Handmade Sketch Book



Hi all, just wanted to share with you a quick project I made tonight. I have many many sketch books but I wanted to make a pretty one for my bedside as I often draw last thing at night or first thing in the morning.

I used the new Anna Griffin Cecille Collection in 12x12, some handmade papers, the Bind It All and some canvas paper inside.

Have you ever thought about making your own sketch pad? Give it a go and I would love to see what you have created!

Also if you are stuck about what to put inside your sketch pad why not take part in our weekly drawing challenges!

I was actually thinking about doing this as all my sketchbooks must be in England and I don't like drawing on scrappy bits of paper!!
It's so pretty, I love it... I also want one for beside my bed because I get all my ideas in the middle of the night... I wake up and there they are!! xxxx

Hi Cathy!

Lovely sketchbook! I made one of these in the same way about a year ago, but have yet to sketch anything into it, lol! But now that I've seen yours I want to get going on it. I'm really looking forward to seeing all your lovley sketches inside :)

Suzie xxxx :)
