My Favorite Journaling Supplies

Here is a list of my favorite supplies I use when journaling in scriptures and scripture journals (some are affiliate links, but they are products I already use): 

JOURNALS: Any journal will work. But my personal favorite journals are the handmade coptic journals you can make yourself. I like this style of journal because it lays flat when you are writing in it. It also has thicker pages since its created with a drawing pad. I like how it has over 100 pages so it lasts a long time.

 

WIDE MARGIN SCRIPTURES: 

  • Deseret Book Wide Margin Scriptures


Deseret Book has lots of different options for their wide margin Book of Mormons. They are smaller. Some have lined margins. The inside text is exactly the same as a regular BOM. I've decided out of all the kinds you can use, these books are my personal favorite. You get great quality at a great price.

 

 

PENS: You need a good ballpoint pen that won't bleed through pages, or leave puddles of ink that will smudge and make a mess. My favorite black pens to use in my journals are:

  • Copic Multiliner Pens (size 0.1) - You can find these at Hobby Lobby or online. They are great black pens to use in your journals but even better in your scriptures. 

  • Gelly Roll Pens- I love to use these in my journals. There are many kinds. My all time favorites are their "Glaze" pens. They are awesome to use on top of acrylic paints.



     


     

    GESSO:  Used for prepping your scripture pages for wet media like paint or heavy markers. It protects the pages from the pain bleeding through. 

     

    I like to use the kind in the tube vs. the bottle. It keeps it from crusting shut and getting dried bits inside when opening. You can see a tutorial on how to prep your scripture pages with gesso here.
    HEAT GUN-
    INK PAD-
    • Make sure you are using an ink pad that is WATERPROOF so that when you add wet media after using stamps it won't smudge ink everywhere. I am currently using and loving this one: Ranger Archival Ink Pad, Jet Black
    WATERCOLOR CRAYONS- 

      WATERCOLORS:
      STICKER PAPER:

      • Clear Sticker Paper- clear is more expensive but allows you to see words underneath as long as the ink isn't too dark.
