New Sketchbooks

New Sketchbook
I found these beautiful hardcover recycled paper sketchbooks yesterday
at a big art supply shop the city. They're called Cachet Earthbound by Daler◆Rawney
Sea Shell Postcard
This old postcard I painted a few months ago served as inspiration
for the coral reef drawing I made on the cover.
Reef drawing cover
I plan to color it with watercolors this afternoon.

So so beautiful!

Can I ask you something? I noticed that your blog has a new template - it's really gorgeous with those beautiful photos. Can I ask you how have you changed it?

I love this brown speckled paper. I found a link to buy this sketchbook here:

Do you have a source for loose paper that has that earthy look?
Thanks,
Cindy

What a great idea to decorate the cover! Love it... and I love the painted postcards. Do you paint directly on them, or Photoshop the images onto them? Thanks!

I love these sketch books, they are exactly what I have been searching for and we get Daler Rowney in Australia, so I can get my art supply shop to order them in for me, hooray. The drawing you have done is just beautiful, I can’t wait to see it coloured. I have been brewing plans for painting on sketch book covers for a while now, but hadn’t been able to find the right books. I found some recently at a thrift shop, but the cover is corrugated so I couldn’t use them the way I wanted, so I embellished them with vintage buttons. I blogged about it here http://createdbykylie.blogspot.com/2009/09/buttons-buttons-buttons.html on my very new blog.
Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the sketch books I have been wanting and for your blog which is one of the lovely arty blogs that has inspired me to get started on a blogging adventure of my own.

¡Hola, Geninne!:

El cuaderno es precioso, sobre todo con el dibujo en la portada que le estás haciendo. Seguro que cuando lo colorees con las acuarelas quedarán todavía más bonito. Verdaderamente, tienes un don maravilloso para la pintura y te agradezco muchísimo que lo compartas con todo el mundo a través de tu blog.

He visto los post anteriores y tu casa parece sacada directamente de una revista de decoración; es absolutamente armoniosa, bella y alegre. Y me encanta el calendario, aunque sería genial que, en cada mes, hubiese algún dibujo pequeñito. Aún así, es precioso.

Que pases una gran semana con los tuyos y que todo te vaya muy bien.

Helena,
en Santander, España.

I posted a bunch of free vintage postcards I've scanned in full-res so you can use them for whatever, if you'd like. :)
