In my last post I mentioned that I had a new sketchbook that I have been having fun with.
It is a smallish book that I made,
and is bursting with pages ready for creative play.
I tea stained the pages before putting the book together.
I decorated a few pages a bit using my typewriter and some handcarved stamps.
I also decided to make some pages smaller then others.... this may have been a mistake.
Some of the pages turned out so beautifully just as they are
that I may have a hard time adding to them.
My plan is to add little bits of paper or stamps or ink or paint
that I am using in different projects,
or that are on my desk and I don't want to throw away.
Once the bits are added I will go back in
with pen or pencil or paint or paper to complete the page.
I never know who will come to play.
This page has a small page on the right hand side.
Which means I need to keep the colour and bits at the top and bottom
of the larger page in mind as I create the next page
..... this is okay, just a bit more difficult.
This project has been inspired by many different creations I have seen online,
such as the amazing sketchbooks of Lynne Hoppe
and the whimsical work of Judy Shreve
And even though I have only completed four pages so far,
I can't believe how much fun I am having.
