Here are water brush pens, paper, blank journals, paper brands and a video about using water color pencils with a plain-water brush.
Yeah, i need this. now.
I look for items that are either free shipping or Amazon “PRIME” because the Prime account is one of my family’s favorite ways to shop. But, if you don’t have a Prime account, you could browse by searching for “strathmore mixed media” and that will bring up the requisite plethora of journal and paper options. Here are my favorite Prime picks. I considered price, paper weight/type and the overall product. There are so many more for you to try, depending on your criteria. Don’t get overwhelmed, just keep on Soul Journaling!
