GIVEAWAY: Let Your Creativity Flow with Stillman & Birn Art Journals! [Closed]

5 Jun

We’ve got three fabulous Stillman & Birn art journals to give away to our loyal followers! (Please read through all the contest details at the bottom of this post before entering!)

Each sketchbook is 6 by 8 inches with pH neutral paper. They vary in their paper weight and purpose, but each has internal and surface sizing that provides exceptional wet strength, and is compatible with precision erasing techniques. Best of all, the heavy-duty binder boards are incredibly tough and will protect your sketches, paintings, and more while resisting warpage. If you’re looking for the best in sketchbooks, look no further than Stillman & Birn!

And the three art journals to give away are …

Stillman & Birn Alpha Side Spiralbound Sketchbook
  • Media: Dry & Light Washes

    Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook this would be the one for me as i work in pencil and ink all the time;and sketchbooks are were all my drawing live. :)

  2. Diana Moll June 5, 2012 at 9:25 AM #

    The Pen and Ink sketchbook (100 lb plate finish) would be sufficient for my needs, I’m working an illustration style that incorporates pencil, ink and rubber stamp impressions. Pick me!!!

  3. Aisazia June 5, 2012 at 9:30 AM #

    Ohhh I would love to try the Stillman & Birn Alpha Side Spiralbound Sketchbook! I use pen and ink but would love to try colored pencil or light washes of water color over them using this awesome paper. :D Check out my blog for some sketches. I need to practice coloring more. XD

  4. Angel June 5, 2012 at 9:48 AM #

    All look great, but I am thinking the Epsilon side would work for me. Actually, if I win, a perfect gift for my artist daughter who would certainly appreciate a good, solid sketchbook.

    Best, and keep on blogging.

  5. Judy Hudgins June 5, 2012 at 10:13 AM #

    I would probably go with the beta and use it to art journal my summer…

  6. Zoe June 5, 2012 at 10:46 AM #

    Generous offer for a lovely choice of the Stillman & Birn sketchbooks. My favorite is the Alpha, and I’d love to test out the Beta.

  7. Paul June 5, 2012 at 10:58 AM #

    I would go with the Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook and doodle to my heart’s content. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Good luck to all!

  8. Aimee June 5, 2012 at 11:09 AM #

    The “Beta” would be ideal, but I’m open to trying many different things. Options,that’s what it’s all about. :)

  12. Adrienne June 5, 2012 at 11:41 AM #

  13. Sara Anderson June 5, 2012 at 12:51 PM #

    The Beta would be fun for mixed media adventures. I like to draw then paint and collage in layers.
    OR
    The Epsilon would be great to use my pen collection in for drawing and sketching with notes.
    Thank you for the chance.

    I would love to try the Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook for pen & ink drawings! Because I have zero talent with any other media. Sadly.

  20. Teri June 6, 2012 at 5:29 AM #

  21. Joe June 6, 2012 at 6:12 AM #

  24. Roger June 6, 2012 at 10:21 AM #

    Unfortunately, I have zero artistic talent, but both my children do. So, I would give a Stillman & Birn Alpha to one of them.

  25. sherry June 6, 2012 at 10:27 AM #

    I’d love the alpha side spiral for an art journal/coaching journal this Summer. Heck I might have to make a dream book with it…

    Went to the blog using the link at the bottom of your page next to the WordPress logo and was sent to wordfaction host with an error message.

    • europeanpaper June 6, 2012 at 11:06 AM #

      Thanks for catching that Sherry! We’re working on fixing it now :)

  26. Sue Cassidy June 6, 2012 at 10:29 AM #

  28. Jakki Keens Garlans June 6, 2012 at 11:13 AM #

    I would love the Epsilon notebook as I have just started to zentangle and find that the results are better on higher quality paper – having a nice notebook to carry round would be a joy!

  29. Barbara Moore June 6, 2012 at 11:26 AM #

    I would love to have the first book since it is for mixed media and would take paint etc.

  30. Barbara Moore June 6, 2012 at 11:26 AM #

  31. nancy j quire June 6, 2012 at 12:18 PM #

  32. Jeanne Kasten June 6, 2012 at 1:17 PM #

    I would use the Stillman & Birn Beta Side Spiralbound Sketchbook because it sounds like it would work best for gel pens. I’d take it along on my trip this summer to Oregon and Washington!

    Beta, but any of the three would be lovely :)

    Use would be a tough call – have a couple of multimedia projects, but also thinking of gift recipients who would be equally excited.

    Decisions, decisions . . .

  35. Sarah E. June 6, 2012 at 7:05 PM #

    I’d choose Stillman & Birn Beta Side Spiralbound Sketchbook and start the a collage-a-day project I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I plan to make a collage every day for a month (or more) chronicling my journey through graduate school and becoming a social worker.

  36. Kevin Finklea June 6, 2012 at 8:00 PM #

    Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook would be my choice. I travel with fountain pens; which I use for all my notes and small drawings when travelling.

