By SL Brown
from Land of Enchantment
The drawing paper's surfaces are both quite nice, as one would expect from Strathmore, but I do not care for the paper measurement including the part punched for the rings, whoch makes the useable part undersized. The paper is not very white (poor brightness), so colored pencil colors look dull and a bit muddy on it. The mixed media paper is actually the best I have found for that description, but still won't take much of a wash, and though it is very slightly whiter than the drawing paper, it is still not bright enough for my tastes. As a result, these books seem a bit overpriced for my needs (a go everywhere sketchbook for ink, watercolor washes and colored pencil). I suspect a lot of the price is the two hard covers, which truly are the best out there and stand up to being carried everywhere, but a single hard cover, true size, and better brightness would have suited me better. I loved the pocket-sized 3-1/2 x 5" sketchbooks and was so very sad that Strathmore chose to discontinue that size. So ... mixed feelings.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED!
from Bend OR
These visual journals are used in a journaling/collage/art group and recreated into sacred wisdom journals for Wise Women using mixed media techniques. The paper quality is perfect for water color, acrylics, collage, etc. They are mixed media journals with hard covers that hold up fantastically. A good buy for participants when purchased in quantity.
Big order, arrived early!!

I love this Bristol. It's heavy & smooth. I use it for acrylic, pen & ink, colored pencil.
We used the journals for an elementary art and writing camp journal.Students used many different media and the results were great!
from Okanogan County, Washington
Perfect size and content for use as an art journal, blessing journal or just diary/journal.I love to decorate the pages with stickers, stamps, cut outs, articles or anything I want. I cover the front and back of the journal with pretty cardstock, inside and out. Embellished pages make journaling much more fun!Strathmore Visual Journals, whether the multi media or watercolor version are my choice for the base of what I want to create.

Love The Book's
By Amanda M.
from Brisbane, Australia
As I do my art courses, these books have come in quite handy. I am working on a lot of various colour techniques. Especially watercolour, collage, pastels and so forth. And this book has just been wonderful to use. I wish these were this price in Brissy, but i digress, thanks dick-blick!
Love these journals~!
I use this for a daily visual/written journal. It holds up well to whatever media I'm using, altho admittedly an alcohol-based marker pen will bleed thru. That's my only complaint. The paper is smooth, easy to draw on, and doesn't snag my 01 nibbed drawing pens. Great product! I have bought it before and will buy them again. The size is perfect for me, btw...anything bigger discourages me and keeps me from starting a new page. I bought this myself, so there is nothing to disclaim. I'm a satisfied customer.
from Grafton MA
Bought it for more sketching on the go. The paper is better then I thought it would be! Smooth is definetly what I needed
