The artists or writers sketchbook or notebook has always been fascinating to me. Recently Leslie Avon Miller and Robyn Gordon both posted about their and others sketchbooks and notebooks. Some of the notebooks shown are downright works of art!
I havent been keeping a sketchbook, and reading the above posts gave me a thirst to do so. I tore a 22" by 30" sheet of Stonehenge paper into equal parts giving me four sheets of paper or twelve pages to equal one signature. I will make more signatures as needed and bind them together later.
My pages are quick and messy. I want to make self-portraits in this signature. Here I took an old journal page, glued it down with matte medium, then before it dried lifted the page off. The writing, backwards, was left behind. I used an old collograph plate to stamp an image. Acrylic paint. I am not done with this page.
Antique bronze paint. Charcoal.
Journal pages glued on and charcoal markings. Stenciled shapes.
Do you keep a journal, whether of words or sketches?? If you post about your journal I will link to your post. Hmm, maybe I should investigate Mr Linky?
