Made my own sketchbook again! This time a pizza box formed the Cover. I haven't shown the painting of that, but I just flattened it out and poured the blue acrylic paint directly on to it and then scrapped it over with an old store card (they make great scrapers by the way, but need to be slightly flexible, the not too floppy sort).
having painted both sides, once dry I then made some inner pages to fit. Bear in mind the overall size of this is only about 5" x 5" .
I attached the pages by threading through some blue ribbon, which I left hanging on the outside with some extra ribbon and beads (the beads were actually a left over from Christmas crackers). I also covered the edges of the book with paper to give it a more Book like appearance
From my button box I used this jewel button - just put a hole in the cover of the book and then used a small piece of wire (the sort you get in packaging) to attach it on the inside
and that does it!
one sketchbook ready to pop in my bag
and take out and about
for a spot of sketching and journalling!
Hope you enjoyed.
