File containing a lot of information about your chosen theme:
e.g. You're planning to make a book about a trip to Paris: then you could look up a lot of information about this city, use parts of a diary you wrote when you were there, poems or songs about Paris, recipes, a map, short quotes .... You can also cut out or print pictures or drawings of the Eiffel tower, Parisian houses, statues you saw, museums you visited ... to use in your book as a collage going with the text. Or you can draw or paint some illustrations yourself if you're good at it. If you want to make your own illustrations, then bring the materials you need for that: color pencils, Watercolor, more gouache.
