Hi you guys! I am so happy — my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project made it safely to the Brooklyn Art Library today — yay! For a while there I didn’t know if I’d be able to get it done, but luckily we had an extension and I was able to finish it. (whew.)
My theme was “A Record Year for Rainfall” — I chose it because I have a thing for clouds. :) When I signed up I thought we really were headed for a record year for rainfall, but we ended up below average, darn. So I thought about it awhile and then decided to sketch record players and make it all about favorite rainy day songs! Here’s a little peek at some of the pages — appropriately enough, it was cloudy when I took the photos.
In addition to the sketches, I just had to include some fabric, washi tape, little pieces of this and that, and stamping — of course! I used some stamps by Hero Arts, some by Lawn Fawn and I even carved my own — the one in the lower right corner.
All of the sketchbooks will go on tour starting in February — check out the tour dates to see if there’s a stop near you. I plan to go when the tour comes to Austin on March 12th — can’t wait to see what everyone came up with!
And! I made these little tear out calling cards, hope people take them and stop by to say “hi!”
Let me know if you plan to go!
Singin’ in the rain, just singin’ in the rain…what a glorious feelin’, I’m happy again! I’m laughing at clouds, so dark up above, the sun’s in my heart, and I’m ready for love…gosh I love that song.
Doo da doo doo,
