Boho Elephant Sketchbook Cover

Yesterday I shared with you my cover art for the current issue of The Coloring Studio made from my “Boho Elephant” coloring page.  Today I have another example of how I turned my coloring page into a piece of art… this time functional art as a sketchbook cover.

After transferring the pattern onto unstretched canvas, I first painted with acrylic paint, and then embroidered selected portions of the design.  I sewed this panel into a book cover using batik fabric, fitting it to a standard sketchbook that I had on hand.  I added a hand stamped ‘victory road’ label and a small tassel to the spine.

When I use up the current sketchbook, I can just slip a new one into the cover!
