Sketchbook

My newest handbound sketchbook. Handpainted acrylic with white gouache Kanji script.
Black ink markings, white flower and moth stamping.

Cynnie, I've been having a lovely visit hopping around in your blog today! Your artwork is heavenly! Very drawn to your watercolors [adored the pink tulips!] and the bookbinding projects. But your guessing game earlier this month of the castle and the meadow shots...took my breath away! What peaceful, beautiful scenery. Xo, Sue

Absolutely beautiful book, I wouldn't want to use it just have it on display :)
I like the different layers you used of text and stamping, paint, inks to get that look. You are so multi talented Cynnie.
