Stunning! The interview was great and I checked out the other blogs to add to my Art Inspiration list.
Since it is Autumn here in Colorado I think your next sketch book cover should be leaves or pinecones...that's just my 2cents!

Now that's far more inspiring than a plain cover! It looks gorgeous Geninne. And I LOVE the look of artworks done on 'kraft' paper or card.

I've been on the hunt for one of those earthbound sketchbooks here in Australia for months, and the one place I found overseas that would ship here, wanted to charge me 4 times the value of the book just to ship it!

I'm still hunting though :)

Hi Geninne - I knew your watercoloured version would be lovely, but wow it's more than that. 'Gorgeous' was the word that came to mind as soon as I saw it - and it seems many others felt the same. Each time I see one of your creations I am inspired to reach for my watercolours, but somthing stops me - I fear I will be disappointed with the result!
Have a lovely day.

The cover looks great. What I really appreciate is your use of the white acrylic ink. It adds a nice touch to highlight certain lines/marks and brightens up the piece. Such a smart divergence from black that is commonly used in a similar way but tends to dull things in comparison. What inspired you to start using white ink?

This is great. I saw it yesterday without the color and liked it then, but now it is just lovely.

I am REALLY into seashells right now b/c we spent a week at the beach this summer in So.Cal. and collected a bunch of shells. My younger daughter is really into it. That is a beautiful journal . I have a FATTY journal, but if I fill it up (nearly so) I will have to get one of those and color pencil on it (my fave). God bless you, Page
