I thought it would be a nice idea if a few of us got together to do sketchbooks in the same way, but instead of sending them off we posted pictures of our pages onto a FLICKR site I would create called SKETCHBOOK FRIENDS.
I've been asked "What sort of book should I use". Its entirely upto the individual. Use any book, any size.
This is the one I have decided on, its 6"x6" spiral bound. I may use it with the spiral at the top.
With a spiral bound book you can snip out the pages to work on them. Great if you use watercolours, collage, stitch or cutwork. It also allows you to choose the order of the pages.
There is a list of possible themes on the Flickr page or make one up of your own.
If you want to join in all you need to do is get a book, choose a theme (If you want one), sign up to Flickr if you have'nt already or just add a link to your blog showing your sketchbook pages in the comments section below.
. There are no deadlines, no weekly/monthly commitments. Just do your book as and when you want.
Well friends I've got plenty of blank pages and I should be setting an example to you all. So sign up for email notification of when Ive been working on my pages. I keep changing my mind about my theme. I might go for "MIX & MATCH" or "PAGE AFTER PAGE" or "TURNING PAGES" or "AS THE MOOD TAKES ME".
Crikey i think I better pull one out of a bag.
Lets see if we can make it work and have some fun doing it.
