Making sketch books

Today was finally the day for the rescheduled book making workshop. Frances hosted us in her studio. I first demonstrated making the book. Then I walked the group through each step together. That barely took an hour! So there was more time for everyone to make at least one more book. There were some creative ideas for changes and additions.

One of the creative ideas:  Carolyn used some lace brought by another artist to add to the cover:

We had the obligatory group photo though this time everyone held the sketch books they’d made

After lunch, most of us sketched in Frances’ beautiful garden. Just to be silly she brought out a skull to put in the planter. With the long blossoms, it looked like a head with arms and a torso. It was, of course, the subject of choice for some of us!

Carolyn quipped something about “keeping an open mind”!
