Pages 35 and 36: I decided to jump back into this project with this very loose sketch. I had to remind myself that it's a sketchbook so by definition the art does not need to be finished looking. This sketch records a color story along with a design idea. Materials used: acrylic paint, pencil, oil pastel and tissue paper.

Pages 39 and 40: I usually don't incorporate pastel colors in my art especially pastel pink. While I was leafing through a fashion magazine, I was struck by a 11 page spread featuring model Aamito Lagum wearing pink clothes against a pink background. It was stunning! Further into the magazine, I noticed mint green used in a few advertisements. To document this color story for future reference, I cut up some of the magazine pages and glued into this sketchbook. Some white sharpie pen to add some additional elements. Materials uses: magazine pages, white Sharpie and glue.

Pages 41 and 42: Looking through the same magazine as I did for pages 39 and 40, I noticed some wonderful grey and red/burgundy/maroon elements. Materials used: magazine pages, glue and white, black, red Sharpies.
Pages 43 and 44: I enjoyed using pages from a magazine to create pages 39 to 42. To push myself a bit, I decided to create a collage using this material. I'm excited and happy with the way this collage turned out. Especially since I used a stick glue instead of Yes glue. The papers didn't wrinkle as much as pages 39 to 42. Materials used: magazine pages, acrylic paint and stick glue.
