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

  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.
