2011 Sketchbook Challenge

I am participating in the 2011 Sketchbook Challenge...there's the button on the right to take you to the blog. each month a theme is set by one of the artists who are coordinating the challenge and you work away at it throughout the month. this first photo is my title page in my book. I made the book from recycling an old book I found in an op shop and lots of my old screenprints, etchings, and coloured papers I made. I've also included some handmade paper I bought home with me from nepal.
this second photo shows my brainstorming with ideas for the january theme of "highly prized"...
one of my highly prized things is time....there is never enough to do all the things I like to do. it also includes a photo of myself and my sister when we were very young....all dressed up for sunday school. time seemed to go much slower then.....
head over to the sketchbook challenge blog to check out heaps of things to do with sketchbooks...and you can still join in if you'd like. there's also a flickr page where we are posting photos of our pages as we go along. lots of interesting stuff.
