Important information regarding printing this document for binding:This e-zine has been formatted for on screen viewing. If you want to print a copy to have bound then you must scale the document to 90% to allow for a wide enough left side margin. In the print box, select the scale option and change it to 90%. Please print a test page first (we recommend page 5) to make sure that the setting is appropriate for your printer before printing the entire document.

The Sketchbook Challenge E-zine is in pdf format and include step-by-step instructions and full-color photo illustrations. You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher to be able to open the lessons. Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free software that you can download from the Adobe Website.

  1. Oh, Holy Cow! I can't believe I missed this post. I've followed the Sketchbook Challenge rather haphazardly, and this e-zine will give me a chance to catch up and learn something in the process. Thank you, Leslie, Sue, and all the contributors!

  2. Hey Linda! We are doing a MIU Sketchbook Challenge workshop round robin in Houston on Saturday afternoon if you are going to be around.
    It'll be a blast, and there is lots of "swag" to give away to participants who get in.
    The e-zine is great as a print-out, too. I'll have a copy of mine, bound with laminated covers, at the workshop. Woo Hoo!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
