american crafts journaling stickers.. question..

I picked these up tonight on clearance at Michaels. I just opened them and they are transparent and glossy like. How do you use them? I can't think of a way that ink wouldn't smear on them. I think I am having a dumb moment. lol.

Sharpie and blow?

IDK, I would probably pick my least fave and test it out.

lol, I did actually! Everything I tried smeared except the sharpie, but I couldn't tell much because I don't have any fine tip sharpies. I guess I need to pick some up to see if that will really work or not.

Oh my gosh, those look really fun actually!

You could cut your paper to size, and journal on the paper. You could stick the paper journaling behind it, and then do a rub-on on top of the transparency to give it a layered look (a flourish, or a larger word, anything really!).

You could just use them for an accent, peeking behind a photo, with chipboard or buttons over the top of them (glue dots would work to hold that to it).

you know me, I detest my handwriting so I'd never buy anything like that. ROFL

Sharpie would be my suggestion. You could use a coupon and get a multiple pack of the fine tipped sharpies so you have different colors.

This. I would journal behind the stickers....then attach with a glue dot or something like that hidden by something like a button or paper.
