|first page - in progress - in my new sketchbook|
Yesterday, on a shopping trip into town, a made a self-indulgent purchase - a treat to myself after a hard week editing other people's magazine copy. It wasn't expensive, but felt good in my hand; an 8"x6" (A5) sea-blue sketchbook with pages of 110gsm paper. A new travel journal in which it would be easier to draw and paint. And I've already titled it 'Another Day, Another Journey'. The book itself has such a lovely feel to it, encased in its own soft plastic folder, with pockets front and back to hold word-whispers or other scrappy notes.

can spark ideas for new
projects - this one did for me

P.S. I think the cover of these layout pads has changed recently, but the paper is still the same.
