Art Journal page-Cynical Me


I did this page for the art journal CJ I'm doing on UKScrappers. I can't remember the exact theme but we had to write about how we approach days and this pretty much sums it up! Yes, I'm cynical- it's what gets me through the days!

The background was sprayed with Glimmer Mist and stamped over the top. I was pleased with it- until I wrote on it! The pen stopped working so I had to go over it quite a few times to make it stand out. In the end the only pen that worked was an old white one. Time to update my pen collection!Can anyone recommend a decent white pen that doesn't blot/dry out/leave a track when it's used?


I'm linking this over at Handmade Monday-please come along and play!

  6. Lovely! I use white uni-posca pens. The biggest problem with most pens seems to be when writing on a surface that isn't fully dry (one that feels dry but hasn't hardened). Not sure if that'll help, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    Your page looks wonderful, love the colors and images.

  14. Fab journal page (you can't be a total cynic if you use pink and blue lol). Can't help with the pen, I'm afraid, as I destroy mine on a regular basis trying to write on top of paints etc.

  18. What a great page. I struggle with white pens too - they never seem to last long or work as well as I want them to, I find my Uni Posca pen works the best.
