I’ve never been able to keep up with all the sketch challenges out there floating around week to week, much less the tiny pieces of paper that I jot down sketches on. Are you seeing a pattern here? You got it! I can’t remember anything unless I write it down.
Ta-da!!!, a new sketch book. I’ve put together several of these recently, but they did not work out they way I wanted them to. The last one was too big while the previous one didn’t have enough room to write down the particulars. So far so good on this design – this is a book that I can take with me or can leave laying open on my work table; it’s not too big and not too small. At the top is the front cover and the picture below is the inside cover.
I started out with a notebook that I purchased at Target that was 11" tall x 5" wide. Once I had the size, I drew the two types of pages I wanted in the journal and ran them through my printer, double sided. Using my Bind-It-All for the first time, I punched the pages. Then I pried open the o-wires and removed the contents of the notebook, covered the outsides of the notebook with design paper, inserted two dividers and reinserted the o-wire using the Bind-It-All to secure it properly. The book is divided into two parts – the first for recording weekly challenges and the second part is for my own sketches. The last embellishment was ribbon, two prima flowers secured by a K & Co button brad and chipboard letters.
Maybe now that I won’t have to spend too much time spinning my wheels, I’ll get to participate in more challenges!
