*A guest post by Carolyn Dube.
I did a good thing today. I saved the life of a pen. How? By calling upon my many many experiences with wet paint and ruined pens. Did I wait for the paint to completely dry? Don’t be silly. That would take patience. I used a pencil instead. Pencils can take a lot more abuse than my pens. The pen threatening art journal spread all started with this washi tape from Scotch. I loved the pattern so much I didn’t want to stop adding it to the page.
That washi tape led me to the paint. Even after adding color, there was lots of white space left on the page! That’s a rarity for me. Enjoy the video as I share this page from start to finish.
