A small group of friends decided we would set ourselves a sketchbook challenge. That challenge was to fill a small (A6) sketchbook in seven days. We could choose our own theme and work in any medium – the only proviso being that if anyone used photos in their book, you would have to do three sketches to each photo used.
I chose to go with a theme that arose in a spread I did for the soul journal project which is “In Gaia’s Garden”. It is a theme I will continue to explore and develop, definitely using some of the ideas that were very quickly put to paper during this challenge. I haven’t included every single page of the sketchbook as there is a fair bit of repetition.
It was a great idea and a good experience – one I shall certainly do again.
seeds couched on leaf rubbed linen
ivy outline on leaf-printed paper
thoughts on healing hands
more playing with the human/plant connection.
That’s it ……….seeing these again fills me with ideas once more – ideas sketchbooks are definitely a great asset.
My contribution to a book made for a friend who was not at all well – many friends made pages and the book was an absolute beauty, the recipient was more than happy with the surprise .
The quote I used on the back is one I love and one which said what I wanted to express:
“Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting
that a new world is born”
I have been neglecting this blog for far too long, mainly because I have been concentrating on the story cloth quilt I am creating/obsessing on, apologies.
However, I didn’t realise it had been so long since I had posted here – well slap my wrists!
So, what have I been doing?
Firstly there is this:
A page for a friend’ s Travelling Colour Journal. I chose green….this was way back in February.
