I’ve recently filled up my 3rd journal. Its filled with written journal entries along with watercolor portrait paintings and other things. For this journal I used the portrait travel journal that I brought at Hobby Lobby. Its a perfect size journal that you can take with you every where you go. Compared to my second journal a strathmore mixed media which is about the same size, this portrait travel journal was much easier to keep open as I work in it. I was hoping to to use my dip ink fountain pen, but it bleed through the paper. Using regular pen was okay. The paper did hold up when I use watercolor. Sometimes after watercolor dried the colors would sometime stain the paper next to it. The same thing would happen when I drew something using the Faber castell artist pen.
