I am coming to the end of my second DottedSquare.com journal now, and I am happy to say that the paper used is suitable for a variety of medium. At the initial design stage, various types of papers were tested with watercolour, ink, felt and marker pens etc.
Papers tested at design stage
What is your favourite medium used in your journals and sketchbooks? If you ask me, the answer would vary depending on what I am using at the time since I don’t often stick to one for long.
Here are some mediums that I have used on my DottedSquare.com sketchbooks.
Watercolour and ink with stamps. The paper does not buckle much with light watercolour application. The paper stock is thick enough that both sides of the paper can be used.
In this piece, I used felt pens (Faber Castell artist pens).
Pigment ink and felt pens
And more watercolour.
Right now, I am using watercolour pencils and colour pencils.
