Someone asked me the other day if I keep a sketchbook or art journal? In what ways? How does your sketchbook influence your work? What techniques do you use in a sketchbook? I had to think about it for a minute and decided the answer was yes, but not in any traditional sense of the word. I do not have one book that I draw or doodle in, I do have note books full of ideas or things that interest me.
And of course I have photos, hundreds of them. I love this digital
world. All my photos are filed under things like quilt ideas or thread
easy to find with a touch of my computer. Here is a photo I took in Savannah last year, a wonderful idea for a quilting pattern, just sitting in my files waiting for just the right quilt!
