These are a few of my favorite fonts...

Well it is time I put together a list of my favorite fonts for journaling!  These are the fonts that are thinner lined, so they won't look like they have that double lined look.  Click on the fonts to be taken to the site that you can download these at.  Keep in mind, these are double lined fonts, so the larger you make them, the more you will be able to tell.

Now some of those above come from Kevin and Amanda fonts.  I love love love her fonts!  There are a bunch here that are perfect for journaling.... Fonts for Peas
Kay at Clever Someday also has a list she put together of some of her favorite fonts as well. Scroll down to find the gel pen fonts which are best for journaling here... Clever Someday

Of course there are many, many more!! These are just what I have that I know have worked for me so far! 
So here is a page I did with the first font on my list, Fire Fly Castle.  I used the font to journal around the page then used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with the white Signo Uni ball gel pen. Notice how when I made the font bigger on the bottom, you can see the double lines.  I simply grabbed my white gel pen and colored in the  middle, as you can see on the letters "HAP"  in the picture below.  It didn't take long at all to finish this!
The Studio file for this page is available for download here... happy birthday  Here is a close up of the font in a smaller size, where you can't tell that it is double lined because of how close the lines are together.
My journaling was done on one of the journaling boxes I made with the Chomas Creations holders awhile back with the red glitter Chomas Creations gel pen.  I trimmed the gift off the end so it would fit.  You can find the dashed line file here... journaling box
Here is the finished page.  These are some old Basic Grey papers, and stickers I had so I used a bunch of scraps on this!  Nice to use up some of that stash!

Amy, I had a number of these, but some were new to me and always so welcome! I love using your gel pen holder to write, so having good fonts to use with them is essential! Love how you used the white Signo around your birthday page! It looks wonderful!
