. I do dabble with a lot of water and add layers and layers of paint into my works in order to achieve a saturated look. Sometimes I mix it with different mediums such as gouache and colored pencils to create a more solid and vivid illustration.
  • Best thing about the Moleskine pad: Its versatility. It’s not just great with watercolors but also with pen, ink and pencil. Plus the fact that it’s partially made of cotton, which makes it great for pigment absorption and doesn’t buckle easily even when you work with tons of water and layers of paint.

Kar

 Kar Victoriano

  • Art style: I do watercolor portraits and fashion illustrations. Im doing a series called #OOTDRAW where I draw almost everyone.
  • Best thing about watercolor: You get this organic effect on your painting. I love how the paint blends with the water and hopes for best result when it dries. It’s like you’re in control, at the same time you’re not – it’s challenging and fun.
  • Best thing about the Moleskine pad: I love Moleskine’s texture, compared to other watercolor pads I’ve tried. The texture isn’t “scale-y”, and it doesnt deform much if i use too much water.

Follow Kar on Instagram / Blog

Vin

Vin Quilop

  • Art style: I usually do portraits/faces of people (celebrities, people I look up to, random strangers), I’ve always been fascinated by the human emotions and I make sure that each work I do embodies the emotion I’m trying to portray.
  • Best thing about watercolor: I love experimenting with watercolor! It was once my most hated medium in making pieces but I recently just fell in love with it. Technically, I like mixing wet-on-wet with my dry brush technique.
  • Best thing about the Moleskine pad: There are a LOT of things I love about Moleskine’s watercolor pad but here’s one: the paper doesn’t “lump”. That thing that happens when you put almost too much water on the paper and some of it separates into small lumps until the paper thins out.

    I joined the very first Moleskine on the road workshop with Abbey Sy and Mikka Wee and inspired me to do more travel artworks aside from usual travel photography. There’s an included Moleskine from the workshop, but it would be nice when the paper is for watercolor itself to avoid those wrinkly paper if use watercolors or bleeding from my markers. :3 hihi If given the chance to win, I’ll definitely do more of my travel diaries there!

  5. Angela
    January 31, 2016 at 2:34 pm

    omg thank you Abbey Sy <3 if I were to win this moleskine, I will use it to improve on my watercolor skills since i'm still learning and use it whenever I travel to draw and paint the beautiful sights I'll be seeing. Also, when inspiration comes, I can easily pull it out and draw :)

  6. Aelen Ducao

    I would love to try the the Moleskine watercolor pad for my artworks! I’m new to watercolor painting and I would love to try it since the notebook that I have becomes really wrinkled when doing wet on wet, and I trust a recommendation from you Abbey Sy! :)

    Hi!, i’ve been a fan of how moleskin represents itself and how it relates to artists(us); which helps us express ourselves anytime by having a pad on their side, as for me, i’ve been keeping a lot of notebooks for my pop up ideas and illustrations just whenever i’m at, in office, coffee shop, i could always put my notes just a snap away, you could see some of my illustrations and pop up ideas(quotes, etc) on my instagram https://www.instagram.com/pseudoepic/ i’ll use moleskin to extend my creativity to a new slate, a slate that i believe stands for creativity, passion and expression. i’ll use it to share and inspire other people with my ideas and illustrations.

    I’ll be using this Moleskine pad to make more artwork and practice my styles in writing. I think it’s high time that I fuel myself this 2016 as I’m soon to graduate and push myself in what I really enjoy and love having to do. I would want to win for this very reason and nothing more.

    Hi Ms. Abbey!! I will take this oppurtunity to say thank you for inspiring me to take out the artistic feels I had in my body. I may not be that good as you but I’m trying my best to pursue this artistic sidr of mine. You’ve been achieving your goals lately and I wanna achieve mine too, so being you as my inspiration I know that I can achieve it. I’m really hoping to win this giveaway because I became depressed when I didn’t won last time but nah I’m happy to those people who won it means you helped them get out their artistic dreams with those giveaways just like what happened to me. I’m also hoping to meet you one day, maybe in one of your lettering class or just bump in to you anywhere. More powers to you Ms. Abbey!! Hehe 😍😘💞

    Gosh, it’s actually been some time since I’ve last done watercolor. Just recently I’ve been trying to get back into it because I wanted to get better at it! :))

    It would be suuuuuper awesome to get this watercolor starter kit, and even more because you’re one of my favorite artists 😍 Yass art forever 💕💕

    I always want to win any art supplies from an artist’s blog. I haven’t tried being a winner though. I hope this will be the time. I don’t know how to use watercolor yet but I’ll always be willing to learn with the help f Miss Abby’s work :) Thank you in advance!

    January 31, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    I’ve been window shopping a lot online scouting around for the most portable watercolor journal available in PH. I’ve found Monologue but I don’t think it’s of very good quality (I think?) as they say it’s best to start with high quality materials because you bring about the same quality in your results. The only other popular choice I saw was Moleskin which was a joy to find out but disheartening at the same time because it’s certainly not cheap and it requires a trip to Manila to get one of these babies. I’d love to win so I can finally kickstart my urban sketching / travel illustration practice with the Moleskin journals :)

  20. Arianne Marie V. Sarmiento
    January 31, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    If I win this Moleskine watercolor pad, I would use it for primarily for my watercolor paintings. I would also love to try it for Urban Sketching because I plan to try that art and also I also plan to travel this year. I want to win this Moleskin watercolor pad because I haven’t tried anything from the Moleskine brand, I use a different sketchpad for my watercolor paintings and as much as possible I want to try different kinds of watercolor paper for me to know what works best for me..

    I hope I could be one of the lucky winners. I am really into calligraphy. Most of my time are spent practicing calligraphy. I get inspiration and ideas from your book, The ABC’s of Handlettering. I hope to enhance more my knowledge.

  22. Maria Catrine Go
    January 31, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    I am hoping to compile my attempts to watercolor so that I can go back to every page and check on my progress. I am wishing to have this. :)

    I want to be able to enhance my drawing amd painting skills through the Moleskine watercolor pad. Since the pad is only small, I can carry it around with me and, just like Abbey Sy, I can draw the different things I see. I have always wanted to start a travel diary but I do not have the materials for it since most of the equipment is HELLA expensive. Especially Moleskine. So, I want to win this giveaway so I can improve on my skilss and fulfill my dreams of being a great artisit.

    After months and months of hesitating to buy your book, i finally gave in last Friday! I always thought that your type of creativity is something that’s unique to you only and that even if you write a book giving tips and techniques and all, we mere mortals won’t even come close to what you’re doing. But I am taking a shot and I really hope I learn a lot from your book! Your art works are amazing! Will bring my book so I can have it signed on the Love Calligraphy event on the 13th! :)

    I would like to use the moleskine pad to practice more on my watercolor skills because right now im srsly not satisfied with my works 😂 haha this pad will also be very useful when i want to paint on-the-go. Not also painting, i also draw anime and manga characters so i really want to try this pad :) i looked up on moleskine’s site and i found out how pricy this pad is and i dont have enough money to buy one since im only a student :))) ate Abbey, thank you for this giveaway :)))

    I have this very artistic friend who is in love with watercoloring, she introduced me to it although I haven’t had the time to try it yet. But as a return, and knowing that her birthday is nearing, I would love to give this as a gift to her especially it’s a giveaway from you, which she loved! (she bought your book and is happy about it!) She would definitely love to have it too! <3

    If I win this giveaway, I’ll be taking my brush lettering very, very seriously. I want to resolve my love-hate relationship with watercolor with this pad, because as you’ve said, there’s some magic going on around here (but really, maybe Moleskine will help me solve this long term love-hate relationship). I really, really want to win this giveaway because (1) I’ve never won before (like ever), and (2) Moleskine is a lil bit pricey for me and I really want to have one for my lettering.

  32. Dohna Balarias
    January 31, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    I’m into calligraphy and I’ve been trying to find a good quality of paper,aside from the vellum board I’ve been using, to practice and keep my daily work. Having the Moleskine watercolor pad, it would be convenient enough for me have my calligraphy stuff in one pad and it would be a great start as I am also learning the beauty of watercolor.

  33. Jee
    January 31, 2016 at 2:56 pm

    If I win a Moleskine watercolor pad, I’m going to use it to practice my watercolor skills! I’ve been dreaming to have a Moleskine ever since and this is a chance. I’m going to practice by drawing my travels on the Moleskine and proudly say that it’s from the one and only Abbey Sy. :)

  34. Recel Domingo
    January 31, 2016 at 2:56 pm

    I’ve always love art, from looking/seeing/discovering someone’s work to actually creating my own. I’ve always love how I am able to express my deepest self using art but unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to pursue art in college (i had to take up a pre-law program) buuuuuut!! as I turn 18 this february 1st, I vow to myself that I will not let my creative side disappear from my mind, my heart, my eyes and my hands which is why if I’m finally lucky enough to win this giveaway I will go and pursue/continue doing art no matter how busy college may get because through art, I will be able to release the academic stress I may feel.

    plus!! I suddenly had fallen for paintings (because of my humanities course), I had fallen so much that I want to make my own.

  35. Harriette
    January 31, 2016 at 2:58 pm

    im a huge fan of watercolor pads! if i win this giveaway, I’ll use it for my daily adventures and for my unexpressed thoughts. Aside from using a journal and my words, i also use watercolor pads and paint. I like creating art out of my miseries.

  36. Bella Fernandez
    January 31, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    If I win this set, I’ll use it to paint on the go! My watercolor sketchbook (which happens to be your Lettering Progress Keeper) is something I use for final output, and I have to make do with a thin-papered sketchbook that I got for Christmas for drafts. And while that one works like a charm, it’s simple too freaking BIG and HEAVY! So getting ahold of a compact Moleskine will let me sketch drafts on the go, the very purpose it’s made for! :)

  37. Narvy
    January 31, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Hello Ms. Abbey🤗
    If I win It will definitely encourage me practice harder my lettering,sketching and coloring skills ( still on the road to progress though ) & through its pages I can smile back at each work as I perfect especially my watercoluring.
    Had never been this inspired since I plunged again into my lost art skills.
    As they say…
    “Don’t Quit Your Daydream💕” and this Moleskin is one of
    ’em.

    Watercolor is my favorite medium! I love how you can experiment colors with it and I love how it’s so user friendly. I’ve been using different kinds of paper for my watercolor artworks, and so far watercolor only works best for some types of watercolor paper, and let’s all admit it, watercolor paper is a bit pricey. If given the chance, I’d love to use these moleskin watercolor pads and bring it anywhere with me so that I can also start illustrating my ventures! Thank you for the daily dose of inspiration Ms. Abbey Sy! ❤️

    I’m currently a med student and I’ve been wanting to try new hobbies and stress relievers despite the busy schedule and numerous exams! I’ve been thing about trying calligraphy, lettering and using watercolor for the longest time and I’ve been saving up for some art materials. Your posts make me really want to try the craft and that Moleskin pad would really help me start this hobby sooner! :)

  41. Ivy Chua
    January 31, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    Hi! I’ll use the Moleskine watercolor pad to practice more of my lettering/typography skills and also painting portraits and animals just like Vin and Jaime. I’ve been searching for a perfect pad that I can bring with me.

  42. Sam
    January 31, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    With this moleskine pad, I can become more creative in painting with the paper to paint on

  43. Danna
    January 31, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    If I win in this giveaway, I’ll use the Moleskine pad and the extra water color goodies to start a typography-slash-doodle journal. I’ve always wanted to try watercolor as medium but I do not have resources to begin with, can’t afford ’em hehe. Plus, a quality pad would help me be motivated to practice more and more.

  44. Ciarra Kristin
    January 31, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    I’ve joined the previous giveaway but unfortunately, I didn’t win. So I might as well try this one again. It would be a dream come true *literally* if I won the giveaway because I’ve always wanted one myself but then they’re to costly on my part as a student. If I ever win, I will use this for my art works. I will practice my craft there as well as I go to places :)

  45. Avrie
    January 31, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    I’m a huuuuge fan of Moleskine but I never really tried their watecolor pads. If ever I win, I’ll practice doing watercolor painting and typography even more seriously :)

  46. Roma Lopez
    January 31, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    Oh my god I am fangirling. I would love to win this giveaway because so that I can enhance my drawing a painting skills. I have also developed a liking for urban sketching and I believe that with the Moleskine watercolour pad, I can practice and practice to my heart’s content. Since it is a small pad, I can carry it around with me. I have always wanted to start a travel journal but my budget doesn’t allow me to do so. Also, I have always wanted to own a Moleskine notebook but it’s HELLA expensive. So, I want to win this giveaway to fulfill my dreams and one day, become like the amazing Abbey Sy.

  47. Joana Cruz

    This Moleskine watercolor pad will motivate me to continue my watercolor “journey”. Painting is one of my anxiety relievers. My fingers are crossed! :)

  48. Kris
    January 31, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    As a watercolor artist, I need this. I am by no means a profesional but I am still learning in the process. My parents don’t support me much with things related to art and if ever I get my hands on this I can practice more with a better medium and hopefully encourages me more to pursue art despite of discouragements. Also I’m going to cry Nile River if I win this cuz it’s from Abbey Sy ~ > u <

  49. Chrissete
    January 31, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    I would love to win the Moleskine watercolour pad! This would be a great way for me to practice wherever I am, especially in between my law classes. Art had alway been my greatest “therapy.” It would be a super great bonus if I win them from one of my most fave local artists!

  50. Charles Francisco
    January 31, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    I use old notebooks for my sketches/paintings. I would like have a watercolor pad from Moleskine. I will use it for my watercolor paintings and i’ll improve my skills at it .Hope to win, GOD BLESS Ms. Abbey!

  51. Gabby
    January 31, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    I want to practice watercolor but I’m always out all the time and I can’t bring my materials with me wherever I go because I have such a big pad. This would help me solve that since it’s small and lightweight. This would be a good compilation for my works and at the same time see my progress :) I hope I win, please? Hehe.

  52. Merriam
    January 31, 2016 at 3:22 pm

    Hi Ms. Abbey, it would be such a great honor to win a giveaway from you, you’ve been such an inspiration to me and i’ve been trying all tips in your book, so if I would win a moleskine pad i would definitely be more than happy to improve calligraphy/typography in there, since I’m a beginner. ☺️

  53. Hannah Dacanay
    January 31, 2016 at 3:23 pm

    Hi abbey! I am such a fan! I am also an artist I hope you could take a liok at then too and I hope to meet you! Cheers for more art! :)

    If I win this Moleskine watercolour album,I will use it as my TRAVEL diary ” #Sanneventures”,I will illustrate and render all the places that I’ll visit using my favorite watercolor and caption it using my zig calligraphy Pens.And also it will serves as my Sketch pad for my architectural works. This is going to be my handy dandy illustration album and additional to my Sketch notebook collection.

  56. Jesh Orquina
    January 31, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    If I win, I will use the pad to express all my thoughts and my wildest dreams through watercolor painting and lettering. I want to win because I really wanna improve my art skills, something I have neglected in the past. Expressing myself through art has always been my passion so it would really be nice if I got to win. :)

  57. Alyssa Stuart
    January 31, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    If I win this Moleskine pad, I will use this to practice brush lettering and calligraphy and try my hand in watercolor floras/wreaths. I also want to win this pad because Moleskine pads/notebooks are amazing and as you said they have magic in them ha ha so winning this would probably help me become better in art 🙈

  58. Patricia Ingente
    January 31, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    omg I really want the moleskine pad. It’d be amazing to practice my watercolor skills on there. Plus, moleskine is my fave brand and it’d be cool to share my artworks using that pad!

  59. Sonny Justine Quillopas
    January 31, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    I will use the Moleskine pad to enhance my skills in lettering (and hopefully in painting too) with watercolors. I’ve just discovered my love for watercolors recently. And tonight, I’m planning to post a “mini business” offer to my IG followers and FB friends. I want to help them express their messages for their friends and/or loved ones in a creative way. I want to win because another addition to my art weapons means one additional step for me to turn my art passion into my dream business :)

  60. Jelai Melencio
    January 31, 2016 at 3:33 pm

    I love love love using watercolor but I haven’t had the chance to use watercolor paper. First, it’s really hard to come by in our area. Secondly, it’s a bit pricey for a student with no mode of income. Anyway, I’ve been practicing my drawing and calligraphy and brush lettering religiously but I just don’t have (the time and money to buy) the right materials. Winning this giveaway would really be a great help to improve my skills. :) Oh, and I know that you’re a fan of Pride and Prejudice so if you haven’t watched the movie Austenland, you really should. Best wishes! ♥

  61. AJ Villamar
    January 31, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    I’ve been eyeing Moleskine notebooks since I learned about their existence but I can’t buy one for myself because they’re a bit pricey for a student (who has a lot of expenses, thanks to college) like me. That’s why I’m hoping to win this giveaway! I’m learning slowly and bit my bit, process by process and patience over patience the art of watercolors in my own little ways. I think having this kind of watercolor pad would be a great help with my art frustrations (and for the improvement of my works). Thank you for another giveaway, Ms. Abbey! :)

  62. Nicolette
    January 31, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    When I finally get to own my own Moleskine watercolor pad (I’m full on claimin’ it), I will journal my year and the goals I’ve surpassed. 2016 is going to be a big year with big dreams and having a dependable, quality art journal to see me through will be the cherry on the sundae.

