Moleskine #21

I was going to stop working in my Moleskine and move on but decided that I should try to finish it.  I started this spread with a thin wash of white acrylic paint.  I let that dry and used Caran d’Ache crayons and used a water wash to blend and smoosh them around on the pages.  I used some painted phone book pages for collage pieces.  I used black acrylic paint for the bold black lines and Higgins Black Eternal Ink with a dip pen for the thinner lines.  The Higgins ink says it is permanent but it isn’t waterproof….or maybe I didn’t let it dry well enough?  Last of all, I used my new favorite white pen (recommended by Misty Mawn), a uni-ball Signo pen.  It writes on almost everything!

    Signo white pens are one of my favorites although I use Sharpie ultra-fine white poster paint pens, too. I haven’t tried the Higgins ink….I think mine is Speedball India ink.

    I love what you wrote on these pages….so true.

    I love that you tell how you did a page and what you used–I want to try the signo pen–I have problems with the white gel pens writing over certain mediums. Where did you get yours?

      I ordered my Signo from Dick Blick. I like the black one too…they are the best I’ve tried so far.

    The yellow and blue works really well.
    Especially when they fade in together on the background.
    A job well done
