Description


Embroiderers and textile artists can make the most of their sketchbooks with this practical and inspirational guide to mixed media.

Working with a combination of paper, fabric, found objects, pencil, ink, and paint, Shelley Rhodes demonstrates how a sketchbook can act as an illustrated diary for textile artists, and as a starting point for expanding their creative process. She explores the importance and joy of creating a sketchbook; ways to record and investigate inspirational ideas; mixed-media techniques, including layering and three-dimensional sketching; going on location; and using electronic devices to develop projects. Sketchbook Explorations is the ideal companion for both beginners and more experienced artists in search of exciting techniques.
