Sketchbook Project - Post #1

I thought I would put one word Wednesday on hold for a week and share what I've been doing for the sketchbook project since I've been meaning to post about it for a little while now.

My theme is "If you lived here..." and I'm combining art with real photos that I took around my city and home. I'm also going to do some sketching here and there and whatever else I come up with! :)

What I plan to do to the above page is attach a flap made of cardstock (a door) that will go right over the picture.. it will be like the entrance to my life and the place where I live. I wanted to try to make the journal a little interactive and interesting since a lot of people (I hope!) will be looking at it. Plus I love little flaps and hidden things in journals. :)

I know we aren't really supposed to use embellishments but I couldn't help it, I love buttons and ribbon way too much! I probably won't use anymore, but had to stick them in there somewhere..

These pages aren't finished - there will be lots of writing on them. I'm going to be telling stories about some of the pictures and things that I'm familiar with. I think I'm going to save the writing for a little later on, but it will be a main part of the book.

In other news... I am planning on opening an etsy shop soon! I have been working on a painting for awhile now that is almost finished and have been working on a few other things for my shop as well.. I'll be sharing these with you soon! xo
