Una's Saekdong Mosaic Adventurer's 9x12 Watercolor Journal


Saekdong Mosaic - 9x12" Gold - Disc-Bound Adventurers Watercolor Journal 

This muted mosaic journal pattern hides a colorful surprise.

Every sketch takes you on a new journey, and this black and white mosaic road will lead you to a new colorful landscape ready to paint.

The saekdong - reminiscent color arrangement (multi-color strips or stripes interior) exemplifies not only the aesthetic sensibilities of ancient Koreans, but also their wisdom and pursuit of good luck.

The colors inside are not just about visual satisfaction, but also an expression of the beliefs in the opposing forces of yin and yang. And the five principles, wu xing, believed to determine fortunes and color usage to ward off evil and call down good luck. 

Granted we're using black in the pattern representing negative forces, we all know that with practice there will still be painting days both good and bad. 

Let your enthusiasm for painting start here with 24 sheets of paper ready to capture all the wishes, good luck, and desire to not waste any chance to call down good fortune in sketches that cross your path.

Love it!

A simple question led to a very thoughtful email exchange about the possibility of customizing a sketchbook. I appreciated so much the attention and care put into creating the final product. Love the fabric and inner lining paper — texture, special pattern — and the size and overall quality of the paper.

Thank you so much Una! Glad you love your new journal. I appreciate your input and glad we could collaborate to make this custom design for you! - Ryan
