Ooer - better get wriggle on! There's not much of WOYWW left!
Welcome to WOYWW hosted by the lovely Julia (go here ~~~> TA-DAHHHH! to see what its all about)(Alfie). It's the crafty equivalent of twitching the blinds and nosing at the neighbours, or walking past people's houses when its dark outside and the lights are on inside and they've not closed the curtains yet. Oh don't look at me like that - you know you've done it too!
The journal pages are the second attempt at the project of my intention. The first attempt was truly awful and ended up in the bin. The background was fine and I was actually happy with it. But then I introduced a brand new black Sharpie pen to the Pearls misted gesso page to journal the song lyrics - and said Sharpie basically, recoiled in my hand, stuck two fingers up at my page and said that it didn't want to play so there. I think I was either sold a dud or the background had something on it that the pen didn't like and it just refused to bliddy work. It skated over the page and refused to leave a defined mark. I thought I'd try my (also BRAND BLINKING NEW) Inkssentials white pen to journal the chorus on the second page which just had acrylic on it. And that refused to work also. **insert very sad faced smiley here along with a very angry faced smiley with a red face, blowing steam out of its ears and possibly animated and jumping up and down on two BRAND NEW pens** It's ok, thought I, I can paint the lyrics on to the page in white acrylic.
Oh har -de-bloody-har.
I should realise my limitations and renowned caggy handedness before I embark on such delicate operations.
T'was at this point that, fueled by raging PMT and lack of chocolate, said pages were ripped out, jumped on, driven over, set fire to, buried in the garden, dug up, jumped on again, and put in the bin. I may have stuck my tongue out at them too.
So I did em again. I may have to sneak up on them and take them by surprise to get the journalling done.
Any pointers on pens, both black and white, that will write on anything would be mahoosively appreciated.
I thank you.
