Some years ago I found some old photos in a antique shop, I didn´t know what to do with them, they didn´t cost much so what the HECK I just got the old photos anyway. I felt some excitement when I decided to get them. I know when that is happening to me it always turns in to something fun and new. Well, you know this is called being creative…. so I was at the spot of something unknown.
It lead me to a new sketch book that I started about a year ago, I have a blog post about it here . You can learn how to bind the book. Finaly today I finished it, yeeeayh!!! Feels great so a big: oooolala.
I don’t need to spend money on these DIY books, I used some leftover paper that I had lying around and you can do the same. It always gives me lots of energy because I always get a nice surprise with the outcome.
I go through the drawers and look around and find paper that will make interesting combinations of paper. It can include an old drawing or something printed that wasn’t quite right. For example, I had a flower drawing that turned out terrible (that was what I was feeling at the time). that was a perfect cover for my new sketch book And now I am so pleased with the result and I love my finished art book.
The colours in the book are from the leftover paper, which is a challenge. Below you see what I did with it, when I think of it I am sure I am going to do more drawings in the book.
