The theme I chose for my sketchbook is "Storybook". I've only got starts of pages drawn up so far but I've been getting some good things done lately. I have some great plans for this sketchbook. I hope I can finish in time!!
Anyways, usually when I have a sketchbook I cover the back of the covers in a pretty paper, makes the sketchbook feel a lot nicer to me so I did it with this one as well. I went on a hunt for different papers and ended up finding a scripty writing one (perfect for a storybook) as well as a paper with a toile print.
The papers were a bit too white for how creamy colour the sketchbook paper is so I decided to dye the paper with tea. ( Cinnamon tea :) It smelled so good! )
After the paper had dried and everything I went over some things with a thin tip gold paint pen, as I'm going to have a lot of gold going through my sketchbook to make it sort of like the letters you would find in really old storybooks! Here's the first pictures of what I've done

That's all I got so far! So much more Sketchbook Project pages to come in the future!! Keep lookin