  63. Leah Cantos
    January 31, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    I have always been a huge fan of collecting different sketch pads, planners, and journals to write down my ramblings along with my illustrations. I would really love to have moleskin watercolor pad, for me more pleasure and excitement is added when i know I’m working on a surface as good as moleskin’s.

    I would like to win this Moleskine watercolour pad to record my travels and capture realities in my own picutresque ways. Coupled with the mighty pocket watercolor, I will use it to craft stories that will, hopefully, open the eyes of people on the subject of the different stories I’d painted.

    Hi, Abbey! Thanks for the watercolor tips!

    I would love to use Moleskin watercolor pad for practicing my urban sketching skills. I always love to develop that skill of painting just what you see. Recently, I just started using watercolors which started from brush calligraphy then discovering basic watercolor techniques then seeing these urban sketchers (including you!) really inspire me to practice.

    I would love to win because you rave about the Moleskin watercolor pad and when I check how much are them in the stores, they are a bit steep for me :( So hopefully, I could just win one from you.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    If I win this moleskine, I’ll use it as a journal. I’m always at school and sometimes my hand is itching to draw something and practice, the size of this moleskine is very great for traveling. I want to win because I want to try and improve my drawing + watercolor so I’ll use this to practice my art journaling skills :)

    January 31, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    I’ve been inspired by your work that I started to practice on my hand lettering, if ever I won *fingers crossed* in this giveaway, the Moleskin pad will give me more more reasons to work on and improve my new found love which is calligraphy and brush lettering and let my creative juices flowing. Thank you, Ms. Abbey. :)

    Like what you’ve said, “best materials bring out your skills more.” And I believe in the same thing. Using quality materials provides a better art experience, as well as a better result. Now, as for me, I am quite new to the art scene. Sure I did draw during free times, but I didn’t take it much seriously until recently. I’m currently exploring the watercolor medium and through research, I’ve always come across artists that recommend Moleskine. I was excited upon this new knowledge until I found out about the price in the nearest bookstore, and stocks are very limited so there isn’t much choices.

    I’m a college student by the way whose constantly torn between buying the next book or an art material every time I enter the bookstore (with enough money, that is.) I thought it would be great and inspiring to try such material of good quality. Then there you are, being generous enough to start a give away.

    I’m a hopeful.

  72. Angeli Velasco
    January 31, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    I totally agree when you said that best materials bring out the skills more. Quality over quantity. It maybe a little expensive but it gives you the drive to improve the skill. It’s being smart resourceful. That is why I would love to have that Moleskine Watercolor Pad! Wooo! Haha! Crossing my fingers! More powers, Abbey! :)

  73. Mervin de Vera
    January 31, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    If I win moleskine I’ll give it to my girlfriend because she really wants this. And it would be my honor to thank you guys if I win this raffle.

    January 31, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    I want to win a moleskine notepad since I’m into watercolor calligraphy too. I like to experiment on different mediums using moleskine and I’ve always wanted to have one. Hopeful to win this giveaway!

    January 31, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    Hi Abbey!
    I’ve always admire you works of art both lettering/calligraphy, travel illustrations and watercolor. It gives me the urge to keep on practicing my art skills. Your travel illustrations really inspires me it made me want to do that also when visiting different places. Your art never fail to put a smile on my face with both excitement and amazement. I really hope that I would win this giveaway contest of yours. So that I could enhance my skills that I have right now. I’ve been hunting through onlineshops to find the right tools to use but then your giveaway appeared and this is the perfect thing to join cause it is of course recommended by you. Hope you would choose me! Thank you for the inspirations and your contribution to the Artist World. 😘❤️😍☺️😊

  76. Khervin John Gallandez
    January 31, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    As a striving artist, being here in the province (9-10 hours travel time from Manila) there is not enough resources of good art materials here in Ilocos. Unlike in Manila which you can just go and visit the store. Choosing online shops only add a high rate of delivery charges. If I will be able to win the moleskine, I will use it to illustrate the beauty of my city through traveling. Instead of saying I love moleskine, I would be grateful if i will have the opportunity to win the materials somehow to use it and continue my art journey here in the province..
    Thank you.

  77. Maxine Lim
    January 31, 2016 at 3:57 pm

    Like you, I want to travel a lot and discover new things. With this moleskin watercolour pad, I hope to document my experiences and illustrate the sites I see when I travel. I never want to forget the best moments of my life. Ever since I was a child I loved making artworks with watercolour paints; however, I have never had the best materials to practice it with. With this giveaway that I hope to win, I would be able to improve my skills in watercolour and also document those special moments in my life.

  78. Carl Louis Alvior
    January 31, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    If ever I win a Moleskine watercolor pad, I would spend my time practicing my watercoloring skills, especially watercolor brush lettering! I’ve been looking for a watercolor pad ever since I started this kind of art practice, but when I bought one (my first watercolor pad) it sucked big time. I can’t paint properly because it dries very quickly. So if I win this giveaway, I can improve my skills and be better at it!

  79. Jusmine Idioma
    January 31, 2016 at 4:00 pm

    Im using different papers when I’m doing my work, but I like to use moleskine water color pad to do my final work and I like to compile my work with this kind of paper. Ps. This is my first time to join a contest like this, So I’m hoping to win! :) Thank you Ms. Abbey Sy

    January 31, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    if win this moleskine, I’ll use it for my urban sketches because it’s too mainstream and I really wanna try it and know how does it fill like. I’m also an achitecture student so basically, moleskine would be a great use for my sketches. :) Moleskine is a bit pricey for me so I am really hoping I could win this :)

  82. Krista De Leon
    January 31, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    I want to win this guvaway be ause I would want to be able to try out the moleskin pad to develop and also learn new watercolor and iluustration techiniques :) and I also want to keep a travel diary :)

  83. Mikaela German
    January 31, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    I was always a frustrated artist, this Moleskine watercolor pad might help me with the process. Also, your works inspire me. Someday I wish to turn this notebook into an art piece journal like yours. :)

  84. Mikaela Nicole
    January 31, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    There is nothing more perfect than a moleskine pad to partner up with me, a self proclaimed stationary geek, calligraphy aspirant, and a girl who just loves to paint. I am itching to fill in those blank pages with my adventures, thoughts, and doodles. It is every artsy person’s NEED, not want. :)

  85. Elaine Formeloza
    January 31, 2016 at 4:09 pm

    Personally, I have been dreaming of having a Moleskine watercolorpad eversince I learned about it. I would use it to improve my drawing style and practice my watercolor skills. I really love Moleskine’s design so much and it would be nice to have one for my personal use 😊

  86. Mark Mendoza
    January 31, 2016 at 4:09 pm

    I had always wanted to try out Moleskine’s watercolor pad! If ever I do win this one, it would probably be used for everyday sketches. I have this personal project where I must draw something each day, having something compact would definitely encourage me to just flip it out and draw. I might even begin to bring out the watercolors again…I kind of miss painting with them hahahaha.

  87. Naomi Torrecampo
    January 31, 2016 at 4:11 pm

    I’ll use this Moleskine pad as an art journal, something where I can illustrate my ideas and just to express myself through drawing and painting. I want to win because I have never used a Moleskine for my drawings before and I would love to use one, and I think it would be a good opportunity for me to improve my skills.

  88. Agatha

    If I win, I’ll be using it as my personal journal and progress keeper. One of my goals this year is to jot down and maybe illustrate creative ideas. It would be really nice to win something for once 😁

  90. ENRICO
    January 31, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    I’ve been so inspired by your watercolor painting snaps using your Moleskine journal so much. If I ever win this giveaway, I’ll use it like a diary where I’ll dump all my feelings and other unexplainable emotions as a form of art. I’ve been wanting to own an art journal since last year because large sketchpads aren’t suited for traveling (for me,hehe.) I really do hope I’ll win this one, instead of using the back pages of my notebooks, why not use this one instead? :—)

  91. Roselle Dancel
    January 31, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    If I win the Moleskine, I will use it not to document travels, but to document milestones of my son :) Taking photos is always good, but creating art and memories to pass on to my son is priceless :)

  92. Julie Lyn Seinna
    January 31, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    If I win a moleskine watercolor pad, I’ll use it for my drawings and watercolor art. I’ll be able to try another type of pad and if I loved it, I will surely invest on moleskin too. :)

  93. Chrislia Cruz
    January 31, 2016 at 4:24 pm

    I really want to start learning on how to do calligraphy and other artworks using Moleskine. I know that this brand would help me more in practicing different skills using my hands. I honestly am admiring the works you’ve already made and will make in the future and hopefully someday, I can be just like you. I would also like to share this pad with my bestfriend since we both love and willing to learn different skills on calligraphy. I would be the happiest to share the news to my friend if ever you’ll get to choose me :) Thank you Abbey for being an inspiration.

  94. Mayee Barredo
    January 31, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    This Moleskine will be perfect for documenting my good days, bad days, adventures, and even mundane moments. This 2016, I promised myself more traveling and creativity, and this Moleskine is perfect for documenting those 2016 memories in case I win the giveaway. I also want to win the giveaway because Moleskines are not available in my city, Iloilo City. I can’t imagine a better way to obtain than to win this wonderful giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity and thank you in advance in case I do win this! :)

    Hi, Abbey! What an awesome giveaway thank you and to Moleskin Philippines!
    If I’d be lucky to win this, I would use it as my journal and also use it as a practice notebook for my watercolor painting skills. haha.
    It will be an excellent addition to my journal/notebook collection (I’m a hoarder it’s bad). I have never had a moleskin before because I can’t afford it (subtext: I’m just too kuripot to buy one. HAHAHA!). I really do hope I win this. May the Rafflecopter gods work in my favor! mehehehe. To my co-participants, good luck to all of us.

    I’ve ventured into the world of watercolors recently and I’m looking for ways to improve my “skills” without hurting my wallet. 😂 Anyway, winning this giveaway means a lot to me and to my future in this area. 😄😄😄

  97. Mhane Olis
    January 31, 2016 at 4:33 pm

    Ate Abbey, hello po! I just wanna say thanks for having me in one of your lettering workshops! And by the way, I wanted to snag one of the Moleskine watercolor pads because (1) it’s too expensive so I can’t afford one, and (2) it’s very handy for all the handlettering projects that come to mind. Thanks!

  98. Faithe Z. Mitra
    January 31, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    First of all, I would like to say thank you! You really inspire me a lot, you inspire me to do better each day.

    I belong in a broken family, and I ease the depression by simply creating artworks. We have no money to buy such materials but since I am very passionate with my talent, I saved up for a blank journal,cheap coloring materials, and a few tech pens. I’ve gone through a lot of failures and they motivate me to be better. Considering that I belong in a broken family,my mom did not really support me in this case and so she told me to stop buying ‘useless stuff’ and buy the necessities instead, but that was before. I believe that she’s proud of me today, and that’s because of you. You never fail to inspire me, you’re really talented!❤❤ So if I win this giveaway, I will use the moleskin pad & watercolors to hone my craft further, draw any inspiration out there and treasure it the way you do! I will explore my limits and promise myself that I can succeed just like what you did. More power to you!

    January 31, 2016 at 4:39 pm

    If I were to win the Moleskine watercolor pad, I’d use it to start doing/practing my own version of travel illustration. Your works have sparked my interest on travel illustration, and I’d love to use Moleskine and give it a try. Thank you Abbey!

    I have always been an art enthusiast since a little girl but unfortunately because of other things I had to set my priorities towards, I slowly lost my passion for the arts and forgot even the most basic of things. I wanna win in hopes of not just being able to go back to what I loved, and still do, but to improve and exceed even my own expectations of doing artwork. :)

    I will use the moleskine pad to start studying and trying a new medium which is the watercolor. Honestly, watercolor is the medium I’ve been dying to try ever since I started in the art industry. I want to win this giveaway because I’m sure these starter packs will surely help me grow as a beginner :)

    Hello! Lately I’ve been obssessed with notebooks and journals and sketchpads (lol). As a highschool student, I’ve been saving for college, and I don’t think I can afford Moleskin products these days, but I want one so bad because of all the things I’ve seen in your posts and blogs haha. Plus I’ve been wanting to practice my skills on them so it would be a great kickstart for a lot of things :–)))

  107. Renz Mae Del Rosario
    January 31, 2016 at 5:01 pm

    First of all, I would like to win this giveaway so that I can hone my watercolor skills using these packages. I’m going to use the moleskine pad to compile my works in a kind of high-quality paper that will not ruin my works. :)

  108. Aaliyah
    January 31, 2016 at 5:02 pm

    I will use it for doing letterings and also painting the landscapes that I draw. I surely want to win this so I can place all of my painted landscapes and letterings in it. I can’t buy one for myself so I hope I could win. 😀
    Your works inspires me, Ms. Abbey!

  109. Ivy Lalu
    January 31, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    I would use it to practice even more. It’s nice to see how different brands of paper work and to see which one would work best for me. It’s going to really help me get work done and my creativity active when i go to places. Thanks for this giveaway, Abbey!

  110. Angelica
    January 31, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    This year I want to be more creative and to show my artistic side. Now, I’m practicing calligraphy using an ordinary pen and paper (‘Cause materials are too expensive and I don’t have enough money to buy it–still a student Haha). Winning this Moleskine watercolor pad might help me improve my skill. I’ll use it as a journal and a progress book, it’s a good way to practice my love in art. Hope to win ’cause I really want to fill my 2016 with creativity.

  111. Alea Kim
    January 31, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    I really, really want to win the watercolor pad because I’m looking for a good quality watercolor paper. And I really need it for me to practice on for I will be passing a portfolio in a college of fine arts. Knowing that Moleskin is pretty pricey and I can’t just find it anywhere, I’ll be taking this chance. Hope to win your giveaway. Thank you miss Abbey. 💕😭

  112. cyril
    January 31, 2016 at 5:20 pm

  113. Anton

  114. Yas Liamco
    January 31, 2016 at 5:29 pm

    I’ve always loved watercolor, but its always been a struggle because both watercolor paint and watercolor paper are quite expensive. Nonetheless, I’m always trying to find ways to practice watercolor because it’s really one of my favorite mediums to use. If blessed with the Moleskine watercolor pad, I’ll definitely utilize it and create as much art as I can! I’d love to be able to draw all the wonderful things around me! Thank you for sharing you work to the world. You’re such an inspiration, Abbey! ☺

  115. Nissan
    January 31, 2016 at 5:30 pm

    Owning a Moleskine has always been a dream of mine but unfortunately, I can’t afford one. Since this one works well with watercolor and other inks, I would be very happy to win one as I have started dabbling in watercolor the past few months. Thanks for being inspiring and generous, Ms. Abbey!

  116. Hannah
    January 31, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    I’ve been wanting to start my own art journal to document my journey in calligraphy, watercolor and lettering. I want to win this because it can help me improve my craft. Moleskine serves as a motivation as well because of the quality it brings-it makes you want just keep on writing or painting.

  117. Ellen Cabarles
    January 31, 2016 at 5:36 pm

    Hi there! Your artworks are really great and of course the featured artists as well. I follow you on Facebook and I really think you are talented on that art career of yours. Keep it up! ☺

    Well, I never owned any Moleskine product before so trying my luck here to win it because it’s a watercolor pad! Haha and I am recently into watercolor arts. I will be placing everything art that comes in my mind, random thoughts, “like for day” (things you like for a short term), doodles and others so I won’t forget them. I want to have something that I can look to from time to time and make me smile because these artwork stories are kept in one place and never forgotten.

  118. I-za
    January 31, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    Moleskin pad has the best watercolor paper that make everyone’s artistic side grow and you, Abbey literally gave us also that. Thank you for inspiring me by posting your art projects whilst the stress I got at school. Your works are stress-reliever. ☺️

  119. Myle
    January 31, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    A friend of mine gave me a new set of watercolors for Christmas and if I ever win this, it will be a perfect match with those color tubes so yay! Been working with watercolor for a while and IT IS kind of upsetting when your sheet can’t handle the amount of liquid so this Moleskine Watercolor Pad is really just perfect! My fingers are crossed for this giveaway! Thank you, forever idol, Abbey for this chance 😊

  120. Ivan Bueno
    January 31, 2016 at 5:48 pm

    The only way I can voice out my emotions and thoughts is through art. I’m just a mere beginner in art but I find it HUGELY INTERESTING. People never saw the creativity planted inside me, but I do. I don’t even have ample amount of money to invest on my art skills. That’s why I’m taking giveaways like crazy! And through this Moleskine Pad, I’d work hard on sharpening my skills and using my talent to be a good influence and to help people who needs it. I’ve always looked up to your art Abbey, and winning this Moleskine pad might just turn my dreams into real creativity pages. I hope this is my time to win. Love you!

