Art Journaling

I tried Copic markers with my journal and they bled through, what can I do?

If you are using watercolor with your journal, you need to use watercolor ground on the pages or insert watercolor pages into the journal. Here is a blog post with more information. http://www.noexcusesart.com/blog/2014/01/adding-watercolor-ground-to-your-pages/ 

What kind of watercolor paints do you suggest?

For the beginner looking for their first full palette of colors you cannot go wrong with Lukas Paints:

The other watercolor paints I  use are Daniel Smith Fine Watercolors:

What planner do you suggest?

We recommend only a few planners right now. And some are becoming hard to find so we continue to look for others:

  1. Desk Diary by Barnes and Noble – http://bit.ly/1p88T4k
  2. The Country Diary by (which is possible discontinued we are checking)
  3. ARC System™ by Staples –  http://bit.ly/1de5L7h (the link will take you to our bit.ly account where we list the nessesary pieces) Here is a article and video Gina wrote about it http://www.noexcusesart.com/blog/2014/01/i-found-a-new-planner/
    We have developed a printable calendar for use with the ARC system. You can find it here: ARC Printable Planner
