Project Name: Mini Sketchbooks/Smashbooks for on the go art making and life documenting
When ErinAquaheart and I were at SXSW we found ourselves in dire need and want of drawing materials and journals to add to our experience and do some in the moment smashbooking, but we had decided before hand that we wouldn't bring any sketchbooks or journals because we basically had to live out of our purses for four days and we didn't need any extra stuff. Well, that situation prompted me to make these little bitty take me everywhere little books. I pasted some envelopes in them and some blank ATCs. I gave some of the pages themes and little decorations and left others blank.

For this class I chose to focus on the turn a negative into a positive aspect of the class assignment. ErinAquaheart and I were lucky enough to get to go to the SXSW music festival in Austin at the last minute, but the last minute nature left us with a funding challenge For my assignment I was able to turn a negative into a positive when we stumbled across a "customize your chucks" work shop where you were supposed to buy some converse and then they let you customize them with free art supplies, well our negative of not having the money to buy new shoes turned into a positive when the man in charge let us paint our own shoes for free instead.