  121. Mylaine
    January 31, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    I’ve started getting back into drawing again when my friends and I joined in on the Inktober party. I found it hard to do traditional since I’ve always relied on my ol’ Wacom tablet so I’d like to get used to watercolor and ink more. Thank you for doing a giveaway! ^^

  122. Marie Isabella Oropesa
    January 31, 2016 at 6:14 pm

    I have been saving money to buy myself a moleskine pad since I started following your journey but it’s just very expensive. Winning in this giveaway would be the most wonderful, wonderful, woonderful gift! Not to mention the prices would come from you, PLUS! a watercolor set! I(I mean c’mon!!) This would really push me to create more artworks to share with people :) If ever I win this giveaway, may I send you via mail the artwork I’ll be doing on the first page of moleskine pad? Thanks Abby for this amazing giveaway :)

  123. Marie Isabella Oropesa

    January 31, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    I’ve been eyeing a Moleskine watercolor pad since God knows when here in my province but they really don’t have available one. And as a person who usually just stay here in my province, I can’t afford to go to Manila just to buy one. I only paint using my cheap watercolor tubes on a paper pad which almost has the same texture as a watercolor pad. So if I win this one, it’ll definitely give me joy! So yeah, fingers crossed!

  125. April Joy Sanchez
    January 31, 2016 at 6:36 pm

    I am starting to do a hand lettering project and I would like to put my works on that notebook. i am living in a province far away from cities that no such thing as watercolor paper or even just a good quality of paper available and winning is such a great oppurtunity to have one. Also Moleskin is kinda expensive that no one even of my fairy good mother wanted to buy that for me.

  126. Pinky
    January 31, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    I’m a newbie at watercoloring so I’ll use it to practice my florals! :)

  127. Shannelle
    January 31, 2016 at 6:48 pm

    I’ve always adored Moleskine. It’s, like, the Holy Grail of all notebooks. As a kid, I’d wander over to the section with all the Moleskine notebooks and stare at them for a very long time, hoping to own one, even though I knew my mother would say no. In fact, she would still say no now, telling me that it would be impractical to get one because of the price. And in a way, I do understand her point. Besides her barely-there toleration of me playing around with watercolor and lettering, I’m not that good at this that I do, of being worthy of a Moleskine notebook.

    But at the same time, I still want to own one, for the little me who was in total wonder over those notebooks and why they cost so much. I would really like to find the answer to that, to see the quality and worth of a Moleskine notebook for myself.

  128. Regina Joyce de Jesus
    January 31, 2016 at 6:51 pm

    I’ve always wanted a moleskine watercolor pad eversince 2013, the year that I entered one of the most prestigious architecture schools in the Philippines. I never had one because it’s too expensive for a student like me. Given a chance to win this giveaway, I will use my moleskine watercolor pad to practice travel illustration. This giveaway is so timely since I just received a new set of watercolor and brushes from my mom, moleskine’s watercolor pad will surely complete the set! Wishing everyone the best from this giveaway and more power to Abbey Sy and her team. ❤️

    Truth be told, I’m still looking for the right materials to fully expose myself in the world of lettering and calligraphy. Last year I made it clear to myself that I’ll pursue lettering no matter what happens. And it’s what I’m doing today to make my year more productive. I’d use the moleskin pad to practice on, especially with using watercolour. Though I don’t mind experimenting with brush pens, I don’t have them yet. They’re a story for another adventure. Right now all I want to go with is practicing myself with my brushes and markers. And I think that journal could be a key that could keep me away from using sheets of paper with the gsm that happens to be fit for watercolor.
    I want to win because, I don’t know. It excites me to have a new medium to tackle. All I’ve ever used so far are Oslo papers, corrugated papers, and special papers. I still haven’t found a watercolor pad yet, and the Lettering Progress Keeper is nowhere in my grasp as of now. I think it would be fun to win a contest once in a while, too. Besides, if I win this, I have something new to use. I do like new stuff.

    Drawing and watercoloring is a part of me. It’s my sense of escape. And I may not be as pro as the artists featured in your entry but as you say, practice makes progress. Definitely want Moleskine to be a part of my progress!

    I want to win this giveaway because I’ve been practicing watercolor for quite sometime and I want it to change things up a bit.. I wanted try to watercolor some locations and wonderful views that I have been seeing with my own eyes. Trying to do a lot of new things in this year, 2016. And it started with some color :) Hopefully I could win this giveaway :)

    I love your giveaway. :) I was looking for this moleskin pad for a very long time but has no luck of finding one. If I win, I’d use it for my lettering and watercolor painting practices. I love watercolor. I have started using it as my main painting medium two years ago and then I fell in love with lettering as well because of your works. I’d really love to improve on my lettering and integrate painting with it through the help of a great tool like a portable watercolor pad of this quality.

    Thank you so much and keep on creating! Love your stuff! :) <3

    Hey, Abbey Sy! 😊 I would LOVE to win the one of the Moleskine Watercolor Pads and paint because ever since I attended one of Googly Gooeys’ Watercolor Workshops, I used the Prang Watercolor Set they gave for attending the workshop ever since because I always wanted to develop my skills and talents in watercolor. Unfortunately, I am running out of watercolor because I use it everyday! The watercolor pad would REALLY help me because until now I still use my cheap & “not-thick-and-nice-paper” which doesn’t make my artworks look like what I want it to look like (Beautiful!🎨). Thank you for this wonderful oppurtunitty and for always inspiring me, Abbey Sy! 😊

    Always Creating,
    ♡Mika♡

    I’ve faced my fear of watercolor recently and learned to love it a little more. I’d love to have a watercolor pad that can keep up with me and my beginner skills at the medium. (I tend to oversoak the paper orz)

    Hey Abbey! 😄 I would really really like to win this giveaway because I need to enhance my skills in drawing and especially in lettering/calligraphy with the use of the tools included in your giveaway. I am an aspiring illustrator and designer as well because since I was a little child, it’s my dream to have my own art exhibit and also to share my creativity to others and inspire them to venture in arts and design if I succeeded. If I’m going to have your giveaway, I will use it not just for myself but for others too. Thanks Abbey and keep inspiring the youth! 😉

    Mars, tagalog na lang ha.

    Bet ko talaga yang moleskin. Nagcollect pa nga ako ng stickers ng SB kaso di ako umabot. Ang mahal kasi kaya di rin maka buy. Pero bet ko talaga. If mag win ako dito sa pa bongga mong pa contest, I’ll try to ~ahrt~ myself. I wanna try painting too. Nakaka inspire pala kapag napapaligiran ka (at least online) ng mga art people. Hindi lang basta art people, pero yung magagaling talaga like you and Vin (omg gwapo niya haha). Ayun lang naman. Saka mahilig din ako magsulat sulat minsan ng mga notes notes at quotes from nababasa ko. Ayun pwede ko din sulatan yaaan. Haha. Try lang to mars.

    Congrats and goodluck!!!! :*

    I’ve started doing calligraphy artworks just last year and I’m really having fun discovering different fonts and medium to try on but one medium that I really love using is watercolor because the colors blend nice and smooth giving that certain pop on my work. Hope I’ll get this one and oh this would be my first try hope to see you in person Abbey. You’re such an inspiration for us who loves arts and crafts. Artsy by heart. 💜💜💜💜💜

    Hi Abbey! It was a struggle for me to find the art form fit for me to express myself and after discovering the therapeutic effect of painting, I ventured into watercolor painting (it was easily the only medium that I could afford haha). I’ve been in love with watercolor as an art medium and I’ve gotten myself into learning calligraphy as well after I purchased your book. Having quality materials like Moleskine pads, among others would really be lovely for me to practice my art.

    P.S. I would have met you in Trinoma for your book signing since I was in Manila then (I’m from Iloilo). Unfortunately there was a conflict with the schedule of the Threenity party (1D & 5SOS, hello!) and I ended up staying in SM North Edsa instead. Someday, I’ll have my book signed! :)

    I really would like to win this pad because of its high quality paper. I want to use this to explore more of my skills. I believe in the magic that it could bring in my works. I know I can perform better with Moleskin. Also, since it is versatile, I can as well use it not only when I am painting but also when I do letterings/calligraphy. Thank you for this opportunity ate Abbey 💓

    If i get to be the lucky duck to be chosen to snag these goodies i would really love to use it and bring out my inner frustrated artistic side (despite being a lefty i wasnt that talented enough hahaha). But, I would gladly just give this to my bf sister who is an artist in the making and i have seen her work and i know she has it in her with more practice and support i know she can grow more and giving her this may inspire her more to draw out her inner talent.

    I started doing calligraphy just last year during the start of the school year and as the months pass by, I saw how I improved, and I think that I’d be using the moleskine pad for just practicing and for font studies and for drafts. I honestly want to win because I absolutely love moleskine (but I don’t have one huhu sad life) and that using that kind of quality of a pad is just an honor to have. (I love the quality of moleskine like omg :((( )

    I’m going to use it for watercolor! I recently got in touch with paint again and I’m loving it! I love moleskine, I have their planner, why not their watercolor pad too?

  160. Arleen
    January 31, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    I’ll be using it for my travel illustration…something I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time. Been planning to get this particular pad I’ve been nagkukuripot lately since this is kinda pricey. . Hoping to win this though 😊

    Since then I love to do mini watercolor art piece and some letterings. The moleskine water color pad will help me to improve my skills and this is a wonderful opportunity for me to have one because who doesnt want a watercolor pad which is not lumping when you put so much water at syempre branded diba? Syempre you will feel na you’re a great artist beacause you’re using a good brand of paper hahaha. But I wish I can win this giveaway not just I want to but you, Ate Abbey inspires me alot at ang galing-galing mo lang talaga. Thanks for this giveaway. :)

    Eventhough I’m not that good at sketching I still want to learn and practice so that I can be as creative as Ms. Abbey Sy. This Moleskine pad will be my guide to being more creative. I will use this as my practice pad until I have improved my skills. :)

    I want to win because for once in my life, i’d like to try using a Moleskine pad (and experience its magic!). I don’t want to buy one because it’s pretty expensive but i always long for it every time i buy a pad (sketch/watercolor) huhu. I’ve always liked drawing since i was young. As a college student, i write and draw to de-stress and to free myself from all the technicalities of the engineering world. If i win one, i’ll make sure that every precious page is used fruitfully. <3

    I would like to win this not for myself, but for my friend. He is very passionate in lettering and calligraphy. He practices almost every day and he deserves something as nice as this. I know that he’ll be even more inspired to strive harder in his endeavor as a letterer, typographer, and a calligrapher if ever he gets this. I wish him the best. :)

    Hi! First of all, I just wanna say thank you for being an inspiration. Just like you, I’ve been a constant best-in-penmanship awardee during my grade school days, a class secretary until high school, and a lover of hand lettering. I’m currently taking up architecture but I’m a frustrated advertising arts student. I fell in love with architecture but I never forgot my first love (which is hand lettering). But because of my (VERY) demanding course, I overlooked my passion for hand lettering; got really busy with plates and other stuff. I would really like to win this giveaway because ever since I knew about you and your craft, I started stalking you (hehe) and it has inspired me to never stop doing the things that I love to do. I bought your book and Lettering Progress Keeper. It was a good start for me. I practiced and practiced and practiced… Now, it’s my stress reliever/therapy whenever I’m stressed with plates and other school works. So yes, I would really LOVE to win a Moleskine watercolor pad!!! I’ve included this on my Christmas wishlist but I guess it’s never too late for Christmas!! (Be my Santa please huhu) Hope to win this time! And I’m really looking forward to finally meeting you in person!! Love, Calligraphy, yes? <3

    Hello Abbey Sy! aka an inspiration that I can always move forward and get through any dramatic artist block and frustration. :)

    I still remember back in kindergarten that whenever there was a requirement for coloring materials, watercolor was and always will be a part of the school supplies list. I’ve ventured to many mediums in my 17 years of living so far. From drawing, watercolor, acrylic, oil (gosh I hate oil) , watercolor pencils, and markers of every kind that were the source of my savings going kaput. Hahaha. But nevertheless, I never did regret any of my spendings when it comes to art.

    Due to frustrations and insecurities especially when I see better artists’ works it often ends up to a hiatus that has no end. To put it simply I stop because I think, I’m not good enough and I never will be. However, in the middle of 2015 something sparked in me as I saw dozens of posts that were about calligraphy and watercolor. I used to practice lettering in 3rd year it died down and then reemerged in 4th year then the first sem of college. For the past 4 months I’ve never lost the itch to paint or to write. Heck my twitter bio says ink and paint hahah. But enough of that. I want to win the giveaway as a motivation and maybe even a little push and strength to keep moving forward, to keep learning and not stop this time around. I will always have my fair share of insecurities but then I have to remind myself that the works of great artists such as yourself abbey, are fruits of labor and hard work of many years that also come with hundreds of challenges. So winning the moleskin watercolor pad would do me more than good hahaha. Seeing and using it would serve as a reminder of hard work.

    Lastly, thank you abbey for being a model of a future that every artist dreams of having. Keep on illustrating and inspiring abbey! 💗

    This year, I want to do and focus on watercolor since I’m kind of taking a break from the digital artworks. I can feel the rawness and the realness of traditional art and I want to practice this watercolor skill with the Moleskine watercolor pad. It’s very portable and very easy carry when I’m on my commute to school to kill time. This is a great opportunity for me to have this watercolor pad so I’ll be able to express my art the way I envisioned it to be.

  169. Lara Zuñiga
    January 31, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    Hi, Abbey! I’m so glad that you never fail to share as much as you can.

    I’d love to have this Moleskine Watercolor Pad because painting would be a great outlet and stress reliever amidst my last few months ever as a student and during the coming months before I take the board exams. Having something to do when everything school/career-related becomes too overwhelming will surely help keep me in check and remind me of a world outside of numbers and business stuff.

    Thanks a lot for this opportunity! :)

    January 31, 2016 at 9:32 pm

    If I win the Moleskine watercolor pad, I will use it as my main travel journal. I promised myself that I will start moment collecting this year and with the watercolor pad, I’m sure that I will have a blank page/ canvas where I can write or draw my thoughts andplaces I will visit. I want to win because it would be awesome to have art materials that I cannot afford and only dream of having. Also, since it has been given good feedback by idol Abbey Sy and other artist, it makes me want to try using it myself. Thank you sa giveaway Miss Abbey Sy. More power to you! 😀

    January 31, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    Wow. Just entering this giveaway promo brings in the hype, what more if somebody wins? Haha. I am inspired by your works as well as other artists when it comes to watercoloring. I was never really good with matching colors of paint or pastel stuff but now, I guess I’ve improved a lot. Thanks to your inspiration filled IG account, as well as other posts on watercolor. I love the idea of doing literally anything with watercolor, it allows mistakes and it is free flowing. It brought out the colors in mef that I never knee I could even create such subtle colors in my life besides black and white (I was fond of monochromes before).
    So, I’d like to say thank you for just doing something that inspires people and for the continued support you give indirectly. 😁

    Hello Ms. Abbey Sy! Well I’ve been wanting to improve on everything related to art. If ever I win this giveaway, I will use this Moleskine pad as my practice pad at the same time as my travel journal just like what you are doing with it Ms. Abbey, where I will write stories about my adventures and draw the places I would never forget. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway! 💖

    if ever i’ll win, i would use it for practicing calligraphy. I’ve been eyeing for moleskine for a while now. Not only on calligraphy though, I’m trying other media like watercolor etc. Moleskine notepads would be perfect to brush up my skills! :)

  176. Francesca S.
    January 31, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    If I win the watercolor pad, I’ll be using it as my art journal for 2016. I got into art journaling a few years ago but stopped because I always get frustrated with the papers I use. Since my primary medium is watercolor, this sketchbook will be perfect for this project. I’m also curious of what it feels like to use Moleskine notebooks since I’ve only admired them in stores but never got around to buying one for myself. :) Thank you Abbeyyy~

    I would really love to own a moleskine pad/ notebook. I’ve been eyeing and dreaming for it since my high school years. It would really be a big help to me for practicing lettering and watercolor and also in my course architecture. Hoping to win one of it! Thanks for this opportunity! ❤

    I would like to take your 3rd class on travel illustration and use that Moleskine to start a project on memory keeping. It would be wonderful to look back one day with different art interpretations of moments in my life and also observe how my craft evolves. I hear moleskine is incredible in withstanding the test of time. I’d love to win one. Cheers.

    Coze I’ve been searching for moleskin sketchpads here in Iloilo. No luck. NBS here have no stock of moleskin drawing pads. We don’t even have watercolor paper here. (Currently in awkward desparation. Ahahahah)

    January 31, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    My love affair with Moleskine started almost six years ago when my friend gave me two notebooks (a bundle of two notebooks), and I used it for my notes at school. The texture is just right–anyone who uses Moleskine knows what’s it like–smooth, and easy to write on. I’m sure that I could expect the same with the watercolour album. I would really love to have the watercolour album and the watercolours, since it would be nice to take my practicing to the next level, and it would inspire me to explore more where typography is concerned. I would really, really love to have the giveaway! :)

  183. Marian Alsonado
    January 31, 2016 at 11:15 pm

    Hi Ms. Abbey Sy!

