I'm going through a bit of a pen obsession at the moment. Ahh there is nothing like a good healthy pen obsession don't you think? I'm on the look out for some coloured ink ballpoint pens.
I've spotted some likely candidates out and about.
Oooo pretty colours...
I also spotted, and naughtily acquired, some half price Amy Tangerine Slick writers in some yum colours - thanks TKMaxx! But I still NEED some coloured ballpoints of course.
I don't know why but I'm on a really bright coloured pen thing at the moment, Orange and lime with a bit of bright pink thrown in for good measure just seems to be ringing my bell. I love the fact that the Amy Tangerine pens work on glossy surfaces but the green wasn't lime, unfortunately, still they are going to be perfect for some journalling I have planned.
Meanwhile in my hunt for coloured ink ballpoints I reached for my Staedler Triplus Fineliner pens. Again not ball points but these are fabulous pens.
These pens are great because they are lovely to write and sketch with, the colours are yum and they don't show through your sketchbook papers - which the Amy Tangerines ones do by the way. Also for a coloured pen they are really reasonably priced. I think I got mine from CASS Art years ago in a sale - which makes them extra special!
So why am I going pen crazy? Well, apart from a bit of a sketching obsession, I'm also going through a lettering obsession at the moment:
My pictures today were all taken with a Canon IXUS220 HS, if you read my last blog post (it was a week ago - yikes!) you will know that I'm also going through a camera obsession. I thought I would trying using my mobile phone and digital cameras on my blog more to compare with my dSLR. Thanks for all your comments about the cameras you use. It is fascinating to see what we all use.
Well, I've updated you on my latest obsessions, would love to hear if you have any pen obsessions going on at the moment, or any obsessions at all for that matter!
