As you’ll hear me say in the video, I like tags. I like the shape and how versatile they are. They’re great for layering or folding into little books.
The reason you rarely see me work with tags is because I’m not fond of the manila surface. I don’t like the way it absorbs sprays or how the yellow-ish color affects every other one I apply.
Enter the laser and watercolor paper, specifically Strathmore’s 140# cold pressed version, and suddenly I have tags that are perfect to play and create with.
If the paper name sounds familiar, it’s likely because you’ve heard me mention it when referencing our Disc Bound Watercolor Journals. We use that same paper for both products. And speaking of disc bound, in the video you’ll also see that along with the standard # 5, 8, 10, and 12 plain tags there are the same four sizes with notches cut so they can be disc bound too.
Even better? The notch spacing is identical, so you can swap pages and tags on the discs and they’ll integrate seamlessly. Think of the variety of journals you can create!
