Ok family,
I have a tip that you might be interested in. We all know how much time it takes to make a grid. Especially if your lines are not straight. Or you need a bigger grid. So here is my tip. You know those Rotary cutting mats? The ones you use to do quilting? Well they have Grids on them. I bought the big one. It works great for the one inch grids. Or you can go smaller. I expecailly like it if I want to do a larger picture in pencil.  I used this to enlarge the rose for the realistic flower course. So hope this helps.
HAVE A GREAT DAY.      ;D    :clap:

That is a great idea...not too expensive either.  O0
