Writers & Illustrators Contest - Make-A-Book
Hi! It’s guest blogger, Missy! Being an artist, I have a need for sketchbooks. I’m pretty much obsessed with them. I have sketchbooks with thin paper. I have sketchbooks with thick paper. I have sketchbooks with black paper. I have tiny sketchbooks. I have giant sketchbooks. I even have many sketchbooks I’ve made myself.
Making your very own sketchbook is a fun and inexpensive way to keep all your drawings together, practice new art techniques, and test new art supplies. You can also use a homemade book to write a story, keep a diary, make plans for a project, write check lists, create secret codes, etc. You can also use this book to write and illustrate your outdoor adventure story for the Writers & Illustrators Contest!
