I'm new to mixed media in my scrapbooking, and although I've done a bit of watercolor before, I don't have space to set up an easel to tape my watercolor paper to. Without that, I was having a heck of a time creating watercolor and mixed media backgrounds for my layouts. My pages were bumpy and distorted. This paper is helping! I don't find I need to prep it with gesso just to help it lay flat. I'm no mixed media expert, but I really like this paper.
I LOVE this paper! If you do mix media scrapbooking this paper is a must. I love all of VB products but I think this is my favorite. Combined with gesso this paper can withstand whatever you throw at it.
Extremely impressed with product based on my initial assessment. Beautiful white and the weight / thickness will be perfect for a variety of crafting purposes.. Very happy with this purchase. !
