Sketching the night away…

The last couple of days have been spent sketching away some motifs for my newest collection to be.

Choosing a sketchbook is one of THE hardest things for a designer to do! Personally I love large chunky square sketchbooks and am always on the lookout for one which inspires me and makes me want to draw and design inside it! When we were in London, I fell in love with the one below …so luxurious but at @ £12.50 for a sketchbook, (when I go through them so quickly) really isn’t economical. The sketchbook played on my mind and we ended up going in Paperchase (different ones I may add!) three times before Leon decided enough was enough and marched over to the till with it!
