The end result does look great, though!But I know what you mean about sketchbooks - for me it is hard to find a good one. Stores here don't sell much beyond student quality - which doesn't hold up well to watercolor. *Sigh!*
thanks, Jen - paper is very nice - just not for watercolors ;)Good luck with finding good sketchbooks!
It does look good. Especially love the angled background. The paper sounds like the challenge I had with the regular Moleskine book paper when I worked on the 2011 Sketchbook project. The wc was vibrant on it but lots of ripples and bleed through. I ended up zig-zag stitching 3 pages together. And, because I couldn't take the paper quality seriously, my sketches developed a devil may care looseness that I ended up liking - So...... perhaps playing with your new journal will lead you to new things too :)
Like how it turned out! Journals can be frustrating when it comes to paper. I try to make my own.
Very tricky - but the sketch is brilliant so all is not lost!That's why I prefer to make my own sketchbooks - with my own choice of paper!
Very interesting post, thanks
