collage sketchbook pages 1-4 by laura redburn

you might have seen on my instagram recently that i started a small a6 moleskine collage sketchbook.

personally, i’ve always preferred loose pages over a sketchbook, but wanted to challenge myself a bit this year with various things. i figured something small such as this, with a limited amount of pages might get me back into some sort of routine. seeing these collages all together in a easy to look through format definitely has its charm!
