Sketchbook collages

Over the last year I've been unpacking all that I learned from my June 2011 Tactile Notebooks and the Written Word workshop with Sandra Brownlee. One of the things that stuck with me was to prepare my sketchbook pages with washes of colour. This year I've gone all out with preparing pages with watercolour and ink washes, plus I dug out my watercolour wax crayons (that I first used during a Fran Skiles workshop) to gussy up a few pages. A bonus is that in the process I'm using up old art supplies.
