As I told you a few weeks ago, I signed up for Art House “Sketchbook Project 2011” and today, look at what the postman put in my mailbox:
I love the stamp on the enveloppe 😀
YES, the paper of the sketchbook is like cigarette paper: really really thin. It’s good for pencils, but markers will bleed through and it won’t hold paint/collages.
So I will have to take the pages out (and i’ll make another sketchbook for myself with it, no waste) and put some heavier paper in there. The thing is, I am not a binder. I want to, I am learning, but it’s still unfamiliar for me. It’s a simple binding, as you can see (click to enlarge… it was hard to picture, sorry if it’s still kind of blurry).
I take any help you can give to me about the re-binding (and I know it will help a lot of others who also want to do so without knowing exactly how).
Oh, and the theme I decided to work on is “FIGURING YOU OUT“. It may lead to something intersting 😀
I want also to add: don’t be afraid to join. I was. I still am. It’s huge for me, like now I can tell my Gremlins “see, I am an artist”, people will see it, I won’t keep it all for myself. You can too, and you’ll feel great when you’ll send it back for the tour and then the permanent exhibition.
It’s one of the project I do in my “being BIG & FEARLESS path”.
EDIT: question for those who participate => do you know if it’s allowed to rebind the sketchbook differently than with stiches ? for example thanks to something like the Bind-it-all ? (thanks to Kyra for bringing this up)
