Silver pen review

20 Nov

Guest Blog Post by Design Team member Pat Mathes

Comments in italics from Deb


Greetings on this cold wintery day!


I love pens!  Anyone who knows me knows that I am always buying a new pen to try.  In the Zentangle® world (Pat is a CZT – Certified Zentangle Teacher), we normally use Micron Pigma pens.  You notice I say “normally”.  I actually use whatever suits my fancy that day.  Of course, that is when I am creating Zentangle Inspired Art.  I still use Microns with Zentangle tiles.  But I digress….


Deb gave me six silver pens to review for you.  Oh wow did that make me happy!  So I played and played and thought I had a favorite, then I would pick up another and have a new favorite.  So I decided all were good for different purposes.  After I played with them, I did go on line to read any other details on the pens (you will see some of that in the descriptions of the pens).  I also wanted to see if there were reviews on the pens, and found everything was pretty comparable to my findings. (all of these pens come in different colors too)




The first pen is the Y&C gel Xtreme 0.7 from Yasutomo .  These pens feature high quality, water based, acid free and non-toxic pigment gel ink.  It is a 0.7 millimeter tipped pen, so a nice fine line. It would be great for detail work as it flows very fine.  It has a shimmery metallic effect.  I think it works well on both the white and black paper.  It would be great for journaling, as it is easy to read the writing.


Next up is the Uniball gel impact silver 1.0 mm.  It flows very smooth.  It has a bold 1.0 mm tip and a contemporary barrel design with a rubber grip.  There is a visible ink supply and it is permanent ink.  I really like the Uniball pen, but I confess a lot of times I do Zentangle drawings with a Uniball black fine pen. Uniball pens are so smooth on the paper.  My favorite white pen is a Uniball Signo.  This silver Uniball really stands out on the black paper, as well as the white, and maintains a shimmery metallic sheen.  Again, it would be great for journaling because of the ease of writing.

Then we have the Faber Castell Metallic Pitt artist pen.  It has a broad tip – not a nib or gell roller tip, more like a micron graphic 1 or Sharpie pen.  It is an India ink base.  It has a very smooth style.  I like Pitt pens.  I like the way they write.  The only drawback for me with this one is that it dries more of a flat grayish silver.  It doesn’t have a sheen.  When I use a silver or gold pen, I like the sheen.  It is one that actually looks better on the white paper rather than the black.  It would work in journals – just a flatter silver color.


The Derwent Graphik line painter is an opaque pigment ink with a 0.5 mm  Japanese nib.  It is a very fine line and would do great detail work.   Like the Pitt Artist Pen, the Graphik line painter shows more of a flat silver gray on paper and looks better on white paper.  Because of the fine linework, it would be good in journaling.  I did see some reviews for this line painter of issues with blobbing ink or bubbling ink.  It does have a see through cartridge, and I do see bubbles in the cartridge.  But I had no issues.


The Molotow One4All acrylic paint pen has a 2.0 round tip.  It flows very smoothly.  It is refillable and you can also replace tips.  I don’t think it would be too difficult. The tip screws onto the cartridge.  I actually had to go on line to read about this one – there wasn’t a whole lot of information on the pen and it was such tiny print, it was hard to read.  It got good reviews – I like the effect – it would make some great framing borders or whimsical lettering on a journal page.


Last, but not least, is the Sakura Pen-Touch 2.0 mm.  This is a permanent paint marker with opaque color.  It is archival ink and goes on really smooth.  It does cover an area very quickly and doesn’t streak.  Like the Molotow, it would be great in doing journal work and lettering projects.



I tried all of these pens on a white mixed media 90 lb. journal page and on an Artagain black 100 lb. page.  None of the pens bled through the paper.  They all show very nicely on the black paper – on the white they are not as dramatic.  I switched to a 60# drawing pad and the Molotow and PenTouch came real close to bleeding through.


All of them dry pretty quickly which was a surprise, especially with the Molotow and Sakura, and they are all waterproof.  About 20 minutes after I did the pages I took a water brush to the pages and none of the inks smeared at all.   With a lot of pigment and India ink type pens, you need to allow some setting time or they will smear a bit.  For instance, a Micron pigment pen almost needs to set for 24 hours or use a heat drying method to be able to use water over it.


I have started doing some journal work and can see potential in all six of the pens to use in journaling.  I could use any of them in Zentangle Inspired Art.  I actually took the Uniball and applied it over an alcohol ink piece I did and liked that too.  Great pens, and all are available at Blue Twig Studio.  Check them out.

Thanks Pat for an awesome review. I love pens and markers too and am always on the lookout for new and wonderful pens. Of course, we have lots of pens in the shop. I apologize if the full selection isn’t available on the website, but you can always ask me about products and I can send you an invoice for them.

Weeks 39, 40, 41 of 365 days of Art

15 Nov

As you know, I have lost 2 weeks worth of postcards along with my camera. I have searched high and low for them and cannot find them anywhere. Sigh. So I bought a new camera and I am skipping 2 weeks worth of postcards and sharing the next 3 weeks (39, 40, 41). When and if I ever find those missing 2 weeks, I will post them as well.

