anyway...my journal bag consists of a slew of my favorite sharpie poster paint pens (I sell thes by the way www.teeshamoore.com), a white gel pen, a couple of superfine pitt pens in black, a small collection of colored pencils, all the neon gel pens, a few copic markers, a pencil, eraser, 3 panpastels (black, brown, red) and one tombo double sided adhesive roller. I do all the collage work at home. The one exception was when I went to Tokyo and relied on finding stuff there to journal with. But I still painted my pages before I left home.
Speaking of collage...I keep a giant pile on my desk...it is not sorted and everything goes into it including color copies of past journal pages that I like to deconstruct. For instance...the pieces shown below have been in the pile for a couple years as they never seemed to work on my color backgrounds...when the white pages came along, they were perfect. It is all the odd scraps and bits that I seem to use the most...the part that is left when you cut the main image out.
When we were heading to portland last weekend, I bound up my journal and quickly slapped some collage on 8 of the pages... in fact...I'll scan in some pages that are ready for taking on the road.These are bits and pieces of collage that I will be reworking with pens, pencils, chalks and maybe even more collage. I think these pages worked better because I was in a hurry and not giving too much thought to what went down...I just knew I wanted something on the page before I left.
So...all my pens are in a zippered bag...I'll take a photo of my bag soon but right now I can't find my camera (aaargh!). and that goes into a backpack along with my journal, my ipod, some headphones, and extra black and white sharpie poster paint extra fine pens (just to make sure I always have them on me). Hope that helps you journal more.
