Sketchbook project

Sketchbook project
I finished the project, yea! I always do the inside first covers last because I am never happy with them if I do them first by the time I finish the end. So, my technique is to do the first couple of pages last, then they seem to flow with the rest of the project. The next photo is the back cover. I used oil pastels and gave the background texture by adding squares of muslin while painting over it.
