Sketchbook Sunday

Blowing off some dust here for the first post in a looong time. Planning on this becoming more of a regular thing. So...every Sunday I will post some pics of some recent sketchbook pages. Some are 'finished' some still in progress. 

(A note on the sketchbook that I'm using - I made it myself. It is 4.5" x 6.25".  The covers are a lightweight cardboard that I painted after taking Roxanne Coble's 21 Secrets class - Fragments and Mysteries - excellent class. The pages are a mix of papers and it was all bound together using a Bind-it-all machine. And, shameless plug, there are several of these for sale in my Etsy shop.)

Inspired by...

Century Girl by Lauren Redniss. The illustrated biography of Doris Eaton Travis. I haven't had a chance to read the book yet, but found the illustrations to be very inspiring. The pages are done art journal style with collages and handwritten text.

Below are a few of my favorite spreads, along with a couple of my sketchbook pages that were loosely inspired by pictures in the book.
