Embrace The Face December Challenge

Here is my submission for the ‘Embrace The Face’ challenge this month. The theme is ‘White’ and I think my journal sketch with the little white roses in her hair and white dress, fits nicely. I like this little lady so much that I made her my avatar. This was completely done using graphite pencil and Pitt Pens. I swear I think I could doodle with them all day! They are so much fun. I just ordered some new ones and can’t wait till they get here…
Pop over to the challenge and take a look, there are some beautiful faces over there! A new theme starts in January.

White Gel Pen Demo

Since several people who have signed up for my Journaling Workshop have asked, here is a little demo on White Gel Pens. I went to Michael’s and bought one of every white pen they had. Using a painted background page from my journal, I tried them all and this is what I came up with.

For Fine Lines

Uniball Signo Broad, (Can be purchased from Stampin’ Up also) writes consistently smooth and gives great coverage. It also acts as a resist if painted over. Love it!

For Coloring or Wide Lines

Marvy Opaque Stix feel nice and smooth when writing over paint. The white one gives a slightly see-through look that I love. The colored ones are very opaque. They are also inexpensive. I use these pens a lot and would highly recommend them for journaling.

I hope this helps a bit with the ‘which white pen’ dilemma!
