Stillman & Birn Art Journal


recently i received a sketchbook make by Stillman and Birn

I Love it!

it is 7x7 inches wirebound
the paper is gorgeous at 180 lb.
and does great with watercolors!



I have been disappointed with many art papers for not holding up to wet paint,
but NOT this journal!


Thank you Stillman & Birn for your gorgeous art paper!
I look forward to trying your other journals.

this little fairy finds joy in sprinkling love upon our land

  3. Hi Tammie. Great drawings. Also it looks like a great book. I just bought a new watercolor book as well. Thanks for sharing. Happy PPF!

  4. These are lovely -- that shower of hearts is especially charming!

    Thanks, too, for the recommendation. That relationship between paper and ink/paint/marker is so important, and as paper prices increase, I've found it hard to find journals with paper that is neither too flimsy nor coated so as to make my inks bead up. So glad you have a journal that is fun to use.

  7. Very nice! Good to know about these journals! I have used a variety of brands, usually having to glue pages together, add watercolor paper, etc.. to handle what I do in them!
