Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook

For the next year and a bit, I am participating in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook. It is a sketchbook round robin - our books travel monthly to the next participant and then we get our original book back at the end. Each month the "theme" is that month so it will be easy to remember! But the first spread is about one's self and a colour that has meaning at the moment. 

I thought I would show you my page spread and my sign-in page for this week's Sunday Sketches with Blue Chair Diary before it leaves for Australia to meet Nicola!

Sign in page (inspired by my favourite book!)

My colour page spread - purple inspired

Close-up views:

Page 2 (hat related to Word of the Year)

 Page 3 - A quote I love and favourite friend

Looking forward to seeing everyone's efforts for Sunday Sketches!

  23. That is one cool project! I think your sign in page is fantastic - such a great idea :)

    I adore your propeller hat (Would you believe I actually have one?!?) And, of course it would only be appropriate for the moon to make an appearance!

    Can't wait to see more...

  24. What a fabulously cool concept. You've gotten the sketchbook off to a great start and your portrait reminded my of the soon-to-be Princess Kate. I can't wait to see what you end up with after the book has made its way around the world.

  30. I've always wanted to join in on something like this but I'd be so nervous about what to put in other's books! Purple is such a strong colour and one I love so I think you did a fabulous job on using that for your spread.
