Like many of the others, after the initiative challenge was announced I went to the dictionary, thesaurus and sketchbook. It took me a few days to come up with my concept, but once I did - I knew I was going to go with it. The hard part was deciding how I would represent, in fabric, what I was thinking. I sketched out several designs, never in one sketch book. Once I came up with my final design, I thought it would have been nice if I had the sketches contained in one book where I could illustrate how and why I went from one sketch to another.
SueB recommended I make a scrap book/journal for myself. I knew what she meant by 'make'....... I didn't exactly make this journal, I took a premade mixed media journal and customized the cover. Inside I plan to keep all of my Fiberactions notes and sketches. It is big enough so I can add envelopes for fabric scraps or whatever I might have been considering for each challenge interval. At the end of the 2 years I think it will be neat to go back and look at how I approached each challenge.
