The Sketchbook Project [88,89, 90,91,cover, etc]

The last few pages from 'The sketchbook project'. I only tore out one page from the book after the picture went horribly wrong, but rather than chucking it I painted it with green gouache, cut out a sea weed shape and stuck it in the centre of the page above - the ends move about as if they are in water.

I covered the book with an old transfer print [paper painted with transfer paints then ironed/heat pressed onto some other paper, it is normally transferred onto fabric]. I then gave it a couple of coats of acrylic wax to help protect it.

This is the title page at the start of the book. It was also some transfer prints and a fish drawing which I scanned into the computer, combined and added text, the text has also got a reflection but it doesn't show up too well on the image below.

I also included a list of contents.

All the pages of the sketchbook can be seen on the other blog page, see top right


  1. Super book!! you must feel really pleased with the finished article! I posted mine off last week with mixed feelings. Look forward to seeing how the tour goes. Sheila

  2. I love your journal pages, they become so addictive. I'm trying to journal everyday, we'll see if I can keep it up. Thanks for your kind comments too.
