Sketchbook Project Progress

This is from my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project 2011. If you are doing this project, you know how terribly flimsy the paper is. Some people actually rebound their books! I really didn't want to do that, but I found a great idea on how not to have to do that here. I used pages from an old book I was going to get rid of and gave them a light coat of white acrylic paint. I used a glue stick and viola! I had pages with more body.

Here are the two prior spreads:


  1. Ann Marie i'm loving your sketches! I can't wait to see the book in person. Your lady character is great.

  2. Thanks, Vita. :) Looking forward to holiday busy-ness winding down so I can work on it again.

  3. Great idea Ann Marie! I just finished mine today. Mine started with pizazz and has ended with a bit of a fizzle, but it's done. I mail it tomorrow! Whew!

    I'm loving your sketches! Can't wait to see more!!

  4. Can't wait to see your book, Michelle! It would be cool if we could all meet on the tour at one of the locations. It will be in Austin, TX and also Portland, ME in March.
    Here's the tour link:
