sketchbook covered

Here are photos of the sketchbook which I covered with washi and fragments of the papers that I had prepared in our class. I added a few details with oil pastels and gel pens and then sealed it with gloss medium. Above is the front cover. Below is the back cover (my favourite) followed by details.

mansuetude...it is the thread that speaks to me as well...like a wound, vulnerable yet being cared for.

poetic artist...so glad you like it!

suzi...thanks so much for all the great techniques you taught us. I really hope the photos make a good case for a larger room next year! Best of luck!
