Mix Media paper erases well and blends easily. The wire bound pads have micro perforated, true size sheets.

It doesn't absorb the water immediately, which is great, since I really love that drippy, splattery look.
The water does make the paper bend and curl, but I've found using a steam iron with the paper in between a bed sheet makes most of the wrinkles, at least the prominent ones, disappear.
Will definitely keep buying!
Overall, I love this sketchbook! I'm always recommending it to other art students! (:
The weight of the paper is enough that it'll probably take the watercolor well, as long as I don't get too wash-y, and certainly enough for pens, with just enough texture to make it feel good without being distracting.
The spiral binding makes it easy to keep open to the page I'm working on, and the pages could easily pull out where they are perforated, but also stay in nicely.
I'm so glad I picked this journal/pad.
BUT I want to make something clear others really have not. This is not water color paper. Heavy water color washes or lots of spray inks make this paper unhappy. This is mostly due to the weight of the paper. It will buckle, ripple, and even pill. Multi-media paper is a trend and not a traditional paper designation. Do not be fooled into thinking this will successfully handle all media.
It is also important to consider using both sides of this paper. Personally I do not. My artist journals are mostly collage but I'll use anything else you can probably think of along with that. I suggest you experiment before you put together a journal with this paper. Since the plain white surface on the reverse is soooo boring I'll do a light water color wash, light spray inks, or a coordinating piece of scrapbook or art paper.
No one paper is perfect for everything. Ask any experienced artist or go to your local real art store (not Michaels). For the price and the utility Canson produces a good compromise.
