When Annie Sloan first went to Art School, she was encouraged to keep a sketchbook. This was not just for sketching but also highly useful as a way of developing a visual voice and language. She used her sketchbooks to collect colors, pieces ripped from magazines and pattern making. She still does.
Use her Work Book in the same way—as an ‘aide-memoire’. Record you favorite color mixes, plan the color palettes of a room, work out a piece of furniture, and draw little sketches. You can use the pockets to collect ribbons, fabric pieces and cuttings from magazines. Experiment with color combinations making your own mixes.
The Annie Sloan Work Book is exclusively available through stockists. You won’t find it anywhere else!
