New sketchbook/journal

A new sketchbook/journal project I'm starting
where I'll be drawing my pressed plant specimens.
I bought the handmade recycled paper journal at the grocery store where I buy organic produce & goodies here in Queretaro. It's made in Mexico.

Happy Canada Day to all my lovely Canadian friends!!! :)

very organic and earthy, those pages will surely fill up with beautiful illustrations, looking forward to get sneak peaks. When I go out on walks now, Geninne, I am reminded of how you collect botanical specimens and am inspired to do the same. The journal looks pretty and indeed a great choice for your project.

Love the idea, you're so creative! I have a similar book but it's so small that I cannot write in it, but I bought it because I love the feel of it - the cover is wrapped in dried leaves, actual tree leaves!! Thanks for sharing your projects1

What a fun idea! I've always loved drawings of plant specimens as you call them. Your paintings are beautiful. Will we get to see more of these?

Hey, that's nice! My illustration teacher is currently working for a scientific botanical garden. She's doing studies like you have done, only much more detailed and with a literally microscopic precision. It's nice how you did the color samples on the page as well...I love it. Happy botanical drawing!

What a terrific project! Do you have any special way of pressing your plants, and preserving them? I find the color fades so quickly...

WOW, what a great project...... love the idea of the real specimen next to the ink drawing.

Oh my! Very lovely. I really like this idea. I go for walks every day in our wild park and find all sorts of beautiful things, this would be a great way to collect them.

Thanks for the idea!

¡Gracias por ser una inspiración!

Esta es una súper buena idea para que este verano haga con mi hija de seis años.

Blessings!

Geninne, me hiciste pensar en Henri Rousseau. Cuentan que todas las tardes daba caminatas y recogía plantas, hojas y semillas con las que creaba las composiciones que nosotros conocemos como las grandes selvas que son el sello de sus obras.

Beautiful as always! There is a restaurant in New Braunfels, Texas called Huisache. I was wondering where the name came from.

What an interesting coincidence! I just did a couple of botanical observations myself (although not nearly as beautiful as yours, of course). I like your nature journal, I think I will steal your idea.... ;)

Very interesting project. I *was* a botany student and currently my interest in plant life is dead - I deeply appreciate your interest in collection, preserving and sketching them. Thanks for inspiring me to take up something like this...thanks for sharing your interests and works!!

The subject and color make me think of 17th century botanical drawings.

Hi Geninne,
Cute idea! You execute it so well, each page looks like an framable, original piece of art. Where did you buy that thin white tape you use to hold down your leaves and flowers?

Your artwork is beautiful. I live in Queretaro too. Where do you buy your organic produce and foods? I would love more options.
Thank you.
