Quick Tip—Journaling Lines
by Jen White

As I get older, journaling on my scrapbook pages becomes more and more of a priority. I want my photos to be accompanied by the personal touch of my “voice.”

One way to vary journaling—even if it is just the facts—is by grabbing some journaling lines from a random journal tag and adding them to your page.


This is a note element from Live, Love by Kitty Designs. Here was my thought process:

  • Using the Magic Wand tool, extract the white journaling lines.
  • Turn the lines black—just to make them easier to work with.
  • Using the Elliptical Marquee tool, remove the outer circle.


After adding the journaling lines to my page, I adjusted them a bit further:

  • Turn the lines a matchy, matchy color.
  • Lower the opacity of the lines to blend them into the background.
  • Adjust the Leading of the journaling to match the line height.
  • Using the Eraser tool, remove parts of the lines.

Remember: You shouldn’t feel obligated to fill every inch of the lines. Less can sometimes be more.
