WOYWW


This was my craft table on Monday when I finally got crafting again after  what seemed a very long break but was in fact only three weeks. It's looking pretty tidy as I only made one layout and then packed everything away again.


I don't have many pens that write on photos or are safe for scrapbook pages. I have a black Zig pen and this set of Vellum markers. The thing is, I don't like the colours of these very much. They're too bright and garish. The brown marker is the only one that I take out of the packet on a regular basis. Can anyone recommend anything they use and wouldn't like to be without? 
If you're wondering what WOYWW is all about, hop over to Duchess Julia's blog and join in the fun. She has a huge following of nosey people who'd just love to poke around your craft desk.

  2. Ooh Duchess! Hmm, I think not! I see you've got that lovely stamp out again. I use the vellum pens occasionally - on the back of the vellum, dulls 'em down a bit. Otherwsie like you, I use Sig and I have recently started an affair with Signo pens in white black and any colour I can find!

  11. http://www.my-history.co.uk/acatalog/Archive_Quality_Papers.html sorry can't figure out how to make the link work but my friend bought some of these pens as they are acid free and she loves them, you could try other geneology sites as well.
    Hope this helps and thanks for the nosey.

  13. I can't live without my bone folder. I went on a quest for the perfect bone folder and it's one of the few things that I won't let anyone else use.

    As for pens, I couldn't live without Pitt pens from Faber Castell. I love the tips and the fact that the ink is waterproof. I don't know if they're suitable for photos, but I do love them.

  15. I could not live without my trimmer ...I have two but its the original one I NEED to have .... other than that I just need to have the basic tools. As for pens ...not sure but Zig seems to be the best for me. You are so tidy and organized xx

  18. as an artist, i'm always sketching with drawing pens...Faber Castell makes a lovely set of brown markers...four to a pack and they come in different thicknesses! from thin to thick! to brush stroke....
    anyways...i can't live without the black set and the brown...you can buy them at Michael's craft store in the art supply section....
