Anne's sketchbook conversations, I have started my own.
My style isn't to leap in and tackle the page. No! I have to pre-sketch in another book! Once I have an idea what I want to put in the book I can then proceed. Another problem I had was not knowing what to put in the book. My focus for the first page was on 17th century needlework and lace designs. I put my own spin on them using my micron and gelly roll pens.
Now I have a focus on what I want to use the book for I am looking forward to filling the pages! Oh, I also decided that I won't be using watercolour paints in my sketchbook but will use unbound sheets instead for that and stick to micron pens, gelly roll pens and coloured pencils for my sketchbook. One page down, 49 more to go!
