Another couple of pages. Naturally I have only photographed the pages I like. Maybe someday I'll get brave enough to post the uglies too. First I have to accept that they exist! Some of the collage elements on the Crazy Love page came from Kelly Kilmer. I took one of her on-line journaling classes and she gave the class collage pages. The other page was a result of testing various pens and inks I have in my stash to see how they felt to write with and how waterproof the ink was. I also played with an edge punch on this page. It's kind of a messy page but I like it for some reason. I have a terrible time finding pens I like for journaling. Half of the ones I try won't write over paint and glue. Most of them aren't waterproof and I always end up regretting that fact. The best pen I've found so far is my Copic marker but I don't like the chisel tip or the brush tip for most things. I bought a fine point Copic pen but it doesn't seem to work as well. Other artists swear by this pen or that but I have not had such good results. Maybe it's because I live in such a dry climate. There's nothing like an early morning blog ramble about pens huh?
