Sketchbook 2012

A couple years ago I started seeing online all sorts of gorgeous pages being put together for the Sketchbook Project. I was inspired and finally decided to take the plunge and sign up for the Limited Edition 2012. Deadlines and challenges work for me, in that they push me to do something I may not get done otherwise. So this project was to push me in the mixed media area. Technically I do mixed media as I work in clay and fiber but I wanted more push so I signed up. 
I took the 'sketchbook' part seriously and didn't aim for perfection but instead for the learning experience yet at the same time I didn't want to send in a piece of junk so of course there were a couple pages that got redone. You can check out the sketchbooks in person or have a look at them online. You can find mine here. There is an unlimited number of inspiring sketchbooks to look through!
This one wasn't a stretch but is somewhat of a signature piece for me, teabags with dried petals.
 Above is my husband's favorite. It is a more personal piece. It was done at a journal workshop.
 This is watercolor paints stamped onto fabric. Done at one of our Odd Tuesday play dates. 
 Handmade paper, also made at an Odd Tuesday get together. 


  1. This looks like a lot of fun, Gina. I especially like the page on top with the purple and the buttons.

  2. I love it all. I never finished mine, but I might try again next year. Your cover is gorgeous.

  3. You come up with such wonderfully expressive pages. How do you do it?


I enjoy hearing from you! If you've made your email address available I'll send an email reply. Thanks for visiting!
