What can I say, if you do something for 31 days in a row you develop a habit:-) I used Golden’s liquid matte medium with Caran d’ache water soluble crayons in my Moleskine journal. The pages hold up really well to this method.
My Art Journalism 101 class is in it’s 4th week and we have an amazing 105 students! Everyone’s pages are looking wonderful. Class registration is closed, but I will be offering it again in the future. I am working on a Shades of Grey class, that will be featuring Pitt Pens. I’ve had so many asking about it that I decided to take that on for my next workshop. I will keep you posted as to dates and registration etc.
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!
I am so happy to announce that my Online Art Journalism 101 Workshop is now open for registration. This will be a workshop to motivate you, share some of my favorite techniques, and get you started on the road to keeping a visual art journal. The class will be 5 weeks and starts in January. Class supply list is posted on the Creative Workshop’s site. I hope to see you there as we chase those winter blues away and cozy up by the fire to let our hair down let our muses play!
Wow! This morning I looked at my hit counter, and it is at 9,900 since I installed it! I’m feeling a little give away when it hits the 10,000 mark, so stay tuned…
