Our dotGrid is good for…

Stephanie

The other day when I asked what you thought about our dotPads and dotWebbies, we heard you loud and clear that you loved using them! Many of you shared with us your reasons for liking this format by way of how you use it. One suggestion was to use the dots as a guide for pasting things onto the pages. As in Halstead’s image above, “no more crooked tape!”

I keep a special blank book (glue book?) for pasting images which I use for art inspiration – colors, textures and the like. I’m not too particular with how I paste them in, but I can imagine that it would look even better and become more of a work of art in itself if I were using dot paper.

Do you tape/paste things into your journals?

This video shows an inspiration book similar to what I make:

  1. I like the way they keep my writing level, but I’m not smushed down by them the way narrow lines can do. Freedom to let those OBB or BBB nibs dance!

  3. I glue/tape A LOT into my sketchbooks. Everything from fabric swatches to tickets to comics to labels. Glue sticks and tape work best.

  5. Well I really just use my dotgrids for writing the umpteenth draft of any story I’ve got going on at the moment, but I might try one for a collage book at some point in the future.
