Bookmarks in sketchbook - image 1 - student projectHere's my first few bookmarks. Enjoyed doing them, but wasn't impressed with the Moleskine (watercolour) paper as the paint didn't flow cleanly compared to other paper brands. Has anyone else encountered this? I ended up going over the circles in coloured pencil to get the edges sharper and the coverage more consistent.

Also the masking tape didn't stop paint seeping under in places - probably too much paint.
