OMG!! Look what i made....first time ever...

Hey Gang...i'm just so excited that i managed to put together a small mini journal. It's not all dolled up with allot of bling and embellishments as i'm going to be using this daily and if i wanted to bring it with me shopping to pick up more markers it will slip right into my purse. I've never attempted one of these before as i don't have the right tools and they just look too complicated. Well i managed with what i have and this is what i came up with to keep track of my promarkers. Colours as well as my combinations that work well..









As you can see it's very simple....i wish i had a cinch to bind it but i made due with my cropadile and some rings. I have a little title page for each section and a few pages of each for the hair & skin, practice sheets as well as colour combos. I created a couple pockets on the front and back cover. I also have a sheet of acetate to use behind the paper you are colouring in case of bleeding. I was going to mount each paper on a thin cardboard like a cereal box but i didn't know if the rings i had would fit all the pages then. I used some bobunny paper...well i only used 1.25 sheets and the rest is kraft paper. The only major problem i had is i use a laser printer and my papers curl a bit...i'm gonna stack this between some heavy books and hope it straightens for me. There are a few other pages that you don't see..like a blank promarker page, flexmarker page and each header is a page as well, i just cut out the title. 

 If any of you PROMARKER users like this, you can find it HERE!!!

This turned out great.
I made one for my Copic markers, and I brought it with me on my trips. It sure came in handy to not buy doubles.
