letters from london journal project...
The start of a new adventure requires a new sketch journal... always!
letters from london
The whole process is very reminiscent of my first day at school, when I would come home and cover my text books. I love the personalised look that all of my sketchbooks have, and the process is very easy, so I cover all of my sketch journals.
A sketch journal to document the journey to our Caribbean adventure.
I like to use hardback artist sketchbooks with cartridge paper pages. I collect a few choice images that inspire me. On this occasion I used some basic decor pictures I took of my window with some flowers, along with the pictures I took a few days later when the flowers had started to wilt. Once the images are chosen I go about arranging them like a mood board for the cover of the book, after everything is in place I insert the bookmark ribbons, cut the fabric to size and add the fabric layer with neatly mitered corners. I recently started adding inspirational quotes as a little reminder of daily positivity.
