Summer Sketchbooks #2

Both covers of Sketchbook #1 have now been sprayed with fixative...

....and so has the front cover of Sketchbook #2 (the larger one).



This one is 11" x 8" (closed)...

...and consists of six long pages bound.

Each page is made of two sheets of paper stitched together...

...some of which have been left open at one (or both) ends to make pockets for treasures.

I think I'll put some reinforced holes in there somewhere...

...to keep things safe with some ties.


I have had a wonderful time choosing threads...

...hopefully in the right colours for my "holiday theme"...

....winding them onto bits of plastic straws...

....and bagging them to pack into my "art box" :-)




I always end up taking FAR too much stuff away with me...

...so, this year, I'm TRYING to pare down to the ABSOLUTE ESSENTIALS!!

There's a whole week to go yet...

...this plan could still fall apart!!

You are so organised. My holiday sketching will be a few meagre pencils thrown together at he last minute - if I remember!
