Sketchbook As Sketchbook Practice

For today’s sketchbook practice, I made a sketchbook for my boyfriend’s mother that he is giving to her as a gift. For the front and back covers, I used a piece of art he created with pastels. For the month of July, we have challenged each other to create some kind of art every day, and so far we have both met the challenge.

My favorite recent find is a deckle blade for my paper cutter. I was so excited when, while looking for a replacement blade for a paper cutter a friend gave me several years ago, I found the cutter has many different blade options including the deckle blade. Now all my handmade sketchbooks can have deckle-edge paper. Love, love, love 🙂
