Paint and sketch, stick and collect, write and reflect—Annie Sloan’s Paint Workbook is a creative journal for all of your colorful thoughts and design inspirations. Divided into six themed chapters—Bohemian and Vintage, Rustic Country, French Elegance, Traditional Swedish, Modern Retro and Warehouse, and Coastal—Annie gives you her own personal decorating hints and tips about the colors and elements that make up these key decorating styles. Whether you’re redecorating a room and can’t decide on the color scheme, covering some pillows and having problems choosing between fabrics, or simply in need of somewhere to sketch out your ideas, this workbook is a space in which you can jot down your thoughts, and play with different shades and patterns. There are pages on which you can write notes, stick in images, draw shapes, paint color samples, and experiment with your style. There are also six pocketed card dividers where you can store magazine cuttings, paint charts, and more. This beautifully designed journal will become a record of your creativity, as well as a chance to reflect upon your various projects. With handy decorating tips, drawings, and suggested activities, inspiration will come in abundance!
