a colorful spread: sketchbook project

My second spread for this project is paper on both sides. I imagine I'll be mixing up paper and fabric, like I usually do . . .


You can click on the pages to enlarge it and read the writing. The circles were drawn with a template and some were colored in with markers. I went a little crazy making circles, but I think it works. The color underneath the circles on the right comes from Spectra Art Tissue. This glossy piece of card stock was the cover paper. On the left is watercolor crayons for the background directly on the pages of the moleskin sketchbook. Very muted because of the paper, but nice. I added a couple of photos of me back when I was 15 and 21. I am the same, just different, at age 53! It feels very good to be working in this sketchbook, that is not a sketchbook! (although, didn't I sketch just a bit here?) I don't have too many plans, but feel that I want to get in here and do things. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.
