My Creative Space

My Creative Space is back up & running! Head on over to kootoyoo's blog to see all the participants.

As for me, I haven't had much time at my craft desk. Indeed, my desk is piled high with a mess that's been there since December... I've been extra busy at work, finishing my Master's, so I just haven't had time.

I did spend some time with my sketchbook (for the Sketchbook Project) though ... want to see the last few pages I finished up before sending it out? Here they are:

pages 72-73


pages 74-75


pages 78-79

These 3 spreads are probably my favourite of the whole notebook. I love the intense colour of the oil pastel & the black outlining (inspired by Alisa Burke's amazing work).

I decided to leave the other "unfinished" pages pretty much as is. The only changes I made were as follows:
I wrote "I ink therefore I am" on the black page next to the octopus. I think they go together nicely.
And I just added some colour to this page. I wanted to do more with this spread, but I wasn't inspired & had no time.

So that's it for my sketchbook. It's currently in the mail, on its way to Brooklyn. If anyone gets a chance to check out the Sketchbook Project as it makes its way across the US, let me know!

OoOo! The lemon and limes pages are awesome! I think they'd look neat framed in a kitchen.
