I finished my Midori refill this past week, and I just love how it feels out of the cover and full of tape, paper, glue and stickers. Being a meager 64 pages, it had only just begun to obtain that thickness that I love. After spending a while with the Midori, I’ve decided that notebook itself is too small for a daily art journal, and I’ll keep it for fine sketches and written journaling only.
I moved most of the things from the Midori pocket into the beautiful PaperBlank that Eléonore gave me. There are so many pages, and there is so much room in each spread! It’s very wide, and the pages are lined and heavy. My first entry was after a long day, so I just painted, glued and doodled till my heart was content. The paper held up very well under several layers of acrylic paint with glue and ink on top. Today, I’ll be pulling out the watercolors, so we’ll see how that goes!
