Dear wreck this journal,

heather24242 said: Hi. I was wondering if the paints you use on your journal bleed through or not. I noticed you use acrylic paint which is what I want to use, but I want to know if shows on the next page. Also Is it better or worse to water the paint down? I want to paint galaxy, which requires layering of paints, so do you think it will show through the page? Thanks sooo much!! :)

I usually don’t have much of a problem with my acrylic paints bleeding throught. But I try not to water them down too much, specially the first layer of paint I put on, since the pages show through more when you get them wetter. Good luck with painting your galaxy!

The extended versions have a couple more pages than the original version. But they’re all the same for the different covers.

Thank you!

I use acrylic paints and  mostly use stabilo point 88 pens to write/draw.
Other than that I occasionally use colored pencils. I haven’t found a specific kind of marker I like to color with. Don’t use Sharpies though, they bleed through really badly!

Thank you :)

Place sticky things here
I had a massive amount of stickers that I don’t really use anymore. So I used them for this page. I probably could’ve filled some more pages with them. But these are done :)

Bring this book in the shower with you.
I kept forgetting to bring my journal with me in the shower, so I eventually just took the shower head and aimed it at my journal right after I was done showering. I wrote down the lyrics from an Andrew McMahon song called Synesthesia on the page first.

Collect fruit stickers hereThe Chiquita bananas here had minion stickers on them for a little while. So I decided those would be pretty awesome to use for this page. Other than that, the bottom stickers are from kiwi fruits and the pink heart ones are from Pink Lady apples. The top right corner is a little mix of random stickers.

brokenhurricane-deactivated2014 said: Do you have any suggestions for pens that don't bleed through the pages? I'm using Stabilo point 88 pens at the moment, and they make such a mess of the next two or three pages. Thanks in advance! :)

I use those pens to draw the lines. For coloring I usually use either pencils, acrylic paint or markers. But with markers it depends on which kind of marker you use if it bleeds through to other pages.
As for pens, I’d think gel pens & ballpoint pens are least likely to make a mess on other pages. I just prefer working with those stabilo pens, because I find them nicer to draw with.

Also, I’m wondering if maybe different prints/versions of the book may be made of different kind of paper so they may give different results.