    I love using watercolor on my drawings, it’s the most used medium of mine because watercolor are easy and challenging to use as you said.

    I’m using prang, but I’d love to have the brand you are using because I can see that the colors are more vibrant than the prang (but I still love it anyway haha!) that gives the drawing more life, evidence are on your artworks. I assume it’s more costly than prang, and I don’t have the budget for it (coz school requirements first huhu!) so if ever I’ll win, of course I would be so glad putting those colors on a paper that perfectly matches it (Moleskine! I’ve been eyeing on this too but y’know out of budget hihi!).

    Thanks for this opportunity you’re giving out to aspiring artists and to those artists already as well! You really inspire us with those artworks you’ve been doing. (No puns intended!)

    January 31, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    I’ve always wanted to try Moleskine! I haven’t started making a sketch journal, so if I win that pad, I’m gonna make sure that I would make use of it ’til the last page, and you will be the first to see my journal :D

    Watercolor has and will always be one of my favorite mediums. Although sometimes it gets quite frustrating when I don’t get the results I wanted, I still manage to have fun and enjoy the experience. I do not travel often since I’m busy with school, but when I do, I always try to keep a journal with me so I could paint in my free time. If I win this giveaway, I would definitely use it to record my travels and journeys, rest assured that it will not go to waste. :)

  188. Mariely

    I’ve been dreaming of owning a Moleskine pad/notebook but deym this thing is kinda expensive and way out of my budget hahahuhu. If I win a Moleskine pad I would use it to practice watercolor and lettering and I think this would really really reaaaaallllyyyy motivate me to draw, paint and improve my art. I really hope I would win this giveaway *fingers and toes crossed*

    Been wanting to start a travel illustration, even if I only travel around our province. Having a small Moleskin pad would very convenient as I can carry it around with me. Also, our local bookstore and school supplies doesn’t sell/have Moleskin here so it’s very hard to find one. Winning it would be a great help to finally be able to illustrate again. Thankies Abbey! ^-^

    You’ve inspired me from your calligraphy, blogging, travel art, 100 movies a year to painting. It will be my new journal (the one that I got now has few pages left). I only use pencil and ballpens on my journal. I will be very happy to add color to the documentation of my life. I rarely take photos (or even use social media) and am mostly expressing myself on paper. Thank you Abbey Sy for this new giveaway! (Didn’t win the first one so I bought #LettersFromABC ’cause I really really want it! Haha! :D)

    I’ll be using this Moleskine Pad to make more artworks! I am still practicing hand lettering using your book as my inspiration, and of course your blog. I also stalked your tumblr account and your answers about faqs. I want to win this simply because I love notebooks & papers. You mean so much to me Ms. Abbey, I also went to Color Pop Fair to see you and I really want to take a picture with you, pero hindi po kita nakita :'( and I need to go home dahil 2 hrs. pa byahe ko. I am saying this because, I want to win something from you. I’m planning to buy another ABC Hand Lettering because I want it to be signed. Hehe. I just need to save. Thank you & God bless you! Mwa. :-*

    I will be using the Moleskin in doodles, drawings, and lettering. I want to win it because I really love notebooks and I have longed to own a Moleskin. It is such a great notebook and I would love to win it so I will have a place to practice my drawing and lettering. :)

    I would like to have a moleskine watercolor pad but it’s okay if i don’t win. The important things is I will always be here to support you even if you didn’t know me personally but I think I know you through your artworks.

    P.S. thanks for the like of my instagram post last color pop fair. :)

    this would be a nice way to get something for this year! and to keep the inspiration flowing that I got this weekend, also IT SUCKED THAT I DIDN’T GET TO SEE YOU AT GRAPHIKA MANILA. 😭 but hoping to see you at Glorietta on the 13th, hopefully you’ll be there! 😍 keep making great artworks. 💙

    I want to use Moleskine pad so I can practice calligraphy and maybe try travel illustration like the way you do. I always always visit your blog and you have inspired me to always be creating. :) I want to win because I have always wanted to have a Moleskine notebook, but it is a bit pricey. Hope I win!

    I used to love drawing (watercolors were my favorite medium) when I was a kid. However, as I got older, my focus shifted to writing. Lately, I’ve been thinking about illustrating again, and winning this Moleskine would be just the push I need. :)

    Thanks for having this contest! I want to win the Moleskine pad because drawing has been my passion ever since preschool. I always drew for people as gifts and made cards or incorporated little doodles in people’s birthday/anniversary/celebration cards during school and work. I recently got a job being in the outdoors, so I would love to use the Moleskine to record my daily adventures and practice my talent again!

    hi po! i’m not a big fan doing traditional art but your works have inspired me to try pursuing it. i especially want to improve my skills in lettering :)

    I used to be enjoy arts and crafts until I became a wife and mother. My world revolves around them. Now that my kids are a little bigger now, I have some time for myself. I want to get creative again and reconnect with my artistic self. You’ve inspired me to be creative again. I love seeing your works on Instagram. If I win, I’m going to use the Moleskine for sketches and doodles…kind of like a journal with visuals.

  203. Myka Bonifacio

    I plan to use the notebook for daily sketches so that I will be able to practice drawing and painting daily! ☺️

    If I am lucky enough to win, I will use the moleskine watercolor pad for practice. It will be a great addition in keeping tabs with the progress I’m making in my watercolor journey.

    February 1, 2016 at 11:02 am

    OMG! Your travel illustrations have been the reason I started going into watercolor and lettering – promise! Seryoso, you were the first official Letterer I ever encountered, and that sparked so much interest for the medium. Although yes, I REALLY, REALLY want to be one of the winners, I’m commenting also because I look up to you for being so young and already so successful. I hope one day we can get to meet and make chika (and maybe also do some type of collab work, hopefully). :D Have fun living your dreams, Abbey! Stay inspired, and stay creative!

  207. Sarrah Jane
    February 1, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Hi Abbey. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity again. I hope you are having a good day. I have been a fan of yours and watched you gave birth t your book and post cards (sounds weird). Thanks for introducing the world and magic of calligraphy and lettering to me. If I got the Moleskin Watercolor pad, I will use it to practice more and to draw and paint places or things that makes me happy and inspires me. It’s a bit pricey and here in our province, it’s not sold, I even have to order to you personally just to get the book because they do not have that on our NBS store here. Thanks again Abbey, I promise I will use it everyday and will show you my work. <3

  208. Lix
    February 1, 2016 at 11:29 am

    I love Moleskine! Thank you for this giveaway, Abbey! I plan to use the pad for my future pieces, using watercolor and watercolor pencils! I really hope I could win one. Thank you again and may you have more blessings!

  209. Denice
    February 1, 2016 at 11:35 am

    I’ll be using it as a personal travel and thoughts journal, I guess. I love going to places and observing them, especially the people whom I do not know if I’ll be able to meet. Making portraits of people, places, food and experiences like writing history is a pleasure you truly want to share someday.

  210. Gelyn

    I’ll now pursue my dream by starting to sketch, draw, sketch, draw… until I become what God wants me to be.

    February 1, 2016 at 12:07 pm

    I really want to practice my watercolor painting skills this year. I can’t say that it will be a journal but maybe one could view it that way as I record my progress using that. I like painting dogs and I think I will start learning how to paint food so a small watercolor pad would be a great companion for daily practice.

  213. Pauline
    February 1, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    I’d like to have a very good watercolor pad as I continue my watercolor learning journey! And I believe Moleskine Watercolor Pad is one of the best! :)

    I already have your ABC’s of Hand Lettering and Ate June’s A year of positivity. THis art materials are just the one missing. I hope I could get a chance to win coz the Moleskine pad is such a must have. :)

    Thank you and Gobless!

    If I win,I will be using it to make a surprise gift for my close friend. And I will use Moleskine pad to practice calligraphy.I always visit your blog and your IG and you have inspired me by your works.God bless ;)

    February 1, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    If I get to win the Moleskin Watercolor pad, I will use it for my sketches and watercolor artworks. I haven’t had nor tried Moleskin Watercolor pad and I’ve heard lots of great reviews about this on how great the product is. Hoping for the best! :)

  217. Cym
    February 1, 2016 at 3:57 pm

    I will use the Moleskine watercolor pad for more watercolor pieces. I wish to win because I want to use quality watercolor paper pad to be inspired and to create possible masterpieces. :-)

    It’s difficult to find good quality supplies in my area. It would be great to have them easily available locally, and even so much better if I could win one!

  219. Tricia Lucido
    February 1, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    I was an architecture student, but I’ve shifted to my bigger passion which is studying languages (I’m a French major now)!

    My first love will always be languages, but the two years I spent in Arki gave me a first-hand account on how inspiring passionate artists can be. My batchmates, young creatives who aspire to use their art to change the country (and even the world) have inspired me with their passion and determination with their art.

    Even though my batchmates are all light-years ahead of me in terms of talent, I like to think that we share just the same love for art. Now that I don’t regularly spend my time with people who are constantly creating, I miss it terribly! And that’s how Abbey Sy has helped me–she’s has become theinspiring figure to look up to, the person who reminds me to “Always Be Creating” even though I’m not in school for an art-related program.

    I want to win this giveaway so I would be able to have an avenue for my creative thoughts, a handy friend when my lined notebooks and journals and pencils aren’t enough. Of all the mediums we used in Arki, watercolor has had my heart from the very beginning. I love how it behaves differently for every artist who dabbles into this medium. It’s flexibility has helped me develop my own style different from my peers’.

    I’ve always been fond of doodling and write my thoughts regularly in notebooks~ Following your blog has expanded my horizons to lettering and various kinds of art, and winning a Moleskine would be so amazing because the quality is really good and would be perfect for practicing *^*

    February 1, 2016 at 6:34 pm

    Moleskine has always been on wishlist since forever Haha ! I follow a lot of artists who use Moleskine and that’s how I was introduced to it. Whenever I go to NBS, Moleskine always tempt me but I just can’t afford it but thanks to you I will now have a chance in owning one. Having my very own Moleskin will definitely inspire me to explore more on watercolor and will be a great way to grow as an artist myself. Thanks for the chance and God Bless Abbey Sy !

    February 1, 2016 at 7:42 pm

    I bought your book and post cards because I am very inspired by your work! I am still saving up to buy the Havaianas Filipinas that you designed, though. LOL

    I am a beginner in arts and I would love to win in this giveaway because it would be such an inspiration to get something from you and use it in my ever growing passion for calligraphy, watercolor and arts!

    Hi ate Abbey Sy! I’m so happy that you’re having a giveaway again! 💖 That moloeskine pad will help me to motivate to practice more in painting and lettering. ☺ One of my goals this year is to hone my skills in painting and lettering because I really love making art and I aspire to be like you someday, ate Abbey. 💕 I will surely treasure this if ever I win this giveaway! Thank you so much ate Abbey. 😭

    February 1, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    Well, I’d love to win it coz.. sometimes I have this.. okay, most of the time I have this habit of doodling around the edges of my notebooks at school and I kind of want to fill a notebook (That is not covered in very important notes) with little things I see. Like a cookie. I draw really good cookies. And pocky. And cute little things that will eventually grow into something really good.

  226. Eunice
    February 1, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    I’d love to win the Moleskine pad because I want to keep on creating and exploring how watercolor works because it’s a medium I could learn to master in the future. It’s going to be an investment for me when I win it because from small things would come big things and those big thing are the masterpieces I would soon create.

  227. Colleen Rosales
    February 1, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    I’ll be using this pad to accompany me during my internship abroad, when I’ll be focused on my lab work I need something to keep me sane!! I’ll be alone so I need some company too. Art is my company :P I wanna win the Moleskine because I’ve heard a lot of good reviews about it but I can’t really afford to buy it hehe

  228. Ina Castro
    February 1, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    Hi ate Abbey! Ever since I was a kid I was captivated by hand letterings. I joined the last giveaway you posted and unfortunately I didn’t won. Also I’ve been wanting to buy things needed for this hobby of mine. I really wish I win this time because you’re my inspiration :DD Hope this comment reaches your heart :)) <3

    btw I'm really fangirling over you rn because you liked my tweet <3 (that's a first for me hehe)

    February 1, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    I honestly want to improve my writing and drawing skills more and although I do dwell well with pen and ink, I’d like to discover new forms of media and self expression, so to better experiment with colour and to experience having a moleskin brand notebook (can never afford them), it would be nice to be able to win the giveaway.

  231. Khaye Zapatero
    February 1, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    I will draw on it! Draw random things that inspires me, improve more. I also hated watercolors before because I am using the wrong materials and ended up being frustrated but now, i’m loving it. I love how water stains the paper, the texture and the dried outcome is just satisfying. Thank you for hosting another giveaway. :)

  232. Francesca
    February 1, 2016 at 8:39 pm

    i’ve never tried moleskine that’s why I joined this giveaway :) I wanna try it! I’m into lettering these days and I love using watercolor ♡ hoping to win your giveaway! Thank you for inspiring me! :)

  233. Valerie Cosio
    February 1, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    If given a chance, I will always bring it whenever I go, ’cause Moleskine is such an Instagram-worthy and very photogenic(haha) I love to scribbles, handlettering and it’ll be perfect for beginners like me to have Moleskine. Thank you for another giveaway! Advance Happy Chinese New Year! 😘 all the love

    I use it as a vessel to my words release by my thoughts to be weaved into poems as you write your letters on. :)
    Why do you want to win?
    I want to win because I want to win. Simple yet straight to the point. :)

    I started doing lettering arts last December. And since the start of 2016, I promised to do an art at least one everyday. I’m new with using watercolor but I’m trying! With some online help and inspiration like you! Yay! And to own this Moleskine pad will surely help my starter skills. This will be the best I’ll have for my arts if ever. ☺😊

    Hi abbey! I’m into watercolor like you too, but I’m just a beginner. I really love how the color combined and the different things that you can do with it and it will still look good. I’ve been using the berkeley watercolor pad for it is affordable and has good quality and I want to try this moleskine pad also! I wanna win 💖

    I love Moleskine products, I know it is expensive for its quality and hopefully I could own one because I’d like to use good products for my artwork so that I will be more inspired, be more creative and most of all help me improve my skill, thanks! :)

  240. Nicole
    February 1, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    hello!!! I would be using my (if ever i win lolz) Moleskine pad for my travel journal this summer. I really want to start improving my watercolor and lettering skills (wow) and summer would be the best time to do this so that I’m free from distractions. I would want to win because I rarely get the opportunity to buy great quality products and it would be amazing to get this for free hehe.

  241. Cee
    February 1, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    Moleskin products are quite famous for their fine quality of papers, but then, expensive products comes with the good quality. Sadly, watercolor paper/pads are quite hard to find around my area and I’d be happy to be given the chance to win this. ^u^ I’m into watercolor and I could barely practice as much as I want to. So I’m giving this a shot. :)) Also, thank you for being an inspiration; I love your artworks! :)

  242. Raissa Enriquez
    February 1, 2016 at 10:02 pm

    I’ve been wanting to have a watercolor pad ever since I knew about your lettering! You’ve been a great inspiration in pursuing my love for arts.

  243. JM Ilagan
    February 1, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    if I ever win the moleskin giveaway, firstly, I would use the pad for practicing my skills since I first started typography because I was inspired by you. Secondly, I would use the pad and my skills in typography in sending out striking messages to inform people about what they are doing. I badly want to win this because I believe this is another step for me in my journey as a typographist sooo why not pick me instead? hahaha I love you Abbey Sy!! I wish to meet you some time!! :) :D

  244. Karlu Adrian O. Tayabas
    February 1, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    I would be using the Moleskine for my weekly traditional art journal/diary. Basically, I wanted to draw what I have done in that week rather than just writing it.

    I want to win because I can’t afford to buy Moleskine honestly. XD I just buy regular sketch papers for my traditional drawings.

  245. Jade de Guzman
    February 1, 2016 at 10:13 pm

    Well, okay. Let’s face it. MOLESKIN ARE PRETTY EXPENSIVE! Canson is my favorite watercolor paper now since it’s the best that I have tried so far (that is cheap/affordable). And as a young and starting artist, giveaways are my only avenues to expensive materials to be on my hand. I’ve been saving up for a new set of watercolor (Winsor or Dr. Ph? Which is better?) and papers. I will be using this to put my spontaneous travel works and letterings. Thank you for giving us chances, Ms Sy! You’re still one of my best inspirations along with filipino calligraphists/letterers, Anina Rubio and Googlygooeys.

  246. Jeopril Jane
    February 1, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    Why should I win this giveaway? My passion lies on Literature. I read and write a lot. Yet before I started into making myself a writer, I’ve always loved drawing/painting. Since these interests propel me into a good person, I think, then chose to become a teacher. Now I’m teaching Literature and Arts. It’s so fulfilling teaching young minds the beauty of art– either in the form of words or figures. By winning this prize, I can be a more effective teacher. I wanted my students to see that I’m not just a teacher imparting theories but also helping my students to engage themselves in art. So this additional moleskin pad is an art teacher must-have!

