    My journal is staring at me I am finishing up some swaps and hope to stay away from the swaps until I get this underway. These little journals are so great...hope to line them up on a bookshelf !

    Question from a Newbie---what is the best kind of glue to use for sticking pages in. Also, what about treating the front cover in order to paint on it? Do u coat it with Gesso? Remember, I am a pretty one-dimentional watercolorist!!

    lilbad i like using gel medium to glue pages in. i usually buy the liquitex brand. pva glue by lineco is also good.

    i think sanding the cover, then gessoing would work to do the cover

    lilbad, I also use Liquitex medium to glue and also sanded book cover slightly and used a little gesso to give me a base to paint on the cover....having said that ...I may wait to do my cover of this one until it is finished so that I can get it on the road faster. Will do the cover if I have time before I need to send it on it's way.
    You can get the Liquitex at Michaels Pat Catan's if you have one of those around you. Art suppy stores also carry some of them.

    I really want to do a Japanese Moleskine circle journal too... I just happened to find one at a reduced cost as well... With the big interest for Japanese circle journals, there should be another one soon, I hope. Or I´ll host one of my own...

    Yes, Dar called me "Blue Buns," when she first saw me at AFA. She was apparently confused between me and Blueskysunburn and got the name all muddled. I told her that I thought the name was funny, but didn't realize that she made a card of me! I will have to check it out. Lilbad has been calling me "Electric Blue," and I like that, as well. Electric Blue Buns is even better! Spilling paint and sitting in it sounds just like something I would do.

    *My theme is: FREE TO BE ME
    *What I'm hoping for: Each artist's own style
    *Key concepts: What inspires you the moment you're ready to play.
    *Color scheme: Absolutely anything, metallics, glitter, matt or bright.
    I hope this is fine for everyone and not too hard.
    I'm so looking forward to everyones art and I'm ready to get started. Thank you again GG for making this happen for us...you're the bestest!
