sketchbook, 5.25" Wide x 7.25" High, it's on 100% recycled paper, 70lb text stock, and is 32 pages long. The cover is a natural brown that lends itself to some very creative approaches. There are very few restrictions on what you can do in the sketchbook, many people remove the pages completely and re-bind the book into something different. The only stipulation is that the finished book must remain the same size and can not exceed an inch in depth. This is to ensure ease of packing, storing and displaying. I'm sure there are some very clever creatives out there who are going to turn this sketchbook into works of art.

I've decided to approach this project using my favorite "materials of the moment". I've painted all the pages cover-to-cover with black gesso and I've been using my treasured Twinkling H2O's with a splattering of Neocolor II's and a flourish of acrylic. So far the results are mostly shimmering, but I still have a long way to go. I'll show you more pages as time goes on.
If you feel so inclined, then I encourage you to sign up and participate. There will be some amazing sketchbooks by some very talented artists, and you'd be in good company.
Thanks for checking in. xx
