ANNIE SLOAN WORK BOOK
My Work Book is a sketch book with 3 pockets for your scraps and cuttings, with notes about colour and style and about my paint. It's a sort of scrapbook/ sketchbook. It was inspired by Tawnya Norton who has a store called C'est Moi' in Tennessee and she sells my paint. She wrote to me one day;
Good Morning Annie, I was wondering if you ever thought of offering a journal. Something people could take notes in at the workshop and jot down ideas and maybe keep color recipes in that they have created even maybe add a place for photo's. I guess I see it has journal and portfolio combined.
I thought this was a great idea
So that's what I did and this is the result.
|Using drawings of a chair leg, I describe different styles of furniture - this one's Rococo. There's also Modern, Classical, Asian and Rustic. I have suggested which colours could be used historically.|
|There are three pockets for keeping your fabric swatches, cuttings and samples.|
|There is stuff about colour theory.|
Lots of my stockists will be running workshops on colour too.
There's really nice paper that can take paint.
|This is what Amy Chalmers, another of my stockists, of Maison Decor in Boston did in some of her pages! |
The Annie Sloan Work Book is only available from my stockists.
PPS. Thank you very much Tawnya for a terrific idea!
