Sketchbook Project 2011

 My plan was to spend the entire day working on my book.  I was feeling it.  Putting the first line down felt great; however, when I flipped the page and found bleed through my heart fell to the pit of my stomach.  Just great!  Then my highlighter and crayon did not work well on the paper.  Another aarggh!  I do NOT like the paper at all.

So I took a break and surfed the net looking for a solution to my dilemma.  Ah ha!  I found other Sketchbook Project artists experiencing the same thing.

Some decided to glue two pages together, yuck …. how time consuming.  Then I surfed using the following text, “What is the best pen to use on Moleskin paper?”  Thanks to Bing, I found several links with suggestions.  Viola!  Off to Michael’s (The Art Store is closed on Sundays) to purchase PITT Artist Pens then Office Depot for Pilot Fine Point G-2 and Pentel RSVP Medium Point Assorted Ink (for fun).

I ended up using a PITT, highlighter, crayon, and Prismacolor Colored Pencil, for now.  Need to get a new Sakura Pigma Micron 05.  Tweet …. Tweet
