Sennelier USK Books

...a tip in swap...

   I've got myself wrapped up in another art swap. This particular swap is being hosted by a good friend of mine, Ruth Morris aka Art_Junkie of ATC's For All. The appeal of this swap is to end up with a finished sketchbook. I have yet to complete my own sketchbook, so this is awesome to have! We are using the Sennelier USK Book. They look like this...

I wanted to personalize my own book, so I painted up the cover. 

I've also colored in the edges of these accordion folded pages.

The above shows some of the art that I got on one of the swaps. I'm in a second round now, that will fill the book back and front. I did leave the first couple of pages blank, for a table of contents. 

Here are some of the pages that I will be turning in for trade. We glue these tip in pages, in to the book. :) It's cheaper than sending the whole book to be art'ed in. 


  1. Wow, that looks beautiful! You created your own cover, that is so awesome! And I see some more pomegranates and birds. Pity I don't have more time on my hands...

  2. Love those cherries! They are so vibrant!

  3. These are soooo beautiful!! I would love to try that one of these days!
