The Sketchbook Project - Cover and first pages...- my submission to Theme Thursday - Couples

Hi Everyone....

I started my working on my moleskin for "The Sketchbook Project 3"

The theme for this piece is "Everyone we know" and you know I had to add my signature sun and moon piece to it....I cut a circle out of the cover and made my sun and moon piece on the first page so you can see it from the front......

They represent the special love between two people that are opposites....and everyone knows a couple like that....

they are a wonderful couple and I also submit this piece to Theme Thursday's challenge - "Couples"

Have a wonderful day....
Hugs
Diana

What a fantastic project and to think that your artwork will be seen in all of those places must be so exciting...especially when dear blogging friends may visit. Your cover and first pages are so symbolic and beautifully designed with your signature use of colour and pizzazz.
