These sketchbook pages are the unequivocal result of effort, passion and enthusiasm. Although 'decoration' is usually unnecessary within a textile or fashion design sketchbook, in this case, the background patterning demonstrates a complete understanding of the aesthetic; a strong personal response to the colours, shapes, textures, lines and forms of the work studied.
I love this page and it's range of texture. I like the fact no drawing has been used. This shows that you can create a good sketchbook layout if drawing isn't one of your strong points. The overlay of the fabric gives it the finishing touch needed to make it flow as a page.
