When I rebound my book for The Sketchbook Project 2012, I made it with 4 signatures of 4 pages each, giving me 16 single sheets of paper for each section. I want this sketchbook to have a more cohesive feel than my last one, so each of the 4 sections will adhere loosely to a theme. I haven't quite decided on all the themes yet & there's still quite a bit of work yet, but I'm pretty happy with how it's shaping up.
The first signature is almost complete - only the center spread on green cardstock left. The theme is an introduction to the topic, forks & spoons. I know I've already shown you some of these pages, but there aren't that many, so I'll show you again from the first page:
page 1: cover page
pages 2-3: definitions
pages 4-5: pattern & collage
pages 6-7: to be filled in
pages 8-9: collage & portrait of a spoon
pages 10-11: in many languages
I really like how these 2 pages turned out - just don't edit my Chinese, Japanese, Hindi & Russian characters, I doubt they're correct! And I really only know that the English, French & Latin versions are correct - the others come from an online translating site. If you recognize a language, let me know!
pages 12-13: portrait of a fork & "take a bite"
For the second section, I only have one page spread filled in, the middle one I've already shown:
So I'm not too sure where I want to go with this signature in terms of theme. We'll see.
There's only one other spread to show you, this one the middle of section 3:
I'm pretty sure the theme of this section will be "quotes & sayings" - I already have an idea for "fork in the road" and spooning. Should be fun! If you have any fork or spoon quotes, please leave them in the comments!
I have yet to decide on the final section as well. Maybe forks & spoons in unusual places? Utensils with food on them? Or maybe a combination of both: forks & spoons in use. Hmmmm...
Any suggestions, especially for the 2nd theme?
