For Angie who asked a question about the weight of the paper in my journal. I really don't let the weight of the paper worry me too much. My pages really do take quite a bit of abuse with all the layers of paint and sprays. I find if you have the time to let them dry naturally instead of blasting with a heat gun, this helps with the buckling situation so I'm finding it helpful to have more than one journal on the go so that whilst I'm waiting for something to dry, I can work in another book. If I know in advance that it is going to be a very wet page, a base coat of a good quality gesso helps. I really like Claudine Hellmuth's gesso....great coverage. But of course, sometimes you just don't know what you will end up throwing on a page and if the whole wrinkly thing does happen, I'll stick a few pages together after I have finished my work so I always leave a few blank pages either side on the work in progress, just in case.
Hope this helps, Lin
