Because I get this question a lot on Instagram, here’s a list of my current favorite journaling supplies*.

First up, the main supplies I’m using with the journal I’m creating for my HERE ecourse:

  1. Journal: Travelogue watercolor book

  2. Watercolors: Travel set from 1Canoe2 that I can’t find online. Here’s something close.

  3. Pen: Le Pen permanent fine point

  4. Favorite glue stick for thick photos

  5. Tiny photos: Social Print Studio (Use code 5ZFZDWLWP9 for $5 off and I get $5, too)

Second, here are some other supplies you might have seen me using over on Instagram:

Journals: Along with the one above, I like the drawing books series from Travelogue and the Stillman and Birn softcover sketchbook. And here’s a quick link to a post with few other journals I like.

Pens: My biggest suggestion is to head to your local art store where you can try pens to see which ones you like. Here are a few of my favorites: Staedtler, Flair Pens, thin Sharpies, and Le Pen. I also use the Uni-Ball Signo white pen and metallics.

Washi tape: I like paper tape most of all because it comes up easily and tends NOT to rip the paper. I love this Etsy shop and the brand mt, which you can find here on Amazon.

Photos: I love journaling with my photos and get most of them printed at Social Print Studio, locally at Walgreens, and use Instax printers and a Canon Selphy at home.

Paints:
Watercolors: I have tried a lot of different sets, and honestly, Crayola is awesome for simple projects. I also like a big palette like these from Target or this set. But if you really want to splurge, the Sennelier half pans (that come in a variety of sets or you can order individual colors) are luxurious.
Acrylic: I love the inexpensive craft paints you can get at just about any big box art store. I like the Hand Made Modern line at Target. I also love these colors from Golden that are a splurge: Iridescent Gold, Green Gold, Quinacridone Magenta, and Prussian Blue Hue.

Brushes: I usually just get the inexpensive “all purpose” brush sets at my local art supply store. Online, I would get something like these that come in a great case or these. I also love water brushes (like these and these) and keep them with me for travel.

And here’s a post about my favorite collage journaling supplies that I use in Tell It: Collage (which I’m in the process of updating and will re-release in early fall).
