Re: Art Journaling
Lynn, what I love about these sketchbooks is that they seem less intimidating for Beginners, but also comfortably easy for more experienced Artists. It's a good fit. And the 140# paper does work well. We've incorporated other papers in the folded signatures, as well. Simple printer paper for making notes, coloured paper for other mediums, and some hot press paper for fine work. I should buy up some 90# paper to include in the books as well!!!
Cyntada, no, not erasers. I'm not sure of the materials, but I'll be finding out next week. Stay tuned because I'll share my results.
Dawn (I didn't know your name was Dawn... it's so pretty), I love your book. The signatures placed backward add to its charm. The fact that your book has a few mistakes, the paper isn't cooperating, and your decorative covers are vibrant, makes this book even more special. It's yours. And you'll use it. There's no fear of spoiling a pristine and perfect book!
Your kit sketch is terrific. I have a sketch that's nearly finished and I'll post it when I get it done. It's a challenge to roam the room while I'm teaching and then keep up with the exercises for each class.
Did you decide upon a Title Page for your book? Do you have an intent for it?
I hope that others following our adventure will post their stuff as well!
