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:
- 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.
- I created color coded tags and glued them in the order of the rainbow with browns and grays at the end.
- The small Copic book fits. While I don’t need this as much any more (see post later this week), it have it!
- 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.
