The acronym above stands for the North Shore Needle Arts Guild and today we started on our version of a sketchbook project.
Some of the members of the guild participated in the art house co-op Sketchbook Project http://www.arthousecoop.com/sketchbookproject2011 (me included) and enjoyed it so much we thought the members of the needlework guild might enjoy the challenge. Bonnie arranged the purchase of some wonderful sketchbooks and we created a list of possible themes to get everyone started.
Today we had a “wet workshop” after our regular meeting and shared some of our favorite techniques with our fellow guild members.
Everybody shared their ideas about what might make an interesting page…
and what would be the best way to get rid of those brand new sketchbook white page blues! My theme is “In Stitches” and I will show you my progress from time to time over the next few months. I’ll be in my new studio next week ( yahoo!) and this sketchbook will be near the top of my “to-do” list.
Lovely pages developed so far. I like the personal, small group aspect of this sketchbook project – and the sketchbooks look so much nicer than those sent out by Arthouse last year. Look forward to seeing yours develop.