  247. Jim Marlon A. Macaraeg
    February 1, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    I’ll be using this Moleskine pad to make inspirational words to remind e of my financial and career goals. This pad will be a reminder of what my goals are, what have I achieve, what will I need to work out and an inspiration to never give up and continue to develop and persevere.

  248. Ida Penaflor
    February 1, 2016 at 10:33 pm

    Hi Ms Abbey! First, I just want to say that I’m such a huge fan of your works! Grabe, sobrang nakakainspire ka po! If I would win the moleskine pad, I would use it as my art journal alongside my planner from Ms. June. Hehe. Sayang nga po di ko napasign ung book ko sayo nung color pop fair, nahiya po ako lumapit. I really really want to follow your footsteps and I hope I can be as good as you. Thank you and God bless po! Love you po 😁

  249. Jonas
    February 1, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    I really want to win this! Hi Abbey! If I get the chance to win this, I would spend most,is not all, of my summer just practicing watercolor painting on the Molesline, and probably mae little masterpieces! I want to win because I want to develop myself as an artist just like most of the other people, but I also just want to have fun and experiment with the paint and the paper. (And also because I’ve never won anything before so if I do win this one it would be a very memorable first!)

  250. Camille
    February 1, 2016 at 10:43 pm

    Hello! I just started my “artsy journey” last October and honestly, you were one of my first inspirations. Heehee. If ever I win, I’ll use the Moleskine pad for my watercolor paintings and letterings. I only heard good reviews on this product and it’ll give me a big opportunity to “up my game.” :D

  251. Karen
    February 1, 2016 at 10:57 pm

    I’ve started watercolor painting a few months ago. I’m still no expert and the stuff that i use are soft pastels (mix with water) and those watercolor papers which you can buy at 50 pesos for 10 sheets. I’ve been planning on buying better quality tools but sadly, i haven’t saved enough money (we know how expensive art materials could be). It would be wonderful to experience painting with better quality materials and to not worry whether you’ll lose your works or figure out how to compile them neatly. Like you, my style is more on painting human faces. I’m still perfecting my proportion though! :)

  252. Carmela
    February 1, 2016 at 11:00 pm

    Since I can’t afford to buy a Moleskine pad (and if I win one), I will use it as my visual journal, as well. Watercolor is my favorite medium now, and as a beginner, I’d like to try products that can actually help me improve. :)

  253. Sean
    February 1, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    Hiya! I just watched your Mars guesting earlier and I instantly became a fan. :)
    If ever I’m gonna win, I’ll use the notebook to document my after-college life, through illustrations and typography. College life made me really broke and busy, and I think the notebook would be a reaally awesome graduation gift for me, as I start anew with my life as a professional, both artistically and career-wise. Thanks and keep inspiring people! Love your works! :)

  254. Joan N. Baluran
    February 1, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    Hi Abbey Sy!
    I would love to have my own travel journal as soon as possible and I think moleskine pad is the best to use.
    I want to enhance my art using watercolor.
    I really want to win because I am determined to be a better artist. Good quality materials are very helpful too.
    Thanks!

  255. Alyssa
    February 2, 2016 at 12:12 am

    If I win this giveaway contest, I will use it to practice on site urban sketching with watercolor (finally). It’s so hard to bring a big watercolor pad anywhere. For some reason, the smaller pads cost way more so if given the chance to win these prizes, I would use them to hone my skills and enhance my craft 😊

  256. Paula Pedroso
    February 2, 2016 at 12:39 am

    It’s Abbey-senpai! Your art has always been fascinating and an expressive play on the words, and you’re really awesome!

    A giveaway? I’m merely trying my luck- nothing’s wrong in hoarding them sketchpads but I think the moleskine’s watercolor pad would definitely be a great treat and with all its deserve raving, a medium i would enjoy. Maybe it will kickstart my works or just everyone else to feel the urge to place pen or ink or paint in the pages.

    Ultimately, thanks for being a great inspiration. This is my first time to join, but not my first in lingering around and what not. Have a nice day and thanks for the opportunity. Oh, have a safe trip and enjoy!

    February 2, 2016 at 1:03 am

    This is awesome! Thank you so much for the giveaway!
    I would really love to have one, it’s so hard to find a good watercolor pad here in our town. I really want to improve my skill in watercolor by creating everyday / journaling. So it would be perfect if I win. Thanks again! ❤

  259. Katrina Sandra Sandoval
    February 2, 2016 at 1:14 am

    I’d like to win because this will be a handy piece in my travels this coming end of February to Sagada and during the second week of March to Ilo-ilo. This will be perfect as I stare and be observant with the surroundings. Also, I truly believe I will be able to make more good memories as I enjoy the company of my friends and drawing the landscapes at the same time.

  260. Janine
    February 2, 2016 at 1:17 am

    I’d like to win this really high quality Moleskine watercolor pad because I travel a lot and it is really hassle to bring a lot of watercolor paper and by the time I arrive to my destination my paper is already crumpled and hard to work with. This beautiful moleskine watercolor pad would help me to be organized with my artwork and keep them neat and safe from my backpack. Hoping to win this wonderful giveaway because this is such a wonderful gift. Godbless Abbey! <3

  261. Cesca Santos
    February 2, 2016 at 1:26 am

    I’ve always wanted to improve my watercolor skills. I already have some of the more affordable papers to practice with but I really want to try using those with higher quality. Sadly, with my meager allowance as a student, I still haven’t managed to afford one. So it would be really really helpful (and awesome) to get a moleskine watercolor pad that I could use to practice with. If I win, I also could finally use watercolors (in addition to inks and pencils) when I go out on art meet ups with my friends. Yay! :)

  262. Maegan Rhyzelle Rivero
    February 2, 2016 at 1:33 am

    I’m planning on using it for learning new styles and techniques with watercolor. You are defo one of my idols when it comes to adorable illustrations, and beautiful lettering. This will be a chance for me to actually start something new again. <3

  263. Lykah Takai
    February 2, 2016 at 1:47 am

    I’d love to win a Moleskine watercolor sketchpad because I would use it for urban sketching. I recently just fell in love with the art of urban sketching because, unlike taking photographs, urban sketching recreates the place with this whole new atmosphere that only you can achieve. And I think the place would be a lot more meaningful if you recreate it with urban sketching.

  264. Elai
    February 2, 2016 at 2:02 am

    I’ve been using watercolor and gouache and haven’t found the perfect paper. I always wanted to try moleskine but cash on other brands instead since I tend to finish a sketchbook fairly fast. Thanks for the giveawayyy!

  265. jhel
    February 2, 2016 at 2:05 am

    I’ll become more inspired to do callligraphy having the moleskine coming from you, my favorite artist! 😀😁☺

  266. Sharla Raye
    February 2, 2016 at 4:00 am

    I’m a calligraphy enthusiast. Watercolor is somewhat my weakness but it is something I want to work on. The Moleskin pad would be perfect to bring around whenever inspiration strikes and I want to practice illustrating what I see. I don’t travel a lot (and I wish I could) but that doesn’t stop me from trying to draw/illustrate what the highlights of my days are. =)

    You and the featured artists are real inspirations! This moleskine giveaway is sooo perfect! I’ve been dying to own one but my budget doesn’t permit. :-) I am currently practicing watercolor as a medium. I heard and just like what you said, it’s perfect for watercolor.

    You are an inspiration Abbey Sy! I really love your watercolor lettering and illustrations of your travels. That inspired me to try out watercolor and i have been practicing since the first time i saw your works. Keep up the good work ♥

    I would love to win this for my sister, who’s interested in calligraphy.
    :)
    I’ll borrow the watercolors from her if I win, but I’ll let her keep the notebook.

    If ever I get to win this giveaway, I will be using this Moleskine pad for my watercolor studies and documenting the places I go to. It will be an avenue for me to develop my current non-existent drawing/illustration skills. I want to win this so bad because I’ve always wanted a watercolor Moleskine pad and I haven’t seen any in the bookstores I usually go to and it would be the perfect birthday gift for me since making art is something I do to get my mind off things in the midst of school deadlines or for me to just think clearly. It even makes me discover more of myself. ☺️

    Hi ms. Abby! I’ve always been a fan of your work and I always join your giveaway contest but sadly I never won..hahaha.. but It’s ok.. I’m still hoping this time. hahaha. well, I rarely use watercolor paper since it’s so hard to find it here in our place, I’m just lucky to find one, last time.. and it’s your my “my lettering progress keeper” If I should have known, I should have buy more of it. well, anyway, thank you for being an inspiration, not just me but also for others.. hope to meet you soon, here in cebu! Keep inspiring and keep posting awesome works. God bless! 😊

    Loooove! 😍 I really am a big fan of Moleskin and would really love it if I would get it. For years, I’ve been looking for the perfect pad and notebook and paper for my watercolors but all of them, even the watercolor paper I bought recently doesn’t match up to this Moleskine Watercolor Pad. If ever I’d get it, I’d use it to hone my skills in painting with watercolors and maybe try some portraits–something I’ve never done before!

    Ever since , i was a fan of notebooks and papers, since then i started collecting it when i was a little hihi :)) I will be using moleskine pad for my accomplishments/goals/planner/ or like writing simple things that makes me happy each day. Ms. Abbey Sy is such an inspiration for me, I am overwhelmed by her works especially the places that she visits and her beautiful calligraphy skills 😘its like a heaven haha 😉 I wish i could be like her (sigh) . I am hoping and praying that I will win this giveaway *crossed fingers* 😭😭. Thank you so muchhhhh 🌸😘 Godbless and may you continue to inspire more 😊

    I’m still a newbie to watercolor, but I know that practising my skill on it will make me better! I know moleskine is an amazing brand, I’ve heard lots about it — BUT seeing my own artwork un a moleskine pad is what I’d love to see. :-) If I get to win this giveaway, I’ll make sure to practice my skill in watercolor so that I could paint my creations in this pad with pride and maybe show it off to my friends! :-)

    I would use it practice my passion more accurately! Because watercolor papers are too pricey and I can’t afford it all the time T__T

    I thought that with the starbucks planners collaborating with moleskine , I’ll finally have my dream journal. Unfortunately, that dream was a bust since the planners were actaully quite disaapointing ( paper was too thin and whatnot ). I really really want to win this giveaway to finally have a moleskine jornal, which I’ve been covetting for a while now! Plus I can’t seem to find any good watercolor paper that’s within my budget so….painting on avtual watercolor paper would be nice for once :D

    I’m a sucker for journals or any notebooks that i could use as an abode for my thoughts. I own quite a number of notebooks but none of them is a moleskin one since it’s quite pricey. So yeah, i’m really hoping i could win one <3

  285. Franchesca
    February 2, 2016 at 11:36 am

    I would like to win a moleskine pad because just like you (and the featured artists) said, it is very reliable when it comes to both ink and watercolor. I trust your words since the quality of your works are clearly awesome! I would also like to practice watercolor (I still think of it as a challenging medium) on my moleskine pad. Crossing my fingers for this one!

    Hi, Ate Abbey! I’d really hope I’d be picked. Art is the only sanctuary for to release my feelings and emotions and most particularly water color art.

    I have this really weird habit of bringing my stationeries along with me evuuhhrywhere because my best ideas usually come to me when I’m on the go. I really want to improve my skills in the arts and not be told that Im only talk and not do.

    Also at least having more freedom and stability with a really good notebook like that. Wow. <3 o <3

    After seeing your travel illustrations as well as other artist’s that I follow on instagram, I’ve also wanted to start documenting my travels and memorable experiences through illustrations and adding some captions or short sentences to describe the experience further. :)) Using watercolor and inks i think, would make it much colorful and vivid and it’s also a plus that the moleskine pad’s paper can absorb water and blend color well that even a beginner like me can produce such vibrant colors without ruining the paper quality. Also it is compact and can fit on any travel bag so that sudden insipiration or burst of ideas can easily be recorded and remembered.

  288. Mimi P.

    If I were to win, I’d use my Moleskine Pad to practice doing watercolor portraits and blending skin tones!

    I will be using the Moleskine pad for practicing my Lettering and Watercolor skills. You have been an inspiration to me and to my work. I want to win because it will motivate me to do more and practice more on my craft (and since my lettering pad by abbey sy is already full i need a new set of pad lol 😂). I am not as good as many people but I strive hard to do my best. Keep the art flowing and inspiring people! 😊

    I’m entering this contest for the man who works so hard to provide for me and our little boy. Being a stay-at-home-mother is not easy. Yes, you’ll rely on your man for the budget but I wanted to give him something to last our lifetime in return. My husband has always been very creative. It’s hust that he cannot put it into practice as he does something differently at work. And when he goes creative, I know it’s one way of making him feel relaxed and comfortable. I really hope I’d win. Thank you.

    I am an Architecture student, and I’ve always loved doing art and architecture stuff in my notes, but I’m stucked with the pens and markers bc I suck at using watercolor :( I hate it hate it hate it cause I badly want to do it great, and I know that I’ll be using this medium for my future presentations (cross fingers) BUT I JUST CAN’T DO ITT. The moment I dip it into the water and to te pigment, and just start at the watercolor pad. It’s horrible. I know this starter pack will help me, so I hope I’ll win :) I definitely need this for my passion as well as my profession :)

    Hi Abbey! I am a big fan of yours, even before you published your first book! I’ve been following you from twitter to instagram and even in behance :) It’s amazing how a creative way of writing can get this far. I am a big fan of people with an amazing penmanship and now, you set the bar high by publishing a book! How awesome is that? :) In my pursue of becoming good in the field of typography, I am always searching for new possibilities to enhance my work-in-progress skills. Sadly, some paper companies can’t handle the my intense (bc passion, hahah) way of writing/drawing. I will be very pleased if I can be one of the winners of your Moleskine watercolor pad giveaway! I’ve been a big fan of Moleskine (based on the specs describe on the internet and many artists use it, especially you!) but unfortunately, our province (I lived in Butuan City) doesn’t have a National Book Store (yet). On the other hand, if I order it online it will be too pricey for me (bc shipping fee and all). So, I took this privilege to join (and hopefully win :) ) your giveaway! Hope you can read this and consider me :)

    Thank you and God Speed!
    xoxo Johanna

    P.S. This is my first time to join a giveaway. (Beginner’s Luck?)

    I’ll use it when inspiration hits me. I really want to keep my creations in a very cool and versatile material and I think Moleskine would be the best choice for it. And it would be great to share it with my friends. Thank you for sharing Ms. Abbey! God speed! :)

    I was forced to take an Engineering course (even though i loved art so bad) for the sake of making my parents proud. And this coming April, i will be graduating. Finally, after 5 years of surrounding myself with people who don’t have the passion in art as I do, i want to make it up to my talent that i left behind. Winning here would be like owing a diploma as well. All i want is to rekindle with the hobby i missed doing after i graduate and with your help, that would mean the world to me.

    Hi! <3

    If I win, I'm going to use the pad for my keep-it-forever-and-don't-give paintings. It'd be handy to have it in my bag along with my waterbrush and colors. More paper for typography~

    The paper quality of Moleskine is awesome. The pad would be a great addition to my art supply hoard!
    Cheers!!

    Good day! I would love to have it because I believed that my dream of being an artist wasn’t dying. I have been away from my passion for a long time because of many things, but last month, I realized that it is instilled in me.

    Moleskine is my dream product to use in my art. And I really love seeing how many artist patronize it.

    So I thank you for this chance given to all of us.

    Hello, Abbey! I’ve been following you on Tumblr since 2009 when I first saw your illustrations. It’s almost six years of being an inspiration to me. Winning this giveaway is a great opportunity to develop more my passion for art and letter writing. I already got your book, “The ABCs of Hand Lettering” and just recently, a set of coloring brush pens and I think it was such a perfect timing to have seen this giveaway posted. All I would just need by now is a Moleskine! Winning this would complete my aspiration to create something for other people and move them with my creativity. I didn’t give up on art despite many redirections in life; I hope others won’t too. You have fueled my love for art through your creations and I will be forever thankful to you for being an inspiration.

    Thank you for the giveaway! I mostly paint anime characters and sky. I recently bought a sakura watercolor and i’m looking for a right type of paper (i’m crurrently using a sketchpad that i bought on a bookstore). Moleskine sounds good but i don’t have enought budget for it. Hoping to win the giveaway. thank you! :) <3

    I draw and paint as a form of expressing my thoughts and just letting my ideas flow out. I draw on my journal so that I would remember all the beautiful things that I have seen. I really do think that this giveaway would help me a lot on improving my art since I’m only a beginner. I want to continue this not only as a hobby but as a part of who I am and who I want to become 😊

    Thank you so much for this giveaway! It’s so hard to find a good watercolor pad especially here in Cebu, and I’ve always wanted to give Moleskine a try and I’m on a budget. I’m planning on using it for my anatomy studies and to find and develop my own art style.

