So many Sketchbook Club members tell me this is their absolute favourite so I am VERY excited about sharing this beautiful Sardine Tin module with you.

It is VERY easy to create, lots of cheats and tricks and a very useful collage tip (it will change the way you collage forever!).

Lots of sparkly options too, in order to make this a really stunning and very frame-able masterpiece!

Please don’t forget to share your work using the hashtag #SketchbookClubSardines.

Have fun!

It's not been the easiest day here with homeschooling but onwards and upwards, tomorrow is a new day etc. My own homeschooling, however, at jenniemaizels online #sketchbookclub , is going very well indeed, in fact I'm having a lovely time! I had a go at the "Sardines" module and created my own collage drawing with watercolours, pencils and paper scraps. (John's thrilled that I cut up the road map of France just to get the word "ocean" but I would argue that we don't need that bit 😉) But so much fun! I absolutely recommend this. And I cannot draw, I mean I got a D for A level art. 😂 All Jennie's modules are free during lockdown. She's a good egg. #sketchbookclubsardines

Late afternoon, after I'd done housework, packed away homeschooling stuff, dragged everyone out for a walk, fed the dog, and when both children were occupied on Xbox or phone, I thought right, it's now or never. I sat down for a quiet hour with one of the jenniemaizels online sketchbook club modules and got out the watercolours, made a start on this sardine collage. It was the best thing I did all day. #sketchbookclubsardines



YOU CHOOSE!! Which one should be the next #sketchbookclub module? Matches, Fashion, BeerMatts or British Food?? They all use a NEW SECRET METHOD which I can’t WAIT to show you! Leave your choice in comments and I’ll count them all up… Thank you! 🥰🥰🥰

Lovey @seasaltcornwall are running my #Sketchbookclub Sardine module this week! Hooray!! It’s free & over on their blog if you’d like a go xxx



I'm not a huge fan of sardines – I was often presented with them on toast for tea as a child, which I always thought was a bit weird! But – painting them is much more fun. Really enjoyed combining collage, painting and drawing in this Sketchbook Club Sardines module.

Spent an enjoyable afternoon snipping and sticking a collaged version of jenniemaizels sketchbook club sardines. #sketchbookclub #collageart #woolrichcrafts #sketchbookclubsardines



jenniemaizels sketchbookclub Sardines drawn today. Have more but I like this one best. Black ink from meticulousink – THE nicest ink. Bit splodgy and splattery. But I like the splatter. Tempted to add some white with gouche. Next time! We have been having fun drawing sardines!

Another #sketchbookclub module completed – livening up these grey days with jenniemaizels ‘s bright colours and fabulous way with making art accessible.
This one is a tin of brightly coloured sardines, picked out in watercolours with pencil, paper collage and sequin details.
Can’t wait until we are able to meet in person again and I can restart the #forestgate sketchbook club.



My first piece of work from jenniemaizels online #sketchbookclub 😊 Such a lot of fun to do & I’m hooked! Got 2 more lined up & they won’t be the last, I’m sure! #sketchbookclubsardines #mixedmediaart #watercolourpencils #watercolour #gouache #sardines #sardinetin #glittergelpens #gelpens
