There was a request (ever since my last post on
art journaling) about writing on painted pages..
The following is a page I did with crackled textures to demonstrate
with some of the pens I have in my stash.
All of these pens are permanent but they vary in "clarity" and ease :
1) Pitt artist pens by Faber Castell.
2) Sakura pigma micron pen
3) Marvy Uchida pigmented artist pen
4) Sharpie poster paint
5) Uniball signio (I think it's Sakura)
6) Sharpie permanent marker
On such backgrounds with textures, the Sharpie poster works wonders. It simply glides through
the crackle surface, probably my favorite. I happened to have bought mine from Michael's
during my recent trip to the US as we don't have this particular range here.
I'd like to credit Julie Prichard for this idea of presenting the use of these pens in this format.
Julie runs fabulous online classes on layering paints to create backgrounds. And if you pop by her blog right now, she is having a giveaway.
The art page featured today is a combination of collage painted with acrylic paints which was inspired by
Julie's online class, Layer Love.
