This is the cover for my new Journal! It is going to be the seventh one, and is currently unnamed. I don't usually name them until I reach the end. I love the way the back of embroideries look! So chaotic.
For anyone interested, I have been smitten with the Strathmore Hardbound 500 Series Mixed Media Art Journal for a while now. This will be my third (maybe fourth?) time using it for my journal, and I super recommend it! I find the pages are thick enough to handle watercolor, acrylic, gouache, and ink without being so stiff that it isn't pleasant to flip through anymore. (Copics will still bleed through the pages, but what DON'T Copics bleed through, am I right?) They're pretty durable, I take my journals everywhere with me and that includes some messy hikes and being put in purses that could give Mary Poppins a run for her money. I've been on the lookout for one of these in a square aspect ratio, do those exist? If anyone sees one, HIT ME UP.
