Sketchbook "JOY" is here.

Please visit Janice's blog:   www.fripperee.wordpress.com
Her handmade journals are wonderful.   I hope everyone will be able to have one in this New Year 2009.


It is here!   All the way from Australia.  Sketchbook "JOY".    This is so much more than I expected.  It is just a beautiful book.   
I am doing sketches in my big Sketchbook and writing ideas on how to begin the Illumination of the wonderful gift.    There are many pages.  Very nice cover.  The leaves are well sewn.  
"JOY" is a joy!

Thanks for leaving a comment. I really enjoy them! I am in a dilemma. I think I need to use straight Acrylics or Guache. What do you think for Illuminated pages that will have an illuminated Letter?

I'm not really sure about which medium to use but you might find some good tips on this blog.

I would love to see your Illuminated pages. I would love to be able to do that kind of work. Please tell us more about what you plan to do.

The sketch book is gorgeous, something special when things are handmade. It makes you want to fill with with beautiful things.
Have you used inktense pencils, they give you bright ink colours when wet, might be nice for illuminated letters.
