For quite a while I have been trying to figure out all the details so that I can actually get my Copic Swatch Journal going.  I have started it a few times and found things that I didn’t like about them.

Here is the latest version that I am very happy with:

  1. Page Size:  1/2 letter.  This seems to be a size that I like.  I also have a planner this size and am working on recipe book this size.  It seems to be manageable while still allowing for big pages.
  2. I created color coded tags and glued them in the order of the rainbow with browns and grays at the end.
  3. The small Copic book fits.  While I don’t need this as much any more (see post later this week), it have it!
  4. I finally found a picture that worked for me.  I wanted something with multiple areas to color that allowed for shading, something fun that made me smile, and something that would still be fun colored with non-traditional colors for the image.  I found it randomly on Instagram. I love this elephant.
