Hello Marlene! Thank you, I remember you showing us pictures of his large arrangement for full sheet watercolor paper. I would love to see the instructions, or purchase one from you if you have any left over.  I really appreciate it.

I've been doing more outdoor studies, and am having the darndest time holding my sketchbook. Especially those tiny ones (5x10"- I call tiny).  I have a super light weight travel tripod, bought for the purpose of lightweight sketching. 

Do I need an adaptor or anything? 

Thank you so much, I appreciate it very much,
Linda

I made a number of these (very inexpensive) mounts for students and would be happy to send you one.
