Sketchbook Stuff ...

Thought I would share some of my recent sketchbook pages today, haven't done that in a while!
By no means perfect, but all a part of my process, alhtough many of them never make it past my private pages!

Latest Offering...complete at last :)

This is 'A Mermaid's Tale' , a mixed media/textile art Doll/Book inspired by my previous Mermaid Art Doll.( see previous posts). The book is made from painted and embellished fabrics, with the Mermaid Art Doll on the front.
Her tail is stiffened and wired,and folds up to protect all her jewels and embellishments (which include beads,fibers and a hand made silk flower in her hair),so the book can be stored in a standard bookcase.
Inside is a sprinkling of sketches and quotes/phases along with handmade tags and pages of printed designs from my own hand cut stamps all with an oceanic/shell theme.
When closed the book measures approximately 7" x 12" and it is signed on the back cover . All the inks and paints used in this piece are fixed or permanent.
Truly a very special piece of work and an absolute pleasure to create!
