Strathmore Sketchbook Flip

I’ve filled my mixed media Strathmore sketchbook and thought I’d share a flip of its insides with you.

  • Media used includes a whole bunch of stuff including
  • Indian ink
  • Faber-Castell Gelatos
  • watercolors of different brands
  • Prismacolor colored pencils, markers and water-soluble pencils
  • Sharpies
  • Sakura Gelly Roll pens
  • cheap acrylics
  • charcoal in black and white
  • and some other stuff I’m probably forgetting 8D

Moleskine Flip

I actually filmed this a few days ago and forgot to post it! This sketchbook was completed over the course of November and December 2014. ❤ Of course, the feeling of finishing an old notebook and starting a new one is unspeakable, and I’m so excited that this is right in time for the New Year! I’m making a fucktonne of personal changes in 2015, and you’ll be seeing me way more on YouTube. I plan on chronicling my obsessions with notebooks and stationery as well as embracing online communities and vlogging as a self-help tool. I ordered a Kikki K personal planner in gold (been eyeing these since early 2014), and I plan on using it as an art journal, database, therapist, time management tool, wallet, personal assistant, travel journal and commonplace book/brain dump all in one lovely gold package.

I think that wood is going to quickly become my favorite surface to create art upon. I haven’t ever actually used it before, but a recent trip to the art store lead me to buying these mini wood disks. Practicing the application of different mediums on them is rewarding, and I enjoy working with the wood for its lovely smell. A penpal of mine really loved the “Head in the Clouds” piece I did, so I decided to recreate it on a wee disk.

Here’s how she stacks up in size to the original sketch, which was done in a large size Moleskine sketchbook. It’s tough to beat the texture of the edges too: that dark ring that sinks into delightful white bark.
