One More Thing...

I made an ATC for the Altered Designs Yahoo Group that I belong to for the Handwritten ATC Mingle....and this was just so timely as I have found and totally fallen in love with Liquitex Inks.

So I made another one....

These inks have to be my absolute favorite.....no more worries of finding the right pen to write over my acrylic paints and such.....I just love them.
I found them last weekend at The Art of the Carolina's Show put on by Jerrys Artarama. What a great show. Lots of artist teaching workshops and vendors....you can find all kinds of art supplies for way cheap.
Michele Theberege was there demonstrating for Liquitex..... She showed me what I could do with them, and pointed me in the right direction for the the proper writing instrument....Dip Pens or Nib Pens...I think they are also called Lettering Pens...and well....I bought every color of the inks they had, and all the different sized nibs I could find :) I'll have to post more about my weekend there later....because it ROCKED!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Nice cards! I missed those pens. Thank goodness! I spent too much anyway. Do you know if they have metallic colors? I could use something that will write on some difficult surfaces.

I love these - both of them bring an immediate smile! Thanks too for the advice about the pens. Being left handed, I always have 'smearing' problems. I'll have to try these!
