Limited Edition Sketchbook is done!

I finished filling up my sketchbook for the Limited Edition Sketchbook project the other day. This project, put on by the Art House Co-op was limited to 5,000 artists participating. Find out more about this project HERE. Sign-ups closed a while ago and all sketchbooks are due to be postmarked April 30th. The exhibit and tour for this Sketchbook project will begin in June, 2012. There is something different about this project: Every contributor to the Sketchbook Project Limited Edition Vol. 1 will be included in a series of art books documenting the project. Together, the series will provide insight into the imagination and process of each artist participating in the project. Bound by the Brooklyn Art Library Press and hand-finished in our Brooklyn workshop, the book series will be published in the fall of 2012. Cool! You can click on any photo to see more details, if you see a plus sign "+" you can click again.

more photos are found HERE. This post will be on top so scroll down for earlier ones!
Questions and comments are welcome. 
I will send this off to the Art House Co-op in the next day or two - EARLY!! This book will not be returning to me. It will become a part of the art house co-op's library after it's tour and I am okay with that! I like the experience of creating it more that being able to keep it. My house is very small and already overflowing with art!   : )

  1. This is awesome! Loving the texture!

  2. Yea, Lenna! The Sketchbook looks fabulous. I sent mine in at the beginning of the week. Thank you for encouraging me to participate. It was a gas. I have already signed up for the new Sketchbook and have an idea floating around in my head. Can't wait to see it posted on line.
    Hugs. Beth

  3. It's so gorgeous and so very you! I know I once again found it hard to part with mine althought it has now gone postal and I'm sure you must feel the same. Have you signed up yet for 2013?

  4. You are amazing, you so capture life in art my friend. I love coming here to view your art.
    Have a lovely weekend
    Hugs June x

  5. its gorgeous Lenna! you are such a goer, when the hell do you get it all done? the workshops/ tutorials, the pages, the books, the fam, the man.... think i need some tips for moving a little more efficiently round here... do you like Julie B, just sleep every couple of days/ weeks or so? :)

    have a beautiful weekend, yours looks great. you used the basic book, didnt rebind, i think you said, its lovely.. xxx

  6. I've been back and forwards to gaze at this wonderful sketchbook, Lenna! These pages are simply wonderful. I LOVE how you've pulled together photographs, colours, rubber stamping, quotes and textures. The little sneaky peek windows are fun :o) Well done for getting it all done quite quickly too - once you got started you just went with your creative flow and got it done. And got it done beautifully too.

    I wonder which page(s) will be chosen to go in the book?


  7. I've joined the project too but didn't take pictures of all my pages. But you can find it online at the gallery. I soo love yours! All those textures, amazing.

  8. Thank you for a glimpse into your world. I enjoyed your limited edition sketchbook very much. I participated last year - you can see mine here:
    if you are interested and I'm going to sign up this year too.
