|Here is what I want to bring!|
I need to made a new portfolio,
though. My old one, upper left,
is worn out.
Now, to make a new portfolio. How, you ask? Decide if you want a square or rectangular one, mark off the dimensions on a nice, thick stock or, as I used, watercolor paper, and grab a metal ruler and a bone folder.
|Mark the dimensions, trim and fold using a|
metal ruler and a bone folder. I added a set
of double lines, 1/4" apart, for depth.
|This tool punches and attaches a grommet all at once.|
I don't even know where I got it, but have had it
forever. It is a handy-dandy tool!
Squeeze and attach the grommets. Insert knotted ribbons through my hand-painted tabs. Choose loose drawing papers and some collage scraps to put inside. I'm not on vacation; this is a serious, personal trip, and isn't about making art. I'm packing light compared to what I normally would bring.
|Hurrah, they all fit!|
