A few weeks ago, we shared some inspiring tips to help you make the most of journaling tags. In this post, we’ll offer 10 more ways to help you think creatively in terms of journaling placement and formatting. If you love a layout you see here, don’t forget to visit the galleries and leave some love.

1. Fill the white space

2. Think narrow

3. Fade into the background

4. Play hide and seek with your text

5. Think in circles

6. Remember right justification

7. Mix and match fonts, alphas and your journaling

8. Create your own word art

9. Fill in the box

10. Think balancing thoughts

This week’s freebie comes from the new Melody of Spring kit by Jersey. In keeping with the theme of this post, there is a great space for journaling all ready!

    Thanks for the journaling inspiration! One of my goals this year is to journal more on my layouts, so this was inspirational. Hope you’re feeling better!

    LOVE the QP, thanks so much! That’s Q for Q and UTE for ute, CUTE!
    You would have to know Clyde Crashcup to appreciate that I guess 🙂

    Journaling is certainly a challenge. I’m trying to convince myself that its an essential part of a layout, so that I work it into my initial design.
