An Easy Way To Decorate A Journal

08/05/2022

This technique could be accomplished with all sorts of themes. I am partial to eucalyptus leaves as well as palm fronds both of which would work well. The stickers look like they were made with washi paper. It’s delicate but the colors are slightly muted and could easily be matched to fountain pen ink.

On Amazon, I found a camellia and an azalea made by the same company as the washi in the video, plus a set of  black, white, and gold stickers that looks promising.

Have you ever done something like this? How did it turn out?

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.

Adding Inspiration To Journal Pages

02/20/2020

My earliest memories of stickers are the stars my piano teacher used to mark the rare occasion my playing measured up to her standards. I was anything but an apt pupil. Nevertheless, those shiny stars were good for a modest sense of accomplishment. I hadn’t given them a thought in the ensuing years until I discovered these 44mm x 44mm Van Gogh stickers.

Now I can embellish journal pages or decorate unremarkable covers with small versions of some of my favorite paintings. The colors are inspiring and isn’t that the perfect thing to encourage filing a journal page.

There are several sets of washi tapes and stickers I would like to buy though on most of my journal pages, hand drawn doodles fill the margins leaving little space for stick-on additions.

I do enjoy variety on my written pages. Do you? How do you make your pages visually interesting?
