Happy Holidays to everyone regardless of what you celebrate.
I have a sketchbook that I put things in when I see a new technique. It is a place to save the idea for a time that I want to use it in something.
This shows using motifs off napkins. They really have beautiful parts even if it is sometimes a challenge to figure out how to isolate the bit you want to use.
In this one I tore through a page to show the photo on the page before it. It's the negative of the mushroom photo I took years ago and keep going back to use. The torn window seemed more in keeping with mushrooms than a nicely cut one would.
Here is an interesting edge created by using a rubber stamp along the edge and then cutting along the stamped lines. Not all stamps work.
I'm looking forward to taking part in http://sketchbookchallenge.blogspot.com/ When I work in a sketchbook, I enjoy it and like to look back at what I did, but I need the push.
