Summary More inspirational guide than step-by-step workbook, Painted Pages is about helping you to find your own unique way, in the everyday, to be creative and make art. With specific how-to techniques and creative prompts on using an artist's sketchbook in a new way, these pages provide a gentle push to help you discover and integrate your creative passions through sketchbooks, workspaces, and mixed media. Through beautiful full-color imagery, you'll learn in each chapter how your collections, scraps, ideas, and doodles can lead directly to, and fuel ideas for, creating individual works of art. Using her own materials and methods as a source of motivation, Sarah Ahearn Bellemare provides an inside look at her personal creative processes, sharing her use of her favorite resources alongside tips and tricks for making art - all the while encouraging you to explore, play, and make mistakes as part of the journey. At the end of each chapter, Sarah takes you to visit the studios and sketchbooks of some of her fellow artists - including Shanna Murray, Christine Chitnis, Stephanie Levy, and others - for behind-the-scenes glances into their creative work. Become inspired to build upon your own artistic style and discover the beauty in everyday life with Painted Pages!
