Used a fairly heavy watercolor paper (300 g) as I did not have a lighter one. I did not have golden watercolor so I used an acrylic marker by Bine Braendle (German Brand) which works much better for me than the golden Posca marker. One of the notebooks has black and white paper in it, so I can draw with my gel pens. I made some more notebooks. It‘s quite addictive. I sewed them by hand this time instead of with my sewing machine.
