May Theme - 'Voices'
I have decided to take part in the 'Everyday In May' project, seeing as I post everyday anyway I figured this is part of what I already do. So, to make it more of a challenge I have also decided to go with the NaBloPoMo theme of 'Voices'.
I have decided to use a Khadi sketchbook I've had in the studio since March of last year. I have never used Khadi paper before, it's pretty rough in texture and has torn/deckled edges, at 210gsm it is sized for watercolour, ink and drawing.
The first page is not deckled on the edges and seemed a good place to declare my theme and date the book.
The second page doesn't lie flat as it's attached to the first, so I put a little explanation here and plan to start my entries on the following pages which lie perfectly flat.
The double spread is just a tad too long for my scanner but I'd really like to make use of the book in spreads rather than individual pages, so my scans will be a little cropped...I hope to accommodate that in my composition.
Using the pages as spreads I find I have exactly the right amount in this little book for the whole of May...Perfect!
