I like shiny, sparkly, colorful pens! Above: Sakura’s Gelly Roll metallic pens. And below: The Glaze pen.
My satchel bag with many of my favorite pens and pencils ~ ready to go with me.
Some of the doodles below are the result of using the Souffle and Glaze pens; both made by Sakura. I love their raised, textural look and feel.
And color. Hours and hours. Since I was a small girl. Didn’t you? I still do! It has changed forms however… be it stitching, sewing, or coloring!
Glaze pens leave a shiny, raised texture and the Souffle pens leave a chalk-like, raised texture. They are very fun Easter basket gifts — for anyone — younger or older!
As I was going through my sketching & scrapbooking supplies, checking my pens to see which ones still worked properly, I practiced some designs and doodles in my big sketchbook…
This is a so relaxing for me, and great practice. Works out for some fun ideas; for envelopes, cards & quilting motifs!
I’ve always loved the simplistic style of of these adorable, tiny pink roses… an easy quilting motif, really. Nothing but an egg shape with a swirl on the top.
On to blue flowers with nothing but simple little circles that form the cone shape. I also thought that this hyacinth shape would be a fun quilting design…
I always have a fun time when I make time for a play date with my pens and sketchbook!
How about you?
