New Journal Supplies | March 2016

This past month has been a time for experimenting with different art supplies. I wanted to share what I’ve acquired so far, since I’ve been having so much fun playing these new things. Tim Holtz stains are my favorites so far. The wash of color adds character to my otherwise stark white pages and really makes my bold black ink pop. And I’ve really gotten into stamping and decided to spend the money on the quality and elegance of Cavallini and Co products, which I very much enjoy. To use those stamps, I like the VersaMagic Chalk Inks, which don’t cause any bleeding or too much shadowing through Midori insert paper; the 013 insert takes these chalk inks very well.

I also mention a blog SaltnPaperica I’ve recently been enjoying, by Erica Choy. It’s nice to seek inspiration from other journalers. She’s got a great tutorial on making your own vintage collage stickers. And finally, Pomp and Posey that I’ve come across in my search for Par Avion stickers, which seem so popular that they are hard to come by. This shop has them and some other great products (like the much coveted Midori Traveler’s Notebook Pan Am writing boards!) They do priority shipping, so everything came well packaged and quickly, though there was a slight order mix up. I emailed offering to return the mistakenly sent Par Avion postcards for what I did order – the stickers – and the shop owner replied back right away with a resolution and I was able to keep the postcards, so that was really nice of them. The customer service was quick, friendly and just all-around great.

Let me know what sort of new craft or art supplies you’ve picked up lately. I’m really getting into art journaling, partly because with Spring coming along, I feel a change is needed to spiff up my journal pages.
