The Perfect Sketchbook


Let’s talk about Sketchbooks! Here are my 3 tips for finding the perfect sketchbook.

1) Size: I like a smaller sketchbook, one I can fit into my purse. I tend to pick one that is 5.5" x 8.5"

2) Paper: I prefer a thick paper, 140lb Mixed Media, or Watercolor. This type of paper will hold up no matter what medium I throw at it.

3) Style: Spiral Bound vs. Bound. I use to love the spiral bound sketchbook but now loving the bound version so I can create over the entire length of the page.


My Favorites:
