I know that you know how to change the color of journaling. For example, you use white journaling when placing it on dark paper and black journaling when placing it on light paper.
But when’s the last time you considered clipping paper to your journaling?
There are several reasons you may want to do this.
1️⃣ To add a variegated look to your journaling. Choose a paper with large blocks of color and clip it to your journaling.
2️⃣ To add an ombre look to your journaling. Clip a paper to your journaling that contains a gradual blending of two colors. You could also clip a gradient for the same effect, but clipping a paper is faster! You will need to resize the paper so that both colors in the ombre are represented.
3️⃣ To add a striped look to your journaling. Make sure to use a paper that has stripes of equal width so that the color of each strip will align with the each line of type. You will definitely need to resize your paper on this one!
All of the ideas above will cause your journaling to become part of your page design instead of just a necessary addition of facts.
Below you’ll find a new FREE video tutorial showing you a quick and simple, yet amazingly spectacular, way to journal on striped paper. Make sure to check it out.
