Ten Things Tuesday

White Pen
 
Today's Ten Things post is all about the magic of white ink.
Our designers illustrate all the fun there is to be had with this unique tool.
 
1. Add a Frame
 
2. Write a Sentiment
Practical Scrapper Lisa Moen used a white Signo Pen for her sentiment.
 
3. Use your Silhouette or other Electronic Device
Practical Scrapper Jessica Arrant used a white pen and her Silhouette Cameo to doodle on a border, then filled in the rest of the page with sketched on black and silver arrows for a custom background.
 
4. Add Details to Embellishments
Practical Scrapper Karen used white gel pen to highlight the eyes of a cute pair of owls she stamped onto patterned papers. She also added dots and dashes to outline plain paper flower embellishments.
 
 
5. Color an Embossing Folder
Practical Scrapper Charity used a white Marvy pen to color the convex design of her embossing folder. The result was an embossed design with highlighted accents.
 
6.Doodle
Practical Scrapper Leslii Wagner used a white gel pen to journal and doodle all over this busy layout of her little guy and his friend. Check out her blog for close ups.
 
7. Write on a Photo
 
Practical Scrapper Kelly Jean used a white Uni-ball Signo pen to write a message on her layout. She also traced acrylic stamps with white and colored them in.
 
8. Add Faux Stitching
Practical Scrapper Kristy MacKeen loves to use her white pen to add faux stitches on layouts.
 
9. Add Bubbles

Practical Scrapper Kerri used a white pen to add details to the scallops and bubbles to the fish.
 
10. Accent Cork
Practical Scrapper Wendy Coffman used a white gel pen to add dotty details to cork accents, turning the leftover letter "o" centers into sweet bumblebees and plain cork sticker letters into a red and white dotted title. See the full page and a quick bee tutorial on her blog.
 
We'd love to see your favorite use of this tool.
Post a photo to our facebook page so we can all enjoy your handy work.
 
Scrap on!
