Welcome to Wednesday and our newest MidWeek Muse video which features Strathmore new hardbound and softcover art journals.
When I discovered the journals I was really excited. When I discovered that I could buy them at a much larger than normal discount I was really, really excited. When I worked the numbers and realized that I could offer them at 36% off regular retail prices, I was freaking thrilled!
Once I knew the numbers worked I brought in samples so I could play. During the process of experimenting and playing I came to realize just how nice these journals are. High quality, sturdy paper (mixed media and cold press watercolor) in both soft and hard cover styles. The journals feel great in your hands and are wonderful to create in.
Want to know the very best part, aside from the fantastic pricing? These journals are bound is such a way that there is little to no leakage from one page spread to another. There have been occasions where I’ve completed a spread and seen it become discolored when the wet sprays from an adjacent one have leaked though the stitched binding. Some of the time it’s no big deal, but occasionally it is, which is not fun.
In the video I demo creating pages in both the mixed media and watercolor paper journals, one hardbound and the other soft cover. I have the feeling you’ll be seeing more of these journals as I expect to work in them often!
