Note to self: Wait until paint is dry to take photos
The bottom left is a very subtle yellow/green streak once dry and I managed to get the shadow of my head in the pic
I entered to contribute to the Sketchbook Project. http://arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject
My sketchbook arrived and was less than satisfactory. The paper was too thin and the sketchbook was constructed rather cheap. So I pulled all sorts of bits and pieces from my art stash and put it all together. You can join in and discuss it on the Craftalong board http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353126.0
I love it JUST as it is. I almost want to keep it the way it is. I did choose the theme "this is not a sketchbook" after all.
Some of the pages:
I kept the cover of the original notebook and made it the back cover. That way the barcode on the back is left intact and where it's supposed to be. I made one too many holes so my binding is really messy. By the time I realized my mistake I was more concerned with stability than looks. Front cover is also made in a pamphlet style.
Obligatory binding shot.
Other pages include canvas paper, gessoed drawing paper, drawing paper, watercolor paper, and a few other materials left to be revealed later