    Hello ms. Abby Sy. First of all, you are very inspirational artist for me. I see you on kawaii manila 2 event last 2 years ago, but I’m too shy to get autograph from you -_-‘. Anyway I like to join this giveaway. I love to paint sakura trees and such. I love Moleskine, too bad it’s not available here in Baguio. I hope to win this awesome giveaway.

  322. Shobe
    February 2, 2016 at 6:03 pm

    I would love to try one of Moleskine products because I usually just stare at them at the bookstores because of the price. I do watercolors and art, I’d make sure that I’d be making lovely art, if I’ll be able to win one :)) Thank you!

  323. Monique Hilario
    February 2, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    I’m not that lucky with giveaways but I really hope that I’ll get to win the Moleskine pad (plus other goodies!). Watercolor is my way of de-stressing so it would be cool to have the perfect size of pad to take with me wherever I go. I wanted to try them out for a very long time but they’re always out of stock. Fingers crossed on this one. Thank you in advance, Abbey! :)

  324. Patty Castillejos
    February 2, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    I’d like to win a moleskine pad because first and foremost, it’s like the god of all notebooks and sketchpads! I mean, moleskine is absolutely a trusted brand when it comes to these things because it has (absolutely) good paper quality for any works!Hence, it’s a really good storage for artworks. Plus, it’s really hard to find a good quality and convenient sketchpad like this; I should now, I’ve been in and out of bookstores but I can only find are watercolor papers (not in pads). Also, this could be a great journal for my art, to keep in track of progress and probably life too hehe! Anyway, thanks for a wonderful opportunity, having this giveaway. I hope, if I do win this, I could be as good as you and other artists I look up to. More power to you Ms. Abbey Sy :)

  325. Nicole Dela Cruz
    February 2, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    I honestly haven’t tried Moleskine pad before because it’s quite expensive. And now that I had a chance to win and it’s coming from youuuu Abbey Sy, I immediately grabbed the opportunity and it’s actually my first time to participate in this kind of online contest hahaha.
    I will use the Moleskine Pad to practice my drawing skills because I know that it needs more improvement. I won’t just use the Moleskine pad for my own improvement with my passion but more importantly, deliver the message hidden in every piece of artwork that I make :)

    Calligraphy and hand lettering is my latest favorite hobby, and it’s basically because your works have inspired me to join this field! I am also a guilty hoarder of notebooks and I do believe that in order to produce beautiful works, one must have the best notebook. I believe Moleskin Magic caters to that need of ours. :)

    February 2, 2016 at 7:21 pm

    I absolutely look up to you on how you work with watercolors (like i bought your first book and sketchpad haha. )You were one of the reason next to agnes cecile on why i started to use watercolors. Next year i’ll be on my senior high school (k-12) and i’m getting the music and arts strand and i really really want to win the moleskine so i could use a very handy sketchpad wherever i go and to start of for my strand. and i’ve been drooling over that moleskine for years but it’s too pricey for me so i will be the luckiest in the world the universe rather (naks) if i did got that moleskine. Thanks abbey!

  333. Janelle Derrine
    February 2, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    I’d use it whatever I want! A journal, a pad for improving my skills in painting and sketching and for calligraphy! This is my first time to try to enter an online contest, I usually don’t try cause I get the “nah, they won’t pick you anyway” thought. But then I thought, hey, dropping by won’t hurt ;) So winning this sketchbook is a great experience!

  334. kaila
    February 2, 2016 at 8:02 pm

    i’ll be using this to improve my skills. with this i can practice more. Drawing or painting or anything related to art keep me calm and help me to relax, from tons of work in school (btw i’m an engineering student) when i wanted to relax my mind from math haha and everything i just grab my notebook and pen and do some doodling and with this ,it can prevent me from making my math notebooks from being a sketch pad or drawing pad.

    I have always wanted to be able to draw and paint beautiful works of art, but I’ve never really done enough practice. I’ve recently started the year trying to make weekly journal drawings and sometimes just random drawings in order to be better. I think it would be nice to have a pocket-sized moleskine that I can bring with me anywhere and use it to make more art when I’m idle instead of looking at my phone all the time for once. Would definitely be lucky if I get this! :)

  338. MEIAJOY NINA VERANO
    February 2, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    Well, moleskines are really expensive. I do see them in the bookstore here in our city but never had the chance to try one. If i win, I’ll probably use it for my occasional doodle and typography shizz, i actually heard that moleskines are pretty durable so it will help in preserving my work since most of my doddle books get destroyed before i even fill it up with drawings. I wanna win because I simply wanna try using moleskine. It might help me see how good of an investment to buy moleskines than buy cheap doodlebooks every month or so.

    Seeing your visual travel diaries have always been such eyecandy to me and it would be great to own my own Moleskine watercolor notebook for when I travel in the future. I’m an Interior Design student as well so it would be nice to have a handy-dandy notebook with me whenever I see a piece of furniture that I like / just something nice that I can use for my future concepts. ♡

    I’ve always wanted a Moleskin sketchpad/ watercolor pad, too ad it’s too expensive for my budget D: And I’ve always wanted to use watercolor ever since attending a 2 day class of Chan Lim! :D and ur art is a great inspiration :D

    aww i’ve always been wondering what pads or notebooks abbey sy have been usiing. it’s moleskine all along! I want to have one though. Will use it so I can do watercolor lettering anywhere conveniently! ^_^

    I have always been a fan of art, whatever form of art. I am always fascinated about how could these artists come up with these creative ideas which are new and fresh. I’ve been eyeing on watercolor ever since, I love how the strokes are, how light or dark it can be and the colors itself.

    If given the chance to win this giveaway, I would use this moleskin watercolor notebook to try out my luck with watercolor and also for me to practice. I live in Pampanga which is pretty much away from Manila making it more hard to pursue watercolor since my resources here are limited, not all bookstores carry moleskine notebooks and brushes.

    I will use it to create something I’ve always dreamed of, to try out watercolor and jump out of my comfort zone to try out new things and explore.

    I am really inspired by your travel illustration that I decided to make my own! I only use my old notebooks in illustrating which disables me from using water color since the paper is thin. I want to have my own version of travel/food illustration and I hope you can help me with that! :)

  345. Gia
    February 2, 2016 at 9:25 pm

    I hope to win your giveaway :) If ever I win, I will use it to express myself through watercolor painting and doing calligraphy. The notebook will serve as my life, travel and adventure log. I will also use it to practice and create designs for our future home – I want it to surround it with rustic wall art/decors. :) Hehe.

    Btw, I’ve been your follower for almost 6 years now! :) Dati amazed na amazed ako sa mga canvass paintings mo, gusto kong mag hoard sa shop mo ng mga bags, pouches, etc. ;) Congratulations on your book! :)

    I would use the Moleskine pad as a journal that I will look back upon a few years down the line. Instead of fleeting past the orange and pastel pink horizon of the sunset by the beach in Camarines Sur, I’d sit down and paint what I see. As I look back, flicking through the pages, I’d be able to visualize what my eyes saw from that moment, a slow and steady reminder of the minutes that ticked by waiting for the first layer to dry, hearing the birds chirp and the waves lap over each other– instead of scrolling through a phone and ignoring that photo of the beautiful sunset in favor of seeing photographs taken by actual professional photographers. I want to win the Moelskine pad because, this way, I would see and feel what I did that time and how special enough that moment was for me to document it.

    If ever I’ll win this giveaway, I’ll use the Moleskin watercolor pad in starting calligraphy. I’ve been into lettering since I got inclined to pens and I am forever willing to write with style. This giveaway would be of great help to start fresh and improve my skills. Also, since I bumped into your blog, your twitter, and your facebook, I suddenly got inspired and bought your book, it really helped me a lot. Praying that this will be my time. :)

    Since I was a kid, I was already into art. I used to draw on my drawing book using a charcoal pencil. I also tried using charcoal stick partnered with my brush. So now, I am inspired to win the Moleskine watercolor notebook to try my art skills in a new area. I also like to improve my watercolor skills because I didn’t have the chance to, when I was little. I really hope I can win this time. :) Good luck to your future career, and I wish you more success! :)

    If I will be able to win this beautiful giveaway, I honestly would like to take my calligraphy seriously since I’m really into it recently. I will also use this as an instrument to improve my skills in watercolor painting, to bring out the artist that’s been hiding inside me because you inspire me a lot to do so.I want to pursue this as one of my passion in my life. The main reason why I joined this giveaway is that I always wanted to have good quality and trusted brands of watercolor paper and pads too bad that it isn’t available in our locality. Fingers crossed and God Bless Ms. Abbey Sy.

    Every time I go to malls/bookstores I always stare at Moleskine Products, at first I didn’t know they have this Watercolor Pad and since that day, I wanted to have one :( It was just that I can’t buy/afford them because I have a lot of things to do and to buy like for my plates. So I guess if ever, I’d use them for my not-so-related-to-plates kind of art. Ha ha ha. I always wanted to use watercolor as my medium. But I don’t have a pad. Maybe this is the time . . . . So in short, I want to win. For once in my life, I want to experience this pad! SERIOUSLY.

    Hi Abbey! I want to win the Moleskine Pad because I want to start my own little watercolor journal. I want to enhance more what I have in watercoloring and maybe not just that but in art. I want this little Moleskine so much because of the perfect size it has for any person. It doesn’t give you the pressure of doing big things like a regular sized sketchbook would do. So this would be a great start for me to actually finish one whole pad ^_^

    They say, in order to become an expert at what you do, you need to practice for 10,000+ hours. And, in order to do that, you should get inspiration from random things around you. I will use this portable Moleskin Watercolor pad and put it in my bag everyday such that I may be able to do so! :)

  354. Matthew Belarmino
    February 2, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    I would use the Molskine Watercolor Pad to enhance my skills in watercolor lettering. I would really like to win because when I paint, I really want good quality paper and when I paint in good quality paper I am sure that the outcome will be great.

    I am proud to say that I am an artist. I do sketching, filmmaking, designing, and few days ago I just started exploring the use of watercolor. I grew fond of watercolor, yes I do. I love how this new medium — for me — helps to bring out my hidden potential. I would really love to accept one of those starter packages. I will surely make use of it, I would even make you see the progress that your package gives. I am hopeful that somehow you’ll consider my reason for you to choose me. I just want the best materials bring the best in me. Nothing is better than the best, MOLESKINE! I would really appreciate it Ms. Abbey Sy! Hope to meet you also in person.

    If luck finally comes to me and I win this awesome moleskin watercolor pads, I would definitely use it during art sessions with my friends. It’s perfect timing since we were planning to start-up a small group of people to do a once or twice a month art jams on different locations and this pad will help me boost up my artistic skills. It’s nice to have a high quality materials as I think it improves the art more. I want ot win this because it’s something I never had before and it will be great to use something of high-quality.

    Hello Abbey!!!
    Glad to see this blog post in my time, I’m also using a moleskine on my daily watercolor practice. It’s a small one the size of a pocketbook but I’m happy using since it holds the water enough and allows me to play with the colors. it’s perfect for me knowing that there’s something waiting for me at the end of the day at the office. Sketching in moleskine gives me an escape from depression and office pressures. Besides its good practice to home my skills even on weekdays so I can make big art projects on weekend. My Moleskine keeps me sane. I always make it a point to make one artwork a day even for an hour. I’m posting daily on my instagram @lapiskamay. :)

    If (I hope I do!) I win a Moleskine Art Plus pad, I will use it to enhance my relatively new watercolor painting and lettering skills. I also do some calligraphy and I think the journal’s paper can hold the ink nicely.

    I’d like to use the chance to finally keep together ideas, words and art; use it as a travel and/or personal journal. I get sudden urges to write short poems/ lyrics and it would be nice to fill the journal with words from my heart and marry them with art (I like painting flowers!). Inspiration can come from anyone and anywhere and the journal will be more than convenient for what I want it for.

    I really want to win since I know Moleskine journals are of high quality and is a fave of sorts of the wonderful artists all over the globe. It’s also quite expensive and it would be nice to finally own one (I’ve been wanting one for years!) and possibly create better reflections of myself. <3

    Srsly hindi pa ako nakakagamit ng mga materials na katulad ng Moleskine i usually use low cost art materials. Kaya kung mabibigyan man ako ng chance to use this kind of materials pwede ko tong magamit everytime na may design plate ako. Sana manalo ako kasi malaking tulong ito para sa course ko at para na rin mashare ko sa ibang classmate ko so that this kind of product will be more recommended to other beginners lalo na naging trendy ang lettering and other artsy thingy hahahha.

    More giveaways pls! Hahahahha through giveaways na gngwa nyo eh nagkakaroon kami ng chance to have those precious art materials. Hihihi thats all god bless abbey!!! 💙💙💙

    I would love to have a Moleskin pad. I’m gonna use it as a journal to write , draw things when I’m in a good mood and if I want to express myself by lettering and drawing.. You actually inspire in this field. I love arts and crafts kaya mas pinupush ko pa ung sarili ko sa field na ‘to. I want to improve my art skill. I have a small notebook but not too thick for lettering kaya bumabaon ung tinta ng pen sa likod. I don’t know / I’m not good in using watercolor but I want to give it a try since it’s a new year if I win. hihihi. Oh. Thank you for this giveaway.. :D

    I’m not an artistic person, but I’m working hard on it. If I win this, it will serve as my foundation in bringing out the inner artsy persona of mine. You’re a part of my first step thru inspiration. Hope you’ll take a bigger part by, me winning this giveaway. ^^ thank you Ms. Abbey. 😊💙 GOD bless!

    On my first year of Architecture, my professor introduced me to the medium, watercolor. I was scared to use it at first (but I had to or else I’ll fail) so I practiced and then eventually I fell in love with it. But the hassle of stretching watercolor paper takes too much time.

    I was then inspired by you, Ate Abbey. Your travel illustrations are amazing and your work, its beautiful. I want to win this Moleskin Pad so I could create sketches of places I’ve been or the buildings I’m designing, rendered in watercolor, pen or ink. So I could create art that could maybe inspire others like the way you inspire us. :)

  368. Jennifer Ibay
    February 2, 2016 at 11:18 pm

    I deserve to win this give-away contest because I’ll be using this moleskine watercolourpad whenever i have dem artsy juice commin’ since it’s very different to have an A+ class of pad for using watercolor. With those watercolor pad, I can easily practice my skills in calligraphy and portrait painting. I’ll use those as one of my tools in order to improve and do better. Hoping I’ll win! You’re a real inspiration to us, Abbey! Good day! <3 :)

    Everytime I look for inspiration your works is one of the things i go to. And i hope to win the moleskin watercolor pad because I’d also want to try drawing using watercolor. I’d also plan to use it as my travel journal for my indonesia trip. ❤❤❤

    Anyway thanks so much. You just dont know how many people you inspire. God bless you more.

    Truth be told I have tried and tested a handful of brands of journals and blank notebooks, I have yet to find my perfect match. I consider myself a stationery geek saving up for every material that I now carry in my arsenal. I have always regarded Moleskin as the “Artist” grade sketchbook and have only had the chance to own the mini journals that were given to me as a gift. I would be over the moon to if I were to be lucky enough to win and I hope I can have my watercolors grace the pages of a Moleskin note.

    It is a great privilege to be able to follow your beautiful work Ms. Abbey Sy. If the prize lands on someone else’s hand I wish them the grace of art and may the keep doing what they love. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I am a design student who’s not too confident with her sketches. I have always believed in their big role in coming up with good designs but I never got to the push to try it again and maybe winning this giveaway would perhaps inspire me to do more sketches of things, people, places I see everywhere I go at any particular time of the day!

  373. Maricar
    February 3, 2016 at 12:22 am

    I love writing down a lot of stuff and experimenting when it comes to how I write them. If I ever win this, I would love to use it to practice on my (hopefully existent) calligraphy skills and probably doodling too. Thank you so much for the opportunity for us to win this! :D Also, I really enjoy seeing your work Ms. Abbey! I look forward to seeing more and I hope that you always have lovely days. :)

    A budding/struggling artist could always do with another sketchpad to practice their skills in. I’ve always done my practicing in random scratch papers I’ve been able to nab from my siblings and I guess it would be great to draw in something legendary as a moleskine sketchpad. I think there would be leagues of difference in the experience in creating works of art in quality paper versus recycled paper. I hope I win! :)

  375. Christienne Angelique Cruz

    You know when I started doing arts I never knew I had that inside me. Even though I paint and draw almost every day now, it’s still a surprise to come into a whole room dedicated to the messes I make and to see my art table covered with paintboxes and brushes and know they’re mmine. This is because I didn’t grow up with them. I always loved to make things …. I especially loved to sew ~ a room filled with needles, thread, fabric and embroidery hoops would make more sense to me than the still-surprising sight of brushes and paint! Now I design my own fabric and mix it up, sewing and drawing to make things like the dishtowel on the left. I’ve always mixed up my hobbies. I fell in love with the art. 💞💗💚💕

    I have always wanted to do watercolor but the materials are kinda expensive tbh hahaha. I feel like I could improve on my skill, I just haven’t tried it yet. So winning this giveaway would be really helpful for me to start on improving my watercolor skills.

