I've been working away on my 2012 sketchbook project, finishing up the 3rd section of folded pages (out of 4). This section was painted with purple Lumiere. I cut circles earlier in it while working on the second section and I know some of you wondered what I would do with them? Here is my diary of sorts to show you: in process photos and some notes.
|I cut out a vintage postcard image in the same circle size |
|I glued it in place and also stitched around it and on the page|
|I added more rubber stamping to peek out through the circles I cut|
|Now you see the postcard image with the page unfolded|
|The page is tucked back in again and more stamping is added|
|This is the back of where I sewed my images.|
I've added a painting of Lenna Glackens, by my great uncle, William Glackens.
|This shows the next section coming up, brown . . . I have added the cut out|
purple circle to this section of pages!
|The purple section folded up, next to the brown section |
|journaling in my sketchbook |
|the cover, with my theme spelled out|
|Just a couple of more views of the way the pages fold & spread out . . .|
That's it for now! I have one section, the brown & gold section left to complete before sending this sketchbook in to become part of the Sketchbook Project 2012 hosted by the Art House Co-op
