I recently bought a Paperchase scrapbook album to use as an art journal because I want to do more sketching and playing around with paint and ideas.
I also found that I was trying to complete a finished painting every week without spending much time sketching or having fun in my other journals.
So decided to start a new journal for 2016!!
I decided to get the Paperchase scrapbook album as the pages are quite thick and shouldn’t be prone to buckling with very wet mixed media, the square format is nice and will be interesting to use over a 2 page spread, plus the paper cut cover is very pretty.
I tested the pages with a variety of paints to see how well the paper stood up to different applications and made a video below.
