Hi all, this just in, Strathmore Softcover Journals are on sale at Amazon! This is the 8″ x 5.5″ softcover portrait watercolor sketchbook. The paper is 300gsm/140lb and there’s 48 pages. All that for just $11.84, that’s 42% off. Obviously it takes watercolor but also anything else you could through at it, pen & ink, gesso, acrylics, glue. It has a sewn binding and a soft cover.
There is also an 8″ x 10″ (exact size is 7.75″ x 9.75″) larger Strathmore Watercolor Journal available for $16.37 if you’re interested in a larger format. You save 36% on that one.
I have one of these and the paper is awesome, it’s their 500 series paper and holds up to any water and washes you want to throw at it. The softcovers are lighter to carry and hold up well. Good luck and go shopping!
PS. I’ll be back soon with the winners of the two Brad Taylor books and the one of a kind bookmarks! If you haven’t signed up, do it today, you have until midnight Pacific Time Aug 29th, 2017!
