Stillman & Birn

So my husband bought me a new journal for my birthday in October.
(I put it on my Amazon wishlist. :-))
I just started using it this month, and I'm loving it so far.

It's from Stillman & Birn, and it's part of the "Delta Series".
The paper is Ivory in color, and 180lb./270 gsm in weight.  
It's nice and thick and toothy. 
Filled in with watercolor and white ink

Can't wait to show you a few other pages I've already filled in. :-)

  8. thank you so much, Lissa. xoxo. I painted the background in a green watercolor wash. Before the paint dried, I dropped clean drops of water throughout the pages. This caused the lighter colored back-runs (splatters). Then, once the pages dried completely, I stamped a few white "bubbles" with white acrylic ink. I hope this helps! :-)
