It is a small pocket sketchbook (3.5 in x 5 in) with 60 sheets of unlined paper. This one came from Michaels, but they don't have it anymore. You can buy it on Amazon. Also, Moleskine has a similar one.
I've been using this one as my art journal off and on since March of 2015, but recently have been doing a ton of pages. Several pages a week.
Some of the images have been getting a lot of praise on facebook and on Instagram, so I thought I'd start sharing my favorite pages here weekly.
I had intended for this page to have text on the right-hand page, but couldn't find anything that I felt went with it. So, now its just a stand alone page as it is.
"Break" is my favorite page I did this week. The background was done with watercolor paints and a water brush. The collaged images are all from a lipstick ad in a magazine. You can see more about the thought process behind this one at Break - An Art Journal Page
"Go Bold" started out as a page where I was sticking down scraps of paper that were scattered on my desk after doing "Break". Then I found the gymnast while flipping through another magazine. I liked her black and white against the colored paper scraps