  377. Brian Avecilla
    February 3, 2016 at 1:17 am

    I want to broaden my skills as an artist. I am using watercolor as my medium for a year now and it is a very good medium that anyone can enjoy. Although, using this medium you don’t only need a skill but also a good equipment in order to bring out the best of your artwork. I also think that this moleskine notebook would be a very good one to try that watercolor and paper combination. And I see this as a chance to further enhance my skills in using watercolor and ink as my main mediums.
    Plus, this is too costly for a student like me, winning in this giveaway would be a very big help. yay! :D

    Hi, I’m Angel. I have been interested in these stuffs sush as typography, sketching, drawing mandala, and more. My only way to learn is through tutorials like yours and many more artists. I will be using the Moleskin pad for my these newly sparked interests of mine. I never owned a Moleskin for one.

    I think appropriate materials can motivate me more to these stuffs. It will not just be a pasttime but a hobby which I could carry anywhere I feel like doing it even if I am in the toilet.

  379. TC Morados
    February 3, 2016 at 2:21 am

    I am an architecture student and having a moleskine pad for myself would be a great use for my studies. New materials to explore on gives me that artsy motivation to work better. Sketching and drafting on other pads doesn’t seem to fit me, just like you, I love to spice up my time with sceneries, architectural settlements, and random object whenever I’m not in mood for letters. Moleskine might be just the right one for me ❤

    I’ll be using the Moleskine pad for my sketches, I usually draw people and anime characters and I think the it will be amazing to have it as my sketch pad. I also want to experiment with watercolors since I usually use colored pencils only for my drawings. I want to win it because I’ll be more inspired in doing my drawings with this pad.

    I hope I could win this contest because I’ve always been interested in doing watercolor paintings however, I don’t have the materials to practice my skills in watercolor.

    If I ever win, I’ll use it to paint portraits of people as well as landscapes because that’s what interests me a lot. Also, I’ll try doing some watercolor calligraphy! I promise to always have the time to improve my art skills. :)

    I’d love to go back to watercolor painting since my job has taken most of my time in doing so. I guess owning a good quality watercolor pad will be a great way to get back on track. I’d really love to practice my craft once again. Nothing beats how serene and awesome it feels in watching the colors make a black and white sketch come to life.

    If I win the moleskin, it would be a first for me to use one. I’ve often heard about it but no chance to buy one since I’m broke. hehe. I’ve become fascinated with lettering and travelling so if I win, I would be using it for my travel journal and lettering art. Though since it would be my first one, it would be a little bit hard to choose as a practice material. If I’m fortunate to win one, I’ll be able to know what the fuss about the moleskin is all about and finally choose to use moleskin all throughout. ^___^v crossing my fingers to win this time.

    Hi Abbey Sy! You’re my favorite hand letterer. I discovered your works early 2015 and got into art real quick, you are an inspiring person. I would use that Moleskine Pad (if given the chance to win) for improving my Watercolor skills and inking skills, at first, I really hated watercolor, it annoyed me so much because I sometimes use too much water, but then my sister gave me watercolor pads in sheets, I realized that I didn’t hate watercolor itself, I hated the paper I was using. I really wanted to try to own a Moleskine Pad but it is a bit expensive. I am still young and hoping to pursue a degree in art. I want to win that Moleskine Pad because I believe it would help me improve my skills in hand lettering especially in watercolor and ink. I was so sad when I didn’t win your previous giveaway but then I saw this post! I hope I win this time! ☺️ Thank you for inspiring me to love art just as how you love it! 💖

    This Moleskine pad would be great for my calligraphy/lettering journey! Since I’m trying out different media (ink, watercolor, markers), I find it hard to look for a paper that would be great for all (and is also good to the budget). Thanks for this giveaway Ms. Abbey! *calls all gods and goddess*

    Hi Abbey! :) I’m Jerryca a writer by day and an artist in my dreams. I was planning to build up my portfolio of watercolor paint as inspired by artists in different social media sites today. I was really astonished to see your work of art and other artists who create a lot of stuff for people to see. It’s really a great thing that you guys share you artworks online. Because of that I get to see more inspiration and ideas from you. Anyways, I really wanted to build again my skills in arts, maybe through painting and calligraphy.

    If I’m going to win in this giveaway, I’m planning to use it as my very first sketch and watercolor paint portfolio. I do hope I win this contest! Grateful to meet you through your blog posts, social media, and especially through your painting. God bless you always!

    I wanted to win the Moleskine pad to practice and enhance my inner cretivity. Since I was a little kid. I was fascinated by people who has an eye for art and creative things. That’s when I started this hobby. I know I’m not like other great artists. But, I know now that I don’t need to be better than them. I just need to have a heart for this passion. That’s why I wanted to enhance my skills more. To show my family and others that this craft isn’t just a hobby but it’s also another world for me. A world where I can express myself without thinking what others would say, a life that I wish the whole world can see. Because I believe that by painting and through the use of arts. I can release billions of words without saying them. I really hope I could win but if not, I still wanna thank you for inspiring many people with your art. You may not speak using words. But, you speak volumes. Some people just need an eye to see that <3

    I’ve always wanted to start drawing and painting again but because my budget doesn’t allow me to, I can’t. Maybe winning can help me start what I love to do.

    I will be using the Moleskine Pad as a journal notebook this 2016 in which I will use watercolor/ink for my entries. I’ve been using planners for the past years but this year, I wanted to challenge myself. I really want to win this giveaway because it is hard to find an inexpensive notebook that could handle watercolor. I just started watercolor painting/lettering last year and since then it has become my stress reliever. Whenever I feel frustrated and stressed with my freelance work and whatevers, I would really find time to paint. And I believe with the help of the Moleskine Pad, I could improve my artworks.

  412. Christine Andrada
    February 3, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    If I will be giving the chance to win, I will be using the Moleskin Pad in compiling my artworks which is I wanted to do because the Moleskine Pad is so expensive but then in exchange of the whole Pad being so expensive the quality of the paper is so good to use and as a beginner of being a letterer I really wanted to improve my works most especially when it comes to illustrations. Why do I want to win? Its because as an art lover compiling your works with a good quality of materials that you are using would definitely help you/me in making my works more look good and better.

    February 3, 2016 at 7:41 pm

    Hello Ms. Abbey! I would use this for practicing waterbrush lettering and to improve my hand lettering. And if I will win, I would also use this for watercolor painting. As what you’ve written here on the blog, this moleskine pad is good for both watercolor, inks and pens, it is not easily deformed if you used too much water so I really want to have this pad. Plus it’s very handy! I really want to win this pad so I can keep my artworks in one notebook which is good so I can see if there’s a progress in my works. Thank you! :)

    Hello Ms. Abbey!! Well first of all, I just wanna say that I love your artworks so much, it hurts. I really want to learn how to do “art” but I’m a bit hesitant to try. I don’t think I’ll be able to do it nicely or just as good as the guys stated above! I’m doing a bit of calligraphy now. I only took one workshop and that’s just it. I wanted to try the watercolor and decided I would enroll myself in a painting class, just to have a basic knowledge. I’m still not sure when to start, but for now, I’m practicing my calligraphy skill with nibs. And I would be really happy to use this Moleskine pad for practicing. I really wanted this type of pads because it’s so compatible with any kinds of writing and painting and drawing. I want to win this because, I’m really trying to find new art hobbies and this pad is just the thing I want for it. Thank you!

    Practicing watercolor requires a lot of paper which are quite pricey compared to normal copy papers. Winning such precious item would help me hone my skills in using watercolor as a medium.

    Lettering/Calligraphy has been my passion ever since and in addition to this, I’m also enthralled to draw my dream destinations and places that I’ve been through. I wanna fill up those pages of Moleskine pad with my inspirational thoughts, life changing memories, and dreams that would touch people’s lives and complete me as myself. I wanna win this giveaway for me to practice and improve more my skills in calligraphy and arts. Surely, this would be a big help in making me progress and creating artworks. :) Thank you so much for this opportunity and for inspiring particularly us, aspiring designers and letterers. Thank you ate Abbey ^_^

    Art has been my passion despite the path I took for my career is different. You, Miss Abbey Sy, have inspired me to broaden my horizons in art. Lately, I have been doing mixed media art ( a combination of my own drawings/paintings and some digital elements) so the fact that you are giving away such items is an opportunity for me to experiment more with the kind of art that I want. Plus, Moleskine brand is hard to find in Bacolod . Hue hue Thank you :D

    Ever since I saw your artworks and calligraphy, I was really inspired to learn about painting and lettering. Although I am still a beginner, I really want to improve. Actually, I started taking landscape architecture class just to develop my skill. And if I will be given a chance to win this Moleskine pad, I would really really use it to practice and learn. I know that this would help me a lot. Thank you for inspiring me and all the others out there :D

    I admit that I’m not a fan of Moleskine since it’s really kinda costy for a notebook, but I’m joining this contest in behalf of my boyfriend since he’s a really great art student with a lot of great ideas. I kinda find him having difficulties in communicating with me through words, and I would like him to have such an art material because I hope that instead of releasing those ideas and feelings in words, he may express them through art (in which I would really REALLY love the most)

    And, It kinda sounds nice to have it as a valentine’s day gift as well ;)

  427. Melody Liz Espinosa
    February 3, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    If luck brings me the new Moleskine pad.. I would definitely start practicing hand lettering. Being a WAHM is stressful at times, thus a me time doing some artsy stuff would be a breather.

    I wanted to win because I want to give it as a gift to my best friend’s sister. I knew how much she lover art and I’ve seen her passion and how she is so driven. I hope that this will help her to express herself more.

These past few days, I’ve been practicing my skills and improving them. I’ve been an enthusiast for days and I’m hoping that my skills would be better. Because of alot of practice, crisis na sa mga materials, Nauubos na yung watercolor ko as well as my watercolor pads and papers. I am using watercolor for my works because I like their effect and they look so amazing because they flow so freely so they look so gorgeous, anyways, I would be so happy If I will win (hopeful) and btw, this giveaway is so awesome really and thank you for inspiring me alot, Abbey sy <3 :) xoxo God Bless! <3

    I’m new to watercolor painting and I’m hoping to have a pad of my own instead of just rolls of paper to practice on. Also, Moleskin is one of the best brands with quality paper that’s good for painting! I wanna use it also to practice with my calligraphy.

    February 4, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    I love Moleskine because it is so compact, and now that I know there’s a Watercolor Pad version — I love it even MORE! I’m a bit guilty because I haven’t been practicing my painting skills (I don’t even know if I can call it a skill because I was just starting and then I suddenly became too busy to improve what I already know) but if I win, I can finally continue painting and practice even in transit! And that would be awesome! :D <3 Thanks for this giveaway!

    Hi miss Abbey! Thank you for this wonderful giveaway you are sharing with us. I’ve been following and admiring your works ever since Miss Kaila(rainbowholic) introduce you on her blog/Instagram/Facebook… I am really into art(any forms of arts) and had the opportunity to pursue this dream when I was in college. But after graduation, I’ve come to a point were I wasn’t able to do art and eventually got depressed. But thru you and miss kaila’s advice and words of encouragement, I brought back the old me who is thirsty for art and dreaming big. I started painting again. Would love to document my everyday life and journey as an artist in a moleskin and share it. Moleskin is not available in where I live but I hope they could bring it here someday. Hoping to win in your giveaway. 😁

    And good luck to everyone! 😊

    I’ve been in love with art since like forever! Though I’m not really good in drawing, I love to write – poems, haikus, what-nots…Since Calligraphy is so in right now, I’d really love to learn more about it…I’m amazed on how you and the others wrote freely and effortless! I hope I get to win in this giveaway promo! XOXO

    I’ve been practicing watercolor drawing and background painting – as a supplement for my papercuts.
    It’s hard to find the perfect watercolor paper cause others just smudge and leave tracks of drenched paper.
    Having a watercolor pad (and a Moleskine one, for that matter) would be amazing – less drenched pad for a wet on wet painting!

    Since I was in elementary, all I’ve wanted to do is to sink in to the magical world of art. I love art. And when I learned about moleskin notebooks when I was in high school(I’m a college student now :D), I’ve always dreamt of having one. It’s like having a haven for my ideas, imaginations, creativity, and memories. That’s why I want to have one. I want to record my life in it, every moment, every memories I want to keep. I want to have this poor memories to have another home beside my head and my heart. I want to ink or paint or draw it to a moleskin notebook and keep sharing it to other people. I just started keeping tracks of what I’ve done(you can see it on my blog. huehuehue :D) on this old notebook I got as a gift, and since it was an old notebook, many pages are already torn and I’m running out of pages. :( So I really really want to win that Moleskin notebook. And it would be heaven coming down to Earth if ever I would win it. Thank you for reading this and hope you’ll pick me. :) God bless! Have a good day ahead! :D

    Tell me, what will you be using this Moleskine pad for? :) And why do you want to win?

    There was a time and place in my childhood when the artistic dream was frowned upon and discouraged. It is the same now. Yet now, I am less fearful of the consequences, and will pursue art to where it shall lead me. I shall use the Moleskine to this end. To win is a sign of fate siding with me in this goal.

    Hello Ms. Abbey Sy!

    I WOULD TOTALLY LOVE TO WIN THIS GIVEAWAY! I started drawing when I was about 4 or 5 years old and until now that I’m 15 years old, I still have that passion with art because it’s one of the ways where I can freely shower all my emotions and stress on. Painting is another form of art that I’ve been so obsessed with especially on watercolors because there’s something about it that makes it different from the other types of materials/paints/colors that I use which makes it easier to use and blend for me. I wanted to win this giveaway because I want to have a taste of what kind of materials you use (of course because you are one of my inspirations on art) and I would use this moleskin sketch pad as an instrument wherein I can put my feels/reflections by painting/drawing/writing and I want to practice the art of handwriting like the way you do in the best materials you use like this one because these are kinda pricey for me to buy. :( I hope I can do the creative handwriting like you even though I’m just a beginner. Someday, I hope to travel like the way you do now and I learned from this certain blog that I should start a journal so I can reminisce the moments in the future. This has been an awesome opportunity for me to win (hopefully, I’ll win) and I won’t let this moment pass because I just simply can’t. Art never leaves me unlike any other human beings do, in good times and bad times. It’s my stress reliever. It’s what I do when I’m angry instead of punching the walls, etc. It makes me happy. It’s art. My everything.

    Keep inspiring! Thank you!

    Since high school I’ve always wanted to buy a moleskin but the price won’t let me and there were a lot of things like project materials to spend my money on. Now that I am a college student, I still am not able to acquire one. If I were to win the moleskin, I would use it not only for calligraphic purpose but also for the furtherance of my ability with portraits, landscapes, and for my imagination to travel places unknown to man.

    Hello Ms. Abbey Sy, i’ve been using moleskine notebooks for years already as my everyday journal and notebook in school but I didn’t know that it have a watercolor pad that is as the same size as the notebook, and seeing it in your blog i am in love with it. As an architecture student I do want a handy watercolor notebook that is handy and that I can bring everywhere especially in school during my free times and in lectures that requires me to draw and sketch some buildings so I would greatly appreciate if i would be the one you’ll choose for the giveaway so I can practice painting, sketching and doing calligraphy as well through your calligraphy book, i am inspired by your artworks and how well and great you’ve been already at a young age collaborating with many artist and well known art brands. Keep inspiring us and Godbless! :)

    I always noticed you using Moleskine pad when your having illustrations for your travel reviews and it’s on your list of highly recommended art materials,so as an aspiring Calligrapher/Letterer/Typographer/Illustrator, in short a very frustrated artist,I got curious and searched for the pad but sadly it’s a little bit expensive. They say that not following your passion is a suicide,but because suicide is illegal,I’m taking my chances to win the Moleskine pad in this giveaway to pursue the dreams that slowly fading away.

    I want to win this contest because I want to experience having my very own Moleskine, and because it is given

    Hello Ms. Abbey!

    I’ve been looking for Moleskin Watercolor pads here in Cebu but I really couldn’t find one. Even the cool water colors aren’t available. I have always love art since I was young. And I’ve been practicing watercolor recently. I have to buy big watercolor pads to practice and its not really handy. Just like you, I would like to travel and bring watercolors and a small watercolor pad with me. (Well, I’m inspired by you po Ms. Abbey :) ) I want to remember the places I’ve been to by painting it. And I couldn’t do that because I have no small water color pads with me. Ahhhhhhhhhh! I’m so excited when I saw this post and I so want to win your give away!! <3 I want to do more drawing, and painting!

    Thank you and God bless you always Ms. Abbey! <3 <3

    just like a struggling artist who aims for perfection and get frustrated when you didnt get the look the you envision, a moleskine sketchbook is a great help in order for us to achieve progress instead of perfection. draw lang, tuloy lang, pinta lang! pasasaan ba at magiging perfect din yan sa mga mata mo at sa bandang huli makikita rin yan ng mga tao.
    i wanna draw for myself, i wanna draw for fulfilling the frustrated artist in me.

