Alphabet Pages

In one of the Yahoo Groups - Alphabet Discovery Workshop - we are working our way through the alphabet. We were to get a journal and use it exclusively for these alphabets. Several years ago my boys had bought me a sketchbook from one of the large bookstores. It is a 9 inch by 12 inch sketchbook. I rarely do studies that big, usually a small sketch in a moleskin or a photograph to refresh my memory is all I need. So when this opportunity presented itself I decided to use their gift.

We are randomly going through the alphabet. I think it is easier on the spine of the book to sort of jump around. I have used the letter dictionary pages down the middle on some pages to give the book more support. So far so good. I am still trying to catch up with the group. Some of these girls are really fast.

Some of these Frida images are from Gaby Braun. Thank you Gaby!

These pages are absolutely wonderful! I love the bright colours and interesting images that you have used! - And thanks for the tip of filling a book "jumping around", I'm sure it's better for the spine to do so.

These are beautiful - and so varied. I dont know if I could tackle creating them in a book that size though! Well done!

No Kidding Elizabeth - I agree with Hermine - among the best Alpha collages I've seen!
