Difference between a scrapbook and a sketchbook?


sketsa :
How I did it: "I just sat down, got out all my art materials, and started drawing/painting. I had about 7 sketchbooks so i just did whatever came into mind. I doodled an idea on A4 paper before putting it in the sketchbook, so i wouldn't end up with 7 sketchbooks full of useless rubbish. Now i have many drawings and they all (or at least most) show something that i was thinking about at the time"

Overall, fun!

Lessons & tips: - Don't stop. Getting up for a drink or snack or whatever is fine, but don't stop and go out for a couple of hours, or watch tv. When you come back, you won't be able to get back into it. Just let your creativity flow.

- Same as above, just let your creativity flow. If you can't think of anything, look around for something inspiring. It could be a pet, a plant, the view through the window or even something like the Tv remote. Just draw it, add some colour, maybe even put in a great big purple elephant if you feel like it.

- You will probably need some art supplies, even just at first whilst you get your creativity train moving XD, but of course you can use any media that you feel like. Try Ketchup, and any object you can use to spread it about. Maybe use mustard too, for a contrasting colour.
