 Ooh I hope the paper is not too dodgy because I dont think Ill re-bind mine.. (Ill be afraid of it falling apart afterwards)
 Is the paper strong enough to be able to collage stuff like fabric and thicker paper onto it ?

 Im going to order mine today/tonight.

 I agree with the adding of new categories - for those that have already bought theirs it would be frustrating to find a new one added that you loved !

Mmmm...I don't think this paper will hold up well to heavier weight stuff like fabric.  You could always glue a heavier piece of paper onto the page in the book, so you are not having to rebind the whole thing but can still do some heavier duty stuff on the pages.

You could always glue 2 pages together if you needed to make them stronger.

I think I'm going to rebound mine. With fewer pages.  Cheesy

That's another reason to rebind....80 pages is a LOT for me to think about.

 Grin    got mine      *dancing about holding up book*

not sure if I will rebind or glue 3-4 pages together - might just do both.

rebinding would give more space for all the bulk I know I will end up with.

I know I plan to prepaint and do some background collage on the pages as prep sorta of like Teesha Moore does in her you tube demos.

I like her idea of having several pages ready to work in ahead of time.

I'm going to try to work mine like that too, gg. I feel I'll get a little more cohesion if I don't just work each page individually. I can't wait until we all get started and pages are posted to this thread!

I got my sketchbook today! I started my first page, just so I wouldn't lose my idea, but after that I'll probably wait for more inspiration xD
