My Favorite Journaling Supplies
JOURNALS: Any journal will work. But my personal favorite journals are the handmade coptic journals you can make yourself or purchase here. 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.
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.
- Microns will work too, but NOT PURPLE. I used the purple one for awhile only to find out that after a long time had passed, the colors bled through badly, but they don't at first.
- Staedtler Triplus Finalizer Markers. You can purchase them from Deseret Book or Amazon and I've even seen them in Target. These are perfect for writing inside a journal, but don't use them in the thin pages of your scriptures, they will bleed through.
GESSO: Used for prepping your scripture pages for wet media like paint or heavy markers.
