Imagine being in a comfortable space when you are feeling down and pouring out your heart to someone who listens to your thoughts and emotions with no judgements. To make it better, let’s say that you are not charged by the hour for venting out your problems. Sounds amazing? As surprising as it might sound, it is none other than an Art Journal.
Art journal is very similar to your regular journal but it incorporates images, patterns and colors with writing. Words and art are two things that are very powerful. Together they can incredibly express all those feelings that flit across your mind. Neorah’s art journal is the best that is available in the market as it made of European Vegan Leather. It comes in aesthetically appealing colors that are absolutely beautiful.
The best thing about this journal is that its papers are of 180 gsm thickness. It can take several layers of paint including watercolors, gouache and acrylic. So, you can express your heart’s content not just with a pen, but also with a paint brush. You also don’t have to restrict yourself to just one medium. With the art journal, you have the freedom to explore. You can try watercolors one day, gouache the next and so on.
It also works great for a variety of pens like brush pens, fountain pens, Gelly roll pens, alcoholic markers, midliners, micron pens, fine liners etc. With a variety of art supplies, you can make your day colorful and scintillating.
The art journal is minimally debossed, so you personalize the cover as you like with stickers, art work or any other art journal cover ideas that you can think of. The best thing about an art journal is that it is a personal outlet. You can be as creative as you want with no pressure of having to be perfect. You will feel lighter as you indulge in the creative process and watch as your confused mind, creates something unique and stunning on the page. It teaches you the art of living as you learn to appreciate beauty even in imperfection.
Neorah’s art journal has many more advantages. Its pages are numbered and it comes with an index page that has Date, Topic and Pages. This makes it easier to use your Neorah art journal a book or a journal series. I found another feature of the Neorah art journal very useful. The pages are dot grid and have a center marking. This enables me to make symmetrical drawings like blueprints and human portraits very easily on this art journal.
