I’ve been destroying my sketch book…

The pages were disappointingly thin. So I ripped the guts out, cut watercolour paper to size, rebound it with waxed thread and then gave it a new canvas cover. The only original element is the cardboard from the cover and you won’t even see that in the end!  Thank you Kelly for the inspiration, links and support!
I think I shall be making more little sketch books in this way, I think they would be fabulous for little travel journals etc…


  1. Yay Yay Yay! I was coming over here to stalk you about switching out that paper, and I am thrilled that you already did it! Wasn't it fun and satisfying to rip the guts out of that thing?!? I am a thousand times happier that I did it, and I know you will be too. Hope you are having fun again!

  2. Oh my - you were brave!!


Thanks for dropping by and for leaving me a comment. It brightens my day!
