I've always admired and been intrigued by artist's sketchbooks but have never used this method for myself. My creative process has always been to have an idea in my head and just go to my stash, select the fabrics, and stitch.
But now that I'm working in different mediums, I find having a place to try new things is a great idea!
I've started 3 different sketchbooks and this is my latest. Playing with crayons. Yes, I'm regressing to my kindergarden days but why not! This was when I was the most creative. Here, I'm playing with water-resistant crayons covered with water color paint. I love how the crayons are picking up the texture of the cold press paper. I might try printing this on fabric and adding stitch.
Hmmmm. Maybe I'm getting my mojo back!
