Sketchbook Project 2012

Having read last year about the Sketchbook Project I thought that this time round I would give it a go for the 2012 Tour - it's described as being like a Concert Tour but with Sketchbooks!

Enjoy your weekend


  1. Ann, your sketchbook is going to be wonderful. I love how you have personalized it. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.

  2. Cool!
    What a fab thing to do - and a great thing to look back on at the end of the book! xx

  3. Great! Love to see your next sketching adventures!

  4. What a great idea. Your sketchbook looks interesting. I'm curious about your developement of your sketchbook.

  5. Thank you ALL - I'm doing this Sketchbook using acrylics, the paper can just about crinkles slightly, but when dry I flatten it under a chair leg and it straightens them out. I've gone for initial impact on the first two pages to grab the attention of whoever decides to open the book....

  6. Ann ~ love this ~ think I may gesso my cover I put on PPF ~ and start over ~ I love your style ~ thanks for posting on my blog ~ Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

  7. Great beginning! Can’t wait to see the whole thing! I love that you put the map in it. (I always wonder where people are in the world!)

  8. Ann, your sketchbook looks wonderful. I'm loving the tour of your world and am inspired by your approach. Can't wait to see more. xx
