Finding Stickers That Work With Fountain Pens

07/08/2022

From a search for new ways to decorate journal pages, paper washi stickers are proving to be a very good option. Mine work with fountain pen ink although they can take a minute or two to dry. PVC stickers are plastic and repel ink so read listings to be sure you are buying the paper kind. The package I purchased contains paper as well as plastic stickers, the latter of which are waterproof and attractive for decorating journal covers amongst other uses.

The Traveler’s Journal in the photo has a 4mm grid for size reference. I have two additional packages on order, eucalyptus leaves and vintage flowers, for their small dimensions and subject matters. Combining them with my new rubber stamps ought to make my journals and notebooks colorful and lively, just the thing for summer.

Something New In My Arsenal

07/06/2022

Sometimes my journal pages need a little flair, but not a time consuming one. So I purchased a few stamps to embellish my writings. Nothing fancy but they certainly are quick to use. With the aid of a blotter, I can close my journal immediately which is handy when I want to keep things private. Colored ink will make them lively and eye-catching not that any eyes ought to be perusing my journal. However, the planner on my desk is an open book, just ripe for some additional adornments and admiration. Dang, this could get addictive!

Transparent Sticky Notes

07/01/2022

Writing samples on a transparent sticky note. It really is just plastic in the form of a post-it and not suitable for most pens. Disappointed in the performance as it would have been perfect for my latest project, that is if I could write better on it. There will be uses for them so they won’t go to waste. The Pilot Twin Marker works very well on the paper allowing me to mark up a page without leaving a mark. Hmmm. Lots of possibilities there.
