I started my sketchbook still without a theme in mind but feeling compelled to get out the little Olivetti typewriter my sister gave me.
And that is where the first page came from
I love collage but at this point I felt more attracted to textiles than drawing so out came an old embroidery booklet that I have been wanting to cut up for a while and that started me off. Next I dug out the piece of antique crochet and that was the start of it, my first pages.
You can see a little cut out piece of text at the top of the book, it says
"IN THIS BOOK"
that is my theme/title the idea came to me like a bolt out of the blue.
Mo Allan's blank book is on its way to her and I can't wait to see what she does with it.
If you want to join our SKETCHBOOK FRIENDS
then get yourself a book, decide on a theme and do whatever comes naturally to you. Then photograph your pages and either post a link on to this blog or add them to our FLICKR page. You can post as often as you like, whenever you like.
