LevARTation Sheen & Shade Journal | makes your inks sing!
This journal is named LevARTation because it is light as a feather and lifts the spirit as you use it. It can be used with all art supplies, however LevARTation is especially good for inks that have sheening and shading properties, eg: the Gods and Monsters inks! Specialty inks behave completely differently on this paper!

The LevARTation journal contains specialty paper that was originally developed for airmail many decades ago. It is light, smooth and works beautifully with ink which made it perfect for letter writing. Fast forward to today and we appreciate LavARTation paper for it’s creative possibilities!
The transluscent LevARTation paper has a lovely crinkle effect and feel as you use it, sounding almost like glassine paper. The more water you add, the more of a crinkle you will get. What would annoy us in other papers delights us in this paper, as it adds to the entire experience of using this journal. The crinkles smooth back out over time, but the ‘used’ pages’ have a delightful worn in quality that is hard to explain… it is something that needs to be experienced!
I have tried to capture the experience in the video below.

What Jane says
LevARTation has no wood or cotton pulp and belongs to the ‘Onion Skin’ family of papers that include Midori Traveller journal, Tomoe River, vintage air mail and Bachuan. These are all favourites with journalers, planners, bullet journalers, calligraphers and paper fanatics in general because of the way that inks, markers, pencils and watercolours glide onto the paper, and sit in place.
