The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project is run by the Brooklyn Art Library in New York. The deal is you sign up, they send you a small sketchbook, you decorate it in almost any manner you choose (ie no porn or sharp elements) and then send it back to NY where it forms part of a permanent exhibition. You can opt to have the sketchbook digitised so  it can be viewed online and it will also go on one of the BAL's travelling exhibitions.

Mine was posted off to New York on Tuesday: ingredients included transparent gesso, indigo, paint, watercolour, pencil, black mica mortar paste, tracing paper, map and text fragments, digitised photos of the moon, silk, stitch, woad and glue. (pics by the lovely and talented Kind Dog)

Black mica mortar paste, what's that?? And what did you use on the cover?
