I love patterned paper, but it can sometimes be hard to use. I tend to gravitate to the solids in a kit, but still love those patterns.
One of the problems I face when using patterned paper is that it is hard to journal on. Even a slightly patterned paper can be distracting and make my journaling lose its focus.
I think I have found a way to have the best of both worlds — use that pretty patterned paper, but still have journaling that is sharp and readable.

P.S. I have to explain why my husband is wearing underwear on his head. We have a card game that we love to play called “The Great Dalmuti.” The winner of each round gets to be the “Great Dalmuti.” In our house that also means they get to sit in the nicest chair, wear a crown and have the Peon (or scum) serve them. The Peon is the person that lost the round. In our version the Peon has to sit on the floor and wear (clean, brand new) men’s underwear on their head. Believe me, you don’t want to lose at this game. This day, on her birthday, my daughter was on a winning streak and my husband, who was losing, got to do a lot of service.