    A good canvas paper boosts my creativity side everytime and everywhere. The feeling of giving life to a blank canvas is all that I need to create a masterpiece of my own. I got most of my paintings from pictures inside books and sketch whatever I imagine. Please let me win that Moleskin watercolor pad you’re giving away. It would be the best thing if ever I win it. God bless!

    I would love to use Moleskin for my watercolor artworks because of this review. It’s exciting how you say it handles water well.
    But most especially I would love to give it to my boyfriend. It was his birthday last Feb 2. But it’s never too late to give a gift. Besides, Valentines is coming.
    He is my inspiration in doing art especially watercolor. He encouraged me to start with this medium together with him. It had been a great art year for the both of us last 2015.
    I had an attempt of making him a (DIY) sketchbook of this size. He’s still using it now but he’s having trouble with the water piercing/leaking through the stitches i made, spoiling the other pages :(
    If he receives this Moleskin, I’m sure he will cry of joy!
    For another great art year with my love, I’d really love to win this. <3

    He does portraits on Berkeley pad (180 gsm only) but he still manages to make them beautiful.
    I’m so proud of him and of course i will always be his number 1 fan. I wish he could really have this Moleskin <3

    Art is my lifeblood. Even if I took up engineering in college, I never left my true love which is painting. I would really really really love to win your Moleskin water color pad and the painting kit that comes with it. I think it’d be really awesome. I would start using this new medium in painting because I only use poster paints for my works. Thank you very much for your wonderful giveaway! I am so hoping that I’d win this! It’ll be a great birthday gift for me too! Love lots!

    I have joined almost all of your giveaways and contest and I always feel sad and devastated everytime I don’t see my name in the list of winners. I always remind myself na “Huli na tong sasalihan mo ah?! tama na malas ka talaga sa mga ganito” Pero I’ll just see myself writing another bunch of reasons why I should win that price. I chose to say thia things rather than ranting why I should win this one. Because most probably you know me already I’m a high school student and a frustrated calligrapher. Probably

    I plan to travel a lot this year, and while I always love to journal my adventures, I’ve never tried illustrating them. This Moleskine will be a big step forward, and a neat way to start a new tradition. I love how it’s handy and convenient, and works well with my pocket watercolor kit. :D

    Ever since I was little, I was drawn to the simple complexity of art. I believe it to be a paradox – for one so simple can be so complex at the same time. However, despite of all the efforts I took in the field of art when I was younger, I was never encouraged. I began to slowly drift away from my passion.

    This year though, 2016 – I found myself scribbling in the back pages of my notebooks again. I found myself wandering around the corners of a school supplies shop wherein they sell a lot of creative craft products. I keep on saving up for hand-lettering books (like yours, ms. Abbey!). I bought watercolors the other day and kept on splashing them on my scratch papers. I felt that I was starting over again. That I needed to go back to the familiar and warm air of my passion which is art.

    Then maybe…

    Well not maybe, but FOR SURE, I will draw what I want. Write what I want. Paint what I want. And create what I want. No matter what the people say about it.

    That is why it’d be totally great for me if I would win the Moleskin since it would be such a great starter kit for me to go back to my journey of being not totally a professional artist, but an artist in heart. :)

    I will be using the Moleskine pad for my painting, for a new start of my watercolor painting journey. I tried watercolor but i got a hard time when it comes to the paper i’m using, it’s always hard for me to adjust. I was looking for papers suitable for watercolor but it seems like these papers does not suit the watercolor. T_T There was a time i discovered moleskine, it was defined to have a great quality. I was looking for it in my place but i can’t find one. T_T I really love your art, the way you draw and color. It was so awesomeeee!
    I hope i could win.

    First and foremost, I draw to escape the stress from med school (I’m taking up Dentistry btw).
    I draw but I’m not really good at painting but I’ve started with watercolor. I paint on a sketch pad and it doesn’t seem to work because of the rough surface resulting to a not so good outcome. Well, it’s my fault because I don’t give effort to know what’s good for this and that. But with your recommendation, I’d love to give watercolor and me another shot.

    Like you said: “I believe the best materials bring out your skills more.”

    I also want to start painting my friends this summer as a thank you gift for staying strong with me in facing the difficulties school. This would really make them happy.

    Sorry I made my entry too long. I’d love to receive a gift from your generosity for my birthday this March (it’s been a long time since I’ve received gifts LOL) More love and power to you and your creativity!

    Hello po ate Abbey, I’ve been an avid fan of your beautiful works since 2015, I always check your instagram and your facebook page to keep in touch with your latest adventures and to be updated of your artworks. Thanks to you, I am willfull and motivated to continue and to improve my passion in calligraphy, I’m new to this kind of art and also because of you, I saw how amazing calligraphy can be :) I love to travel and I always keep my journal and my art pens in handy because I tend to write or doodle whenever I’m on a long trip. I hope that I get to win the Moleskine pad and the watercolors you’ll also include in the giveaway, it’s nice to receive it from you who also uses the same mediums and the same pad. It is a great help to me since I love watercolor and I am really trying every single day to improve more and more each day because I dream to be as successful like you just by doing something you are passionate and you love is really awesome! Thanks for being an inspiration to us, young calligraphy artists Miss Abbey :) Continue to brush those letters and paint the whole world! God bless! Xx

    Maayong adlaw, Miss Abbey!

    I am Vanessa, 29, and a RN. I have come across calligraphy since last year but was fascinated with lettering when I was still in grade school. I came across your work at instagram through some calligraphers as well. Your art works are indeed inspiring for beginners and lettering enthusiasts such as myself.
    I hope I will have the chance to win the MOLESKIN journal so I can immortalize my solo backpacking travels through letters and colors! This 2016 I have already started with my TRIP JOURNAL and I can’t wait to reborn my blog and with my MOLESKIN to add along my my rendezvous! ♡♡♡

    Keep up the great work and thank you for being such an inspiration to many.

    Cheers!! Xx

  493. Rusty
    February 5, 2016 at 9:51 pm

    February 5, 2016 at 10:44 pm

    Hi Ate Abbey! I’m currently a highschooler and I got inspired by my cousin, who does calligraphy and lettering, and of course you! I would be using the watercolor pad to be able to practice writing and so that i can exercise my creativity. I would use it to write down quotes for the day based on my emotions or how my day went. I would want to win because I do not have a watercolor pad and I really want to practice my writing style especially for watercolor. Thank you!!

    I’ve loved Moleskine notebooks ever since I got my first one and started writing on it. Whenever I get the budget, I always go for this brand because everything I write on it just seems better. Adding a watercolor pad to my set of Moleskines would be awesome since I’ve also started watercolor lettering and would love to start illustrating too. My problem now is that the pads I use just get soggy and the pigments just don’t come out right. I’m hoping Moleskine can help me in this.

    I would love to win this giveaway because I would love to continue learning to use watercolor more. And I can’t learn if I don’t have the proper tools.

    Thanks, Abbey and Moleskine PH.

    Hi Abbey! I’ve been seeing your giveaways and other promos via instagram and I never really had the courage to join one— afraid that I will not make it— but today, I’m ready to take a chance and accept whatever the result would be. I’ve been your fan since I saw your book (ABC’s of Hand lettering) and visited your IG accounts and blog, actually I’m one of those tambay sa instagram mo. 😳😉 Your hands work like magic and I can’t help myself but admire you. I’m just an amateur in watercoloring and lettering and I know that if ever I win this contest, I will not just win the material things but it will also boost my esteem and have the motivation to do a lot of artworks. It is my outlet from the hustle and bustle of my college life, I find serenity in making artworks— makes me feel like I’m in an entire new world.

    Before, I never thought that lettering and watercoloring will make such big influence nowadays, I thought I was the only one loving these stuff, but when I found you, you made me realize that lettering is not just a hype— it is so much more than that— it’s passion. I am so grateful that you existed because for me, I think you opened a new world where I can fit in. 😳☺Continue to be an inspiration to all of us! ✨

    P.S. I hope someday I can see you personally! Thank you Abbey! 💙

    I’ll use the Moleskine watercolor pad as a start of my journey for art and writing. I’m into writing, now I want to engage myself in art also for I know it will be a great adventure to try that’s why if I ever win I would be glad to use the pad as my book for my daily trips and experiences about my love for writing and now for the love for art.

    February 6, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    If ever I got the chance to win the Moleskine pad, I would try my utmost best to enhance my lettering skills and also drawing skills. I’ve loved watercolor ever since I wanted to try hand lettering and entering an art college in my university. I’ve always got to lay my works on a normal sketchpad and I’ve always wanted to buy a watercolor pad but I don’t have the “cha-ching” to have one, considering that I’m a college student and my family’s not very wealthy and my siblings has to suffice their needs for school. And maybe I kept on restraining myself from eyeing on them. And spending.

    With my sketchpads, it is really a go for ink and pencil but whenever I try to apply watercolor its just lumps and it wont be pleasing. I would love to have my first watercolor pad to be in great quality like Moleskine to showcase my work more neatly and legibly.

    Thank you, Ms. Abbey for putting up this giveaway for hopefuls like me! [[skedaddles away]]

    This would help me compile most of my watercolor works and help me improve my skills since moleskine paper can hold a lot of water without it wrinkling up or bleeding too much on the page. And this would help me conserve more paper since moleskine is rather too expensive for me to buy for supply.

  507. marian
    February 6, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    Aspiring writer here! I love these notebooks, but I know many people say they are expensive. I can use the notebook to write down any of the following: potential names for characters in my novel; the name of a new color I just discovered; interesting conversations I overhear; capture ideas for blog posts; jot down poems I come up with; record recipes I super want to try; or just to capture random thoughts and insights. You know, kind of like Da Vinci’s (habit) notebook. Also, I’m a bookworm so it’ll be perfect for me to keep track of the ideas in the books I read, whenever I’m reading a book it’s a great idea to write a summary of the book, and to keep track of the ideas contained in the book which I find interesting. Doing it in note form, or create mind maps. In essence, I’ll be turning a notebook into a knowledge reservoir.

    Way back 2011, when I was still in 5th grade was the first time i ever saw your art. It was on your tumblr blog when you were still selling handmade products on your shop called “H.e.a.r.t.” Your art was very awe-inspiring and the thought of having your own shop from handmade creation generated the “inner artist” inside me. I started admiring your art since and always wanted to become an artist myself. I would grab the cheapest watercolor paints (because I didn’t think back then that the pigment quality would matter so much) and pieces of cardboards (hindi pa uso ang watercolor paper haha) in the nearest department store and started painting. Your art experience was one of the things that motivated me to do more even if it made me feel very ambitious because I was still a 10 year-old kid back then.

    As I went through my journey, I’ve found that quality made products makes a huge difference. Since our hometown is very far from art shops (there’s no National Book Store here!), I would research through the internet for online shops in the Philippines. The art materials that I would adore were always very expensive. I’m still a scholar and I depend mostly with the monthly allowance from the government for my daily expenditures, which is just enough for everything so I couldn’t save much from it. Moleskine is one good brand that I’ve bumped into before, but looking at its price, made me think nah, I’ll stick to cheap watercolors.

    I never had the courage to participate in giveaways like these before, because I was always uneasy with disappointments knowing that there is only a very little chance of winning this giveaway. Now in 2016, I thought to myself that if I would win this one, it would be a good sweet sixteen advance birthday gift to myself. Winning one of these Moleskine watercolor pads means a lot to me, and if ever I become a lucky winner, I’ll make sure that this valuable thing would be put to good use. This will surely help me improve my art skills (not trying to sound conceited, lol) by boosting my esteem and motivating me to do more in this passion of mine in art.

    Hi Abbey Sy! I really do hope that you are reading this and I wish to speak a lot of things with you and do a lot of things with you one day. Thank you for sharing your life as an artist with us. I hope that you continue inspiring a lot of individuals like us!! All the love <3

    Good day Ms. Abbey, as well as to Moleskine!
    Art has been my passion for almost 14 years. Yes, I started since I was 5, i’m just the typical “Gusto kong maging painter paglaki ko” 90’s kid. Art (of all kinds) is an outlet for me to express my feelings – also, my personal Life Saver. It’s the open door that lets me meet new people, be with good friends and inspire other artists that i meet. Art is my friend. And right now, after all the ups and downs of my life, I still continue my journey with my pal to a quest for knowing each other more. I’m into watercolour medium as of the moment. Been applying to any possible giveaways locally and internationally. Financially speaking, my pocket’s in the ER but I want to do any means possible for me to strengthen my bond with Art. I hope I’ll be able to get this one, fortunately. I expresses my deep gratitude to y’all. Thank you!
    Sincerely yours,
    Amelia :)

And this moleskine watercolor album is really perfect for my hobby because it’s really handy and i can bring it with me anywhere. And also what you’ve said above about the best materials bring out your skills more is really true, but those materials are kind of pricey too huhu. Kaya sana kahit eto na lang ang karamay ko this valentines day cos im in a love- hate relationship with calligraphy hahaha. Anyways thank you for hosting this giveaway and and keep inspiring people! Still hoping that one day i can meet you in person so you can sign my copy of your book and watercolor pad. #probinsyanaproblems 😄

    I am a self-proclaimed artist who is still on the road to finding my own style. I believe that the different environments I choose to live in and explore are huge factors in ultimately defining the kind of artist I’m going to be. Handy art materials such as the Moleskine Watercolor album will help me translate inspirations I could possibly get from anywhere into beautiful art. Also, I’ve been longing to have one but my wallet doesn’t permit me huhu :( Really crossing my fingers on this one!

    Hi Abbey! This Moleskin pad would be my travel buddy! I really love travel friendly painting supplies, be it watercolors, brushes and other compact materials, and this pad would complete the set. I paint anywhere and everywhere I could. Lastly, I was on search for this for the longest time, that I’m planning to have it shipped already when I saw this. If chosen, my wallet would save a lot. ❤️

    I’ve been searching for a great notebook for sketching and from what you’ve described, this sounds like it may be the one! I do a lot of sketching with pens, which are wonderful, but I’ve been wanting to expand my daily sketching explorations into more loose, elegant, water-based mediums like ink and watercolors.

    I would love to win that A5 Moleskin notebook because I would love to use something small and nifty for my quick watercolor sketches. I’m currently using an A4 size Canson watercolor paper and whenever I need a small space to do concept sketches, I cut the paper–with much regret. I need a paper that doesn’t warp and fibers don’t come off when you use a little too much water. A paper that’s great on both dry brush and wet-on-wet techniques. Apparently, based on the reviews by the artists you featured, it seemed like a nice paper with a nice texture to work on.

  520. Rochelle Dycoco

    Hi Ate Abbey! I’m only 16 yo and I’ll be in Senior High next school year and I choose to get Arts & Design track and this water color pad will help me through out my school life. This will help me to bring out the best that I can give. I really love drawing, sketching, painting, but I’m not that good in painting because I’m lack of materials, and this will help me to practice and improve my skills and be the best that I can be. This will also help me to be more confident to show my artistic skills to everyone because I’m not that confident in showing my arts. I want to be like you someday! Thank you for this giveaway!

    I just started calligraphy last year & I don’t have enough funds yet to support this passion. I joined your giveaway last year in collaboration with Ate Tipsy but I was not that luck enough to won any of the prizes hahahaha so I’m trying my luck this time. If ever I won this Moleskine watercolour pad I will use it as a part of my not so starter pack for my calligraphy career charot! This watercolour pad would inspire me more to pursue this passion of mine & of course I’d like to win this giveaway because you’re the one who’ll give that pad. Walang halong kyeme Ate Abbey, I was really inspired when I saw your works at Ate Bianca’s book and that’s where I started loving calligraphy/hand lettering.

    February 7, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    Through painting and lettering, I have challenged myself to constantly improve myself. It has been a way for me to channel my feelings and turning them into art. I truly believe that that is what art truly is, showing the feelings that can’t be turned into words. If I would luckily be picked out of the crowd to have this Moleskine Watercolor Pad, I would really appreciate it and really be inspired to keep going.
    P.S. Even if I don’t get picked, I’d still support you and your work! God bless :)

    I want to have that moleskin (badly) because of its super fine quality, cant afford coz sakit sa bulsa, plus the experience of winning a giveaway online. Ohhh heaven i really dreamed of having that when im on that stage of having a stable job, but why not having that when im just studying an art program to have a great career for my future. It’ll will make me more inspired and ill make lots of artworks when i have that thing on my hands. Im sometimes uninspired bc of my personal problems and i kinda hate that thing bc I cant stop overthinking, maybe this one can help me improve the way i think about life, how i am so lucky to be living in this world.. Lucky, to have these great artists everywhere who feels the same way like me and maybe others, Im looking forward for this giveaway Ms. Abbey. I may not won those christmas giveaways recently, but im crossing my fingers until it hurts just to have that baby. Just for once please. Just once. Thank you in advance :)
