5 Days of Writing Tools: Journaling Pens

Journaling Pens

 

As the name suggests, journaling pens are great for journaling and writing captions on a layout. They come in a variety of colors and thicknesses for every need. Get writing with these tips!

 

Size it up. Check the tip size. Larger numbers (like .08) produce a thicker line, while finer tips have smaller numbers (.01).

Start basic. Black is a versatile color that no scrapbooker should be without. From there, add colors that you use often.

Test drive it. Most scrapbooking stores allow you to test a pen on a scratch pad to see if you like the way the ink flows and the pen feels. The more comfortable you are with the feel and flow, the more likely you are to write well with it.

Play it safe. The best journaling pens are acid-free and fade-proof so your brilliant prose will stay readable for years to come.
