I made a little book from tri-fold paint sample pamphlets. I like the rounded corner detail. First I gessoed both sides of the pamphlets. Then I put the pages together using Kelly Kilmer's directions on her online workshop, Journal of You.
The gesso beaded because of the slick surface but I thought I'd go with it and not gesso a second coat.
When the third side folds, there is are two hidden pages underneath.
It looks like this when it's closed.
I have wanted to practice drawing regularly, especially faces but have procrastinated. This little book will make an honest woman out of me. Here is the start.
Then I decided to add a little color. I sprayed her with gold Perfect Pearls mist (you can barely see it), painted turquoise into the background and dark brown for highlights and shadow.
I drew the same face on fold out.
Added a light wash.
Here they are side by side.
