Hey guys, I thought I would share this tip with you. You know those plastic sleeve protectors that you use to put papers in to protect them. I took a couple of them and draw different size grids on them. One I use for the picture. The other I put tracing paper over it so I can see the grid. Then I start drawing what ever it is I want to work on. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks, 9a. ( :) )
 I've used the plastic folder grid for photos but never thought about tracing paper on another one.  O0

Nina--I've done the same with ziplocks but the sleeves are better and stiffer.

What a brilliant idea, Nina!!!! Just brilliant!
I have been wondering how I was going to get my grids laminated 'cause theres nowhere around here that can do that. . . . the curse of country living  :2funny:  and this is way less expensive  :heeha:  Yippee  :thankyou: Nina,  :thankyou:

I have now done the brilliant pattented "NINA GRID SYSTEM" for all my grids and just in case anyone is wondering, I used a "Sharpie" fine point, permanent marker.
If you leave the grids overnight or longer, the marks are indeed permanent!
 
I think Nina needs to get the three  :angel: :angel: :angel:  award for such a simple but brilliant (I said that already didn't I) idea!! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

You all are very welcome. I like to share neat tricks that I learn. I also used a sharpie Roxy when I did mine. That way you could see the lines better through the tracing paper.  :hug:
