Latest Sketchbook


Getting ready to start another sketchbook

.

Front cover


 These two are now filled up and added to my collection
of handbound sketchbooks.



I bind these books and cover them with my  handpainted paper. 

I am sharing them with Paint Party Friday.

Hello Cynthia!

I have read several posts to catch up with you. Your sketchbooks are really wonderful, as others have also said. I loved the beetle, too!
Where are you in Germany? I was thinking about you, while we were there last week. (Visiting my husband's relatives.)

These are so lovely, Cynnie! I'm especially partial to the bluish-green one because I love that color. What kind of binding do you do? I think that's bookbinding tape, but I'm curious as to how you apply it.
(BTW....I signed up for the class in July!)
