And so, I got FRUStrated as hell because the watercolors didn't work on the sketch pad (which the company assured me that the paper was OK for watercolors but hell, ya get what ya pay for I guess and I bought CHEAP.. lol.. and it didn't work because the paper buckled up and it was a MESS but not as much of a mess as me trying to paint acrylics or oils on canvas. At least it wasn't THAT bad!
Sooo... I bought a 12-page-watercolor-journal also spiral-bound but this time very small.. it's something like only 7" x 10". There are only 12 sheets of watercolor paper in the journal and it's spiral bound with a black leather-like cover. Between the sheets are blank sheets of plain paper. I think I'm going to add hand-written poems to the regular sheets.
So, this is my first one... Watercolor w/ pen & ink
"Pink peonies in a blue vase" - clever title, huh? lol
