redlinedesign: sketchbooks as inspiration

by Sarah March 02, 2015


I have been keeping sketchbooks and journals for as long as long as I remember. They are a huge source of inspiration for me and are filled with postcards, notes, writing, sketches and lots and lots of color. I have shared a few images of my sketchbook pages over the years and am excited to share that I spent some time over the weekend painting in a new sketchbook.


My inspiration for these images comes from my pinterest board: Flowers. I have gathered so many images on this board that I want to grow my creative practice through painting and sketching, thus the new beginnings of my most recent sketchbook.

In addition to this pinterest board, I also follow some amazing artists that use paint in their own journals. Here are a few to check out:

I’m considering turning some of the sketches into prints. Let me know what you think…

Happy Monday everyone!
