Markings Journal Review
The spine makes a nice crackling noise I like, it smells clean, leathery with a hint of citrus, tree like.
This journal is worth it all day long and I picked it up for 3.99 on a clearance rack.
Cuteness is fantabulous, I love it so much it needs to be special, I won't write in it, yet. I am in love with it, OMG I am insane, it has a nice weight to it, feels solid.
The manila accordion in the back is lovely and the black ribbon adds to it elegance.
I absolutely love college ruled paper in makes me crazy lol, The lines are like a grey/periwinkle, the paper itself is vanilla colored, smooth and dry. The rounded edges are cut nicely, there is just a hint of an evenness, but I like it, it adds character to the journal.
Things I love about this journal:
The elastic band is perfect for throwing it in a bag and trusting it won't get ruined.
The stitching really jumped out to me with this one, i'm a sucker for craftsmanship.
Its hard cover yet flexible and has movement, I write in bed so this helps a lot.
This colors are so vibrant I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted, but I think I am going to get more, haha.
These journals inspire you to create and express, I am hooked, way to go guys :)
