Art Journal Tutorial, Step Five

For the journaling in Step Five, I used my ZIG Memory System calligraphy pen in Chocolate. I didn’t have the suggested Sharpie pen. Actually, I had one in white, and it didn’t really want to write on my page! I suspect the Lumiere paints again. Maybe if I’d let the page dry overnight before I started journaling, the ink would have reacted better with the page. I don’t know. As it is, I can read it, and that’s the important thing.

All in all, I’m pleased with the final result.

Cindy! It's a great set of pages!! I know what you mean about the pen problems...that happens to me all the time too...since I like the sharpie pens, it limits me to either black or white..I am on the perpetual hunt tfor good colored pens.

Thank you so much for playing along!!

Hi Cindy! Your journal page turned out awesome!!! I wonder if a spray of workable fixative, between layers, would've helped with the pen and stamping?
