1191  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Paper and Ephemera Swap Round 10 Gallery - Send-out Nov. 18 on: November 12, 2013 08:23:35 AM
 I got this package last week but ended up have a crazy migraine that night. Sorry for not posting until today. My weekends are always crazy! Tongue
 I received a wonderful package from jkaywiz.
 Inside where vintage newspapers, cork, neat papers (the gray & black paper has a really neat texture too it!), old cards, and a really neat photobook.

 Along with stamps, vintage stickers, ribbons, tags, cut outs, ticket stub, and a pamplet. There are a bunch of random little bits too!
 
 Thanks so much! I am going to have fun coming up with something for this!

 I was going to send out last week but I had a crazy migraine that just derailed all my plans. I have a package I have to sign for at the post office this Saturday so I plan to send it then.  Tongue

I have to go by the post office to pick up a package tomorrow so I am going to ask there what the best way to ship will be. If not I may redo it a tad smaller.  Tongue

 I am pretty much done. Kwality570 and I decided on wall art. Now I just have to figure out how to package and ship it. Yep, things I should have been thinking about to begin with.  Tongue

 Oh, Kosmicgirl, Copic does make a set of disposable liners too that are cheaper. They are just like normal pens where once they are used up you throw them away, no switching tips kind of thing. They are a lot cheaper than the other kind and I actually prefer the feel of them to the more expensive ones. The changable ones feel heavy in my hand. I may just be extra wimpy though.
 I got a set of the Micron Sakura liners (clam ink  Huh )for a friend for Christmas. She is just getting into water color and I was hoping those would work for her. They were only $9.43 on Amazon for a set of 6. Have my fingers crossed that they don't smear but if it's the same brand blupaisan uses it should work great.
 Does anyone know what the clam ink means?

 I have the Copic liners and my only complaint with them is if you do a pencil sketch underneath be careful, they will smear. Let then completely dry before you erase any stray lines.

 I have to say I am a Copic whore, so remember that when you read this post.  Wink I prefer those to any other marker just for their amazing quality and variety of colors. They do cost a lot, but SO worth it if drawing and rendering is what you really enjoy doing.
 That being said, have you looked into PrismaColor markers? They now have the brush tips that I find a complete must have. And you can get those at Michaels and use the coupon or find them on sale periodically. They would be my runner up for markers. I have never used the Delta's so I can't comment on those. Are they alcohol based?
 As for paper, I have used the markers paper but find I prefer the "manga" paper or Comic paper. It will let you blend, no bleading, no peeling. Love that stuff. It has a good thickness to it but use the correct side! If not it tends to streak easier.
 If you're getting streaks, use (or get) a colorless blender if it's available in the markers you chose (and I wouldn't chose a brand without one). Just remember, it's an eraser! It blends by removing.
 I have to agree with Cosmicgirl. Get a good gray scale set. Even if you don't have the exact color to shade with you can use the gray's. I have a fondness for grayscale anyway and tend to just do those and I am happy.
 And my last bit of advice, layer, layer, layer. Don't be afrais to layer. I need to do that more and I tend to stop myself when I know I should do more.
 
 PS. Love the word befuddled vincentvanbuck. I use it all the time, one of my favorite words! It's so fun to say!!!!  Grin
