I try to have fun with all the points about notebooking as far as it's the only way to keep passion and perseverance. However I found out finishing some pages and filling gaps is a task I don't enjoy. It's a necessary step before scanning the notebooks and store them.
August 6th is something like my second birthday. It's the day I started my round the world trip, a collection of experiences which changed my mindset.
To celebrate it, I created a folder with photos from different trips during the years. Just a short sample! I will add more files from time to time.
It's easy to know the chronological order since the hair in my head is decreasing with time.

I'm still trying to find the perfect paper even when I know it doesn't exist. However I feel lucky to try these AMAZING Hahnemühle papers. They were so kind to send me some samples of my favorite one: Verge paper (also known as laid paper) in cream color.
All of them are excellent. See the amazing texture! Watercolors look better than ever. No see through, feathering, bleeding, ghosting, etc. The only finding I detected is the surface could peel easily when using an eraser (see photo bellow). Maybe I found the way to transform this weakness into a positive power.
Serious candidate for my next notebook.
