these are gorgeous, book marking this thread!

I dont know the paper you are talking about, does the 140 refer to the weight of the paper? or is there a particular brand, I am also unclear what you mean by index paper, does that refer to a particular use?

The 140 indicates the WEIGHT of the paper. Index is the kind of paper - very similiar to the weight of index cards, but a bit thicker. The 'brand' I use is Wausa (not promoting them, just as reference). I get mine at a local paper company in Southern California called Kelly Paper (I believe you can order via their website, just Google them!). It is AWESOME. This paper will virtually withstand any type of medium - you can gesso, collage, paint, glue - you name it -- just paint or gesso both sides first and you won't get any wrinkles. The more you layer (be it paint or gesso) the richer the texture of the paper becomes. It is my ONLY choice for art journals!

Thank you to everyone who has left a kind comment here - I was without a computer at home for awhile -- so I am not up to speed on my replies. I appreciate everyone so much for taking the time to leave a comment -- we all have such an opportunity here to learn from one another!

Believe me - it took me about 3 months to get the Coptic stitch right! I refused to give up! Now I have learned the nuances of the stitch as far as tension, etc - and it really paid off!
Thanks for the kudos - it makes me smile  Grin

Those are beautiful. I want need one. I'm gonna google that paper. And the Coptic stitch. What a wonderful idea for an art journal. I bet it makes it sooo much easier to draw when it's flat when opened.

I would looove to see some more pictures of the inside!

I believe that is the correct paper. Wausau #140 White Index. You get 250 sheets for $14.78!! Without putting in my address the freight charge is $7.10 and $1.44 for tax. Which is $23.32. I'm excited to order some.  Grin
