Oohhh, white out!

Sometimes a page can look... not done.... and you can't figure out what to do with it.
I got a white gel pen a few weeks ago (why are they so hard to find?) and that has really changed the look of my journal pages.

The background is done in Pearlescents, and I added another National Geographic photo. I also used the Pearlescents with my dip pen, to see how that would work, and I found it not strong enough, so I traced some of the words with my white pen.

Here the background is done in Pearlescents, the girl in acrylics, black ink and Pearlescents, and I then added journaling (in Dutch, it's almost like a secret language...) in white pen. The border was done with left over ink on my brush.


  1. very Cool, love the girly on the bottom. I know how much fun it is to play with new supplies!

  2. Thank you so much. I need to get a new white pen though, because I use it allll the time now it's nearly run out of ink.

  3. Wonderful! What type of white gel pen did you get? I have a hard time with that also!

  4. It's not a brand, just one I found at WH Smith.
