New Sketch Book

So my last sketch book is almost full, time to make a new one to take with me. I like the size of this one better. It gives me more room to write the details. The last one had no room for that and the sketch area was smaller. 

So this one is measures 6” tall and 4” wide with lots of pages. I took 12x12 cut in half then cut them into third (4”). The cover paper is from Teresa Collins and I didn’t cut off the edge that connected it to the pad, punched more holes with my crop-a-dial tool. The cover paper is glued to a piece of white chipboard. the back I left plain.

The pocket is made to hold a cut card that is the size I want for my sketches. Now I will have a good strong lines that are the same.

That is the card in the pocket. I can also use it to draw straight lines for my details when I want them.

It has the little magnet snaps from Basic Grey to hold it shut. Look at all those pages. I bond it with binder clips.

Thank you for visiting me today. I hope I inspired you to make something fun. May your day be filled with tons of blessings.
