Hack Your Kindle Cover and Make a Custom Watercolor Sketchbook

I had so much fun sharing this recycling art tip on Periscope today! Thanks to those who watched live and asked questions and sent hearts. I hope this gives you some good ideas on making your own custom sketchbook.
If I missed your question, please post on the comments below or on my IG account.
For a tutorial on how to sew the watercolor paper into the Sketchbook Project cover, see my YouTube Channel here and here.

Every week I broadcast art tips and tutorials live on Thursdays at 4:30 pm!  If you missed it live, you have 24 hours to watch the replay.

Oh, yeah, and also......When I get all excited about sketchbooks, I get mixed up about the name of the sketchbook in the YouTube Title (it's not a Moleskine) and the initials for Do It Yourself (DIY) heheh. So my new acronym is DYI which stands for Do You Innovate? or Do You Inspire?


  1. For the viewer who asked where to buy the Pentallic Aqua watercolor sketchbook(not on Amazon).... Pentallic does sell it on their own website: I comes in two sizes, similar to Moleskine regular and pocket sizes. But, as Michelle, says, the paper is SO much better. It's 140 pound, 100% cotton

    1. Thanks so much, Kate. I hope she sees this. Good to know!
