After the tour the sketchbooks will have a home in The Brooklyn Art Library. The idea of my journal traveling all over the world and ending up in a library New york..wow! So much fun!
So I ordered my sketchbook and this is what I got:
I made new pages from 300grams watercolorpaper, which can be folded out so I have more space to work on. After having filled all the pages with my collages (what else? -lol-) I want to bind the book again.
The sketchbook has to be back in New York before January 15, so I still have some time to fill the pages. I planned 24 pages but it is possible that I end up with less pages because of the thickness of the pages all together. The sketchbook may not be any thicker than one inch.
Here are the first 8 pages. The first three are finished (for now..maybe I will add more later on..), the other five will still need some journaling of course.
And this one is only the collage, waiting for the Big Paintmarker Attack...:
I'm not used to folding my collaged pages. I have to be very careful not to tear the picture or create a big lump. As you can see I didn't always succeed in that...but it is something I have to live with since the original size of the book is too small for me. Let's hope the overall look of the pages and the journal will make up for the lumps and tears!
By the way, the backgrounds of all the pages are painted with my new Thinkling H2O's from Luminarte. They blend so well and the glimmer in the paint is soooo gorgeous!
I only have 13 colors but I hope more will follow soon:
To be continued!
