I've had this Fabriano Artists Journal for a while now, I couldn't get behind it for a long time because it took horribly to ink, led to scratchy edges. This thing was not designed for it...but that was before I was back into prismacolors! This thing is IN-SANE with them! This took me no time at all, MAYBE 20 minutes total, which is crazy. The colors go on vibrantly but you can still have control to build subtle color shifts. There's at least 5 or 6 different tones of paper in it, so expect to see some more of them soon!
