MINIMAL SUPPLIES, CARRY AND CREATE ANYWHERE
Hot-pressed watercolor paper tile 4x4 inches printed with grid (template provided in the lesson)
Black inking pen, my favorite is the Sakura Micron 01
Black colored pencil. My favorite is the Polychromos
No printer? Optionally use a small ruler and pencil to mark the grid
Optional: use a grid stencil to mark dotted grid. Find a 3.5 inch one here
Optional: create and print your own grid using one of these websites. Remember I do not endorse or own any of these, so caution when using:
1) Gridzzly: super easy to use, my favorite.
2) Incompetech: offers many different options and different selections. Careful with the ads and misleading green buttons.
3) Printablepaper: huge selection of shapes, but doesn't offer option to customize the paper size.
Make your own template!
A really neat idea by Kerri. Mark your own dots on cardstock, tape it with packing transparent tape to make it sturdier and then punch the holes with a thick needle. Brilliant, thank you Kerri!
