Using Your Words

The amount of journaling that I include onto my art journal pages varies. Sometimes it takes lots and lots of writing to express what I’m feeling, but more often than not, a word or two will do the trick.

Usually I’ll flip through old books that I keep specifically for this purpose, looking for just the right words to cut out. Thing is, that can take a lot of time and that’s time I could be spending making pretty things, so I’m forever on the lookout for new text stickers to use in my paper crafting projects.

Imagine my delight when I walked into The Making Place Escondido and came across these beauties! I don’t know if they’re NEW new, but they’re sure new to me and I scooped them up as fast as I could.

These are “Tiny Text” by Cosmo Cricket and I adore them. I like the font and how the letters are just a bit askew and the words and sentiments are fun and fresh.

I would definitely encourage you to shop around for a good price though. They’re listed on Amazon priced anywhere from $5 – $10 each! That’s just crazy talk right there, if you ask me. I paid $1.69. 2014-11-01 08.10.30

These are “Petite Diction” by Authentique. Different in style than Tiny Text, but I love them just the same!  Each sheet has a theme; shown here are “Adventure”, “Harmony” and “Favorite”. The words and sentiments on each sheet correlate to the theme, which makes it easy when I’m trying to convey a particular feeling or positive affirmation.

Again I encourage you to shop around. Amazon is selling them for just under $5. I paid $1.39.
