Review of my new ‘hand-book’ journal, manufactured by GLOBAL ART MATERIALS, INC
Timaree was right.
In a word……meh.
I’m glad it was on sale.
It said it would take ‘light’ watercolor.
Not so much.
The paper curls and warps with the slightest application of water.
I used my new Copic Multiliners and my good ole Sharpie pens.
Not too bad but the paper does ‘lift’ and you get little fibers and globs on the pen tips.
I also used Copic markers for color and they bleed through the pages terribly.
On the plus side….it makes the journal less ‘precious’ so I don’t have to feel hesitant about ruining it.
Which is always a drawback for me.
I’m afraid to make a mistake! Like it matters in a sketchbook! LOL
Plus it's small enough to tuck in a pocket or purse.
And it's CUTE, so there's that too!
