sketchbook ideas

I have just started to subscribe to ‘cloth paper scissors’; they send emails to you almost daily with great ideas for mixed media and art journaling ideal for new ideas and developing ideas in sketchbooks!

I just need to put some of it into practice, once I have finished assignment 2 I might try the techniques as soon as they arrive as I really need to get to grips with my sketchbook.

Some of the other students on the Facebook page are doing a 10 minute sketch a day challenge which would be good to try as well.

About Julie Hooker

Having recently returned to my roots in Surrey, I am currently studying a BA Hons degree with the OCA. My work is often inspired by the local countryside in the beautiful Surrey Hills area and the wild rugged nature of the North Cornish coast. Steam engines and abandoned industrial history are also recent themes. A free machine embroiderer and felt maker; I like to explore the use of natural, found materials to create my art, whether that be as raw materials to stitch or weave with or as a material with which to produce dye or print with. Previously, I completed City and Guilds parts 1 & 2 Creative Embroidery at the East Berkshire College in Windsor in 2007. I was also awarded first place in the wearable art section of the National Quilt Championships 2008 and 2009 held annually at Sandown Park.
