I have a new tool for my art room. I make watercolor journals with my rubicoil, which I love; but sometimes I want the ability to remove a page to work on. At Staples, they have this customized notebook system called the Arc. The notebooks with a leather cover cost about $19.95 and is filled with some paper. It's not a bad price and I might go back and buy one. Looking at this Arc, I realized I could punch my own paper and create a notebook using scraps of card stock,scrapbook paper,transparent sheets, and watercolor paper. So I bought the Arc punch,the notebook rings, and some of their pages. I then went to Michaels and found some heavy plastic clear scrapbook paper with a simple design. I bought two of those. When I got home I cut the heavy plastic down to 7 x 10. then I cut down my watercolor paper; transparent sheets,and went through my scrapbook scraps. I assembled the pieces and created my own notebook with all the paper I like using. I even got inspired to do a quick watercolor on a transparent sheet. Now I can't wait to use this and fill the pages with my art.
