Each chapter gives you a jumping-off theme to get you going: elements, lines and grids, everyday objects, and simple pleasures are just a few to inspire you. Of course, you can ignore all of them and choose your own - and you probably will after you try a few of these. Each chapter has examples,and techniques for working in a variety of mixed media. Drawing, painting, collage, image transfer, stamping. Wax, watercolor, pencil, charcoal, fabric: anything goes! This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Since I don't consider myself a sketchbook or journal person, I did not expect to get as excited as I did about going back to my sketchbook. But honestly, this book has inspired me and I am ready to pick up where I left off at the end of 2000 and play around. My colored pencils are languishing in the bottom drawer and I'm ready to get them out and start playing in my spiral-bound book.
Thanks, Sue, for getting me started again!
