everyone seems to be choosing stitch bound books.  is it ok to take another route? I've only done stitch bound books once and I was thinking of choosing an easier method of "binding"

Well, I hope so, because I have an "easier" method in mind, too.

Me, three. I have a great cover, and today I was able to start some pages....looking forward to Saturday and Sunday afternoon, baseball on tv, and me at the kitchen/sewing/craft table.

A good source for those waterbrushes is JetPens.com, that place is another place my wallet takes a beating. Also the only place I can find my favourite Pigma Micron colour/size combo.

waterbrushes and here too

Zoma, I don't dare open that link. I would really like a set of koi watercolors too! So far I have only worked with Crayola. I can't blend for snap peas! I did acquire a couple of half used water color sets from an art teacher... I don't know what kind of quality they are but hopefully they will help my art improve. Smiley

I've been having lots of fun talking with my partner! Time to go through my paper stash to pull out things she may like

That's exactly what I thought! I've seen those brush pens advertised, but have never tried them. They sound like a must-have!

I bought some lovely paper today. On sale for about 1/4 what I'd expected to pay. "Why is it so cheap?" I asked the very helpful clerk. "Oh, I think it's been discontinued," she said. Isn't that always the way? You find something that's both good and cheap and you'll never be able to buy it again!

Wulf, I wish that was the case with my favorite rub-ons. The art store has these rub on sheets used for manga drawing in the clearance section. They have been there for months. I've picked up a couple in two different patterns but they are $8 a pop!

I've moved my workspace from the backyard to the front porch...for some reason working in the front of the house gets my paper a lot less dirty.  Huh I've recently come up with a great solution for storing my workspace. I used to layer wax paper all over the dining room table but once paint dried on them they became bulky and difficult to fold.

Cut a gallon zip loc bag down on side and across the bottom so it lays flat. Use masking tape to tape it down to your work surface. Stretch the bag so there are no wrinkles (not pictured lol) When you are finished and the paint is dry fold the bag and crease it along the zip loc zipper. It now stores as flat and as thick as cardstock paper Smiley Do they make bags bigger than gallon size? For bigger projects I'll have to go back to laying down wax paper but I am currently out. If I hadn't run out I would have never tried the bag!

Maybe a flattened garbage bag would work for larger projects? And you could cut it smaller if need be?

Where I live we do not have shops around that sell that sorts of supplies. At least none that I know of. That is the bad thing about living where I do.

I'm not in this swap, but I saw this and wanted to chime in... I've seen Ziplocs in sizes up to 3 gallons at my local grocery store--they're really quite large. If you need something even bigger, check in the storage bin aisle of a place like Walmart--they sell Ziplocs that are like 3' tall (for comforters and such)! Great idea, I'll have to remember it for my next messy project!