  37. Addie Benson June 6, 2012 at 8:03 PM #

    I would use the “Stillman & Birn Alpha Side Spiralbound Sketchbook” to generate sketches for the paintings I will be creating for my upcoming opportunity to display my art at a local cafe! =)

  38. sue jacobs June 6, 2012 at 10:02 PM #

    I would love to win the Stillman & Birn Beta Side Spiralbound Sketchbook! I’m a zentangle artist but I do lots of multimedia things with my zentangles so this would be perfect!

  39. Raven Knight June 6, 2012 at 11:45 PM #

    I would really love to try the Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook for pen and ink drawings. This would be ideal for my concept drawings and maps for an RPG computer game I have been working on since graduating from ITT Technical Institute with a degree in Digital Entertainment and Game Design. A high quality sketch book that I would fill with only my best drawings.

  40. Kayli Brooks June 7, 2012 at 8:40 AM #

    As a graphic design student I would use the Stillman & Birn Beta Side Spiralbound Sketchbook to create my project ideas.

  41. Julie Shatswell June 7, 2012 at 8:41 AM #

    I prefer the third choice. Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook
    Best for Pen & Ink Drawings
    I would use for my doodles, done with Sakura Micron Pens. Tangle Doodles is what I call them.

  42. leslie herger June 7, 2012 at 9:38 AM #

    Man I would love to get one of the Stillman&Birn sketchbooks. I would fill it up with my sketches done at the cafe!

  43. RC June 7, 2012 at 12:58 PM #

    Oh, I love them all! If forced, I think the Beta would be the most suitable for me…

  44. Alexandra June 7, 2012 at 1:12 PM #

    I would use the Beta and use it to get back into drawing again. It’s been so long! Nothing inspires like a beautiful new skectchbook :)

  45. Mayla M June 7, 2012 at 1:35 PM #

    I like the Stillman & Birn Beta Side Spiralbound Sketchbook. I would use it as a travel journal while on our trip to Texas. I can see adding pictures, stickers and ticket stubs.

  46. Donald H June 7, 2012 at 2:59 PM #

    I would love to add an Epsilon sketchbook to my collection. I do quite a bit of ink drawings and would love to see how this paper takes ink.

  47. Sheila Flener June 7, 2012 at 3:01 PM #

    The alpha, because I want to take it with me while touring Kentucky and Fallingwater this summer.

  48. Abigail June 7, 2012 at 3:48 PM #

    I would love any of them but the epsilon spiral bound would be awesome because I draw mostly in ink and pencil. Thank you so much for an awesome contest.

  49. Traci June 7, 2012 at 4:30 PM #

    The Alpha. I would give it to my 8 yr old son. While I consider myself an artist, and have taught him most that I know, I see that his raw talent and pure imagination far exceeds mine and I can only encourage it. I’m confident we’ll all be staring at his work in awe some day.

  50. Noelle R Edwards June 7, 2012 at 4:50 PM #

    I would love to win the 3rd notebook (Stillman & Birn Epsilon side spiralbound sketchbook)I recently opened a shop on Etsy. One of the things I am doing is putting my doodles and designs on ceramic mugs. I love sketchbooks for so many reasons :) Ink and pencil are the best for creating ideas and flowing with them. Thank you for this opportunity :)

  51. Joanne DeWald June 7, 2012 at 4:55 PM #

    the alpha. i would give it to a friend of mine. he’s just used up the sketchbook i gave him in january and he does wonderful watercolors. i’d love to give him this new one ! thanks. joanne

  52. Marsi June 7, 2012 at 6:11 PM #

    My friend Joanne posted this on her FB page and I could not click on the link fast enough. My weakness….journals!

    The Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook looks fantastic.

    I am going to the website NOW!

  53. Elizabeth Owen June 7, 2012 at 6:55 PM #

    although I mostly work with textiles, I also love pen and ink and watercolor drawing.
    So a “B” spiral bound is perfect for me. I have just discovered your wonderful products!!! And have several notebooks already

  54. Kevin S June 7, 2012 at 8:45 PM #

    Definitely the Stillman & Birn Epsilon Side Spiralbound Sketchbook. I sketch in pencil and it would be perfect!

  61. Thomas Johnson June 8, 2012 at 7:32 AM #

    I like multi media. The beta is for me!

  62. Fred Pitts June 8, 2012 at 8:30 AM #

    I’d like to win either the Epsilon wire bound 9×12 or the Alpha wire bound 9×12! My preferred drawing media these days is fountain pen and ink or technical pen with light water color washes.

  63. Clayton Bulice June 8, 2012 at 9:16 AM #

    If I should win this giveaway, I think I would prefer the Stillman & Birn Alpha Side Spiralbound Sketchbook. I am just beginning to sketch and I write frequently. This would fit my habit – er, hobby – quite nicely. Thank you in advance.

  64. Paul Sheridan June 8, 2012 at 10:07 AM #

    I’d be happy with any of them…

  65. Annie June 8, 2012 at 1:37 PM #
