Supply Obsession

There are a few essentials that I cannot live without:  scissors, patterned paper, a good alphabet.  Maybe the simpliest, yet most powerful supply...my pen! 

It helps me to journal, which is a must do on every page.  I need a sturdy pen, fine point...Zig Writer is my man!  It helps me to add small details like dots to boring letters.  It also helps with adding frames of all sorts.

I relied heavily on my pen for this layout:

Good, old, reliable Kraft can be jazzed up with a pen!  I used it to add some pizzaz here and to make all the circles pop!

I started with the journaling spots and some smaller circles I cut from polka-dotted paper.  Once I had it laid out, but not glued, I decided to doodle the circles.  My technique?  I used the Happy circle to make the larger circles for the green #2 one.  I used the orange #3 to make the circle for the Happy.  And so on... In essence, I just made use of the supplies in front of me!

The rectangular shape here is not pen.  I used the Jillibean Soup stamp in the August Scrapbook Nook kit! This kit is so fun...beautiful bright oranges!  I did use my pen to make the lines and journal!

Speaking of journaling, be sure to sign up for Leah's journaling class over at the Nook.  She is such a talented writer and will have so much to share.  We are having a Virtual Crop on August 19th and 20th so be sure to come and play!

Bring your pen!  I know I will have mine!