I feel like I wasted a lot of time and energy trying to find the missing postcards and camera, so now it is time to just move on.

So, here are 3 weeks worth of postcards to try to catch you up. Enjoy!

Tim Holtz holiday goodies

8 Nov

Guest Blog Post by Design Team Member Terri Ayers

Comments in italics by Deb

What a treat to get some Tim Holtz holiday goodies (everybody seems to like the Tim Holtz holiday items as they have come into the shop and are already mostly all gone!)  to experiment with for the first month of being on the design team.  I spent quite a few days trying to decide what to do with the holiday Yuletide embellishments.  I received Alpha Parts  – Frozen, a Christmas stencil (one can never have too many stencils), Festive Ephemera , and boxwood twine.  An idea to make a burlap tree and decorate it with the supplied items came to mind.  I did follow through with that idea, and we will be offering a class Dec 4 for that (see link at end of post).  I will definitely be making some Christmas cards, but for fun I thought I would try a tag.  Tags are a great way to try out a new technique and the tag can be placed in an envelope and used as a card, added to a package as lovely gift tag, placed in a holiday centerpiece or floral arrangement or many other creative uses.


I will give my personal thoughts on the various items I received.  I loved the stencil – I know I can use it for many other occasions in addition to Christmas.  Distress sprays, inks and paints, modeling/texture paste, acrylic paints, Gelatos and various other media can be used with the stencils to impart their image onto paper, fabric, burlap, canvas, glass, wood and many other surfaces.  The Boxwood Twine is flexible and can be used to decorate a card, make a wreath or decorate a small tree.  I really liked it and could also use this for other holidays.  The  Ephemera pack contained many vintage images on cardstock.  These are so much fun!  They can be layered into collages, used in cards and scrapbooks and many other applications.


Lastly, the Alpha Parts clear embellishments were in my stash of goodies.  They are a hard clear plastic and can be colored with alcohol inks or markers or covered with glue and glitter (the photo shows where Terri had started inking it).  The Frozen set is comprised of snowflakes and icicles.  Personally, I did not find these to be my favorite.  They were a little difficult to cut out and they are only lightly adhesive-backed. (good information to know)




Here is how I made this sample holiday tag.  I used the Tim Holtz distress paints in rusty hinge, antiqued bronze, and wild honey.  I applied the paints with their dauber directly onto a tag in random spots and rubbed in with my fingers.

GetAttachment (4)

Initially I used distress ink to stencil in Peace and Joy.  I later went over the words with Versamark stamping the pad directly onto the stencil and used gold embossing powder. I was much happier with the gold!

GetAttachment (5)

I made a wreath with the twine and later found some red berries to wrap into it.

GetAttachment (6)

I selected a few pieces of Ephemera and secured them to the tag with matte medium.  I stamped sheet music onto the top with Archival Ink and then tied the wreath onto the tag with some gold ribbon.  I added a few other embellishments and a couple of metal brads. I outlined around the Ephemera with a black Faber Castell Pitt pen to give a little depth to the overall look and then finished the edges of the tag with a little sponging of Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Thank you deb and Blue Twig Studio for all of the supplies used in this tag. (you can find these products and more at Blue Twig Studio)


Thanks Terri for a fabulous review of products. And the tag is really cute. I hardly ever make tags myself, but have seen so many created that are absolutely beautiful. You are right, they are a great way to experiment and play with products and techniques before moving on to your final project.

Word of the Year

2 Nov

The 2015 year is winding down now. Soon 2016 will be here with all it’s freshness and newness. New beginnings and new ideas and a New Word of the Year.

by Deb Prewitt

by Deb Prewitt

So I wanted to revisit my 2015 Word of the Year and review how it showed up in my life. My word was CONNECT. I wanted to spend the year working on connections. With my family and friends, with my customers, with my business, with my self.

I think I did a pretty good job of connecting with my customers and with the shop. I did some reflection and connection with my own self and my art. I think my family and friends might have gotten the short end of the stick, because I don’t think I did such a good job of connecting more with them.

I even did my 365 Days of Art Challenge as postcards so I could send them out into the world and connect with people that way. While I have done a great job doing a postcard every day, I haven’t mailed off as many of them as I intended to. Perhaps I can still work on that part of the challenge a bit more over the next couple months.

Sometimes the words we choose don’t play out exactly like we planned. The words tend to go in directions we often don’t anticipate. Sometimes words have more than one meaning that we didn’t think about.   Nonetheless the Word of the Year is a powerful tool that we can use to improve our life, or at the very least understand it better, and I always enjoy the process.

I like to start thinking about the Word of the Year for the upcoming year before the New Year gets here. I usually start by making a list of words that appeal to me, and spend some time thinking about them, and then over the next few weeks I’ll pay close attention to how those particular words show up in my life and which ones really start to resonate.  Of course, we can’t always know how it is going to play out and that is the beauty of it.

I do know that the word will find it’s way into my life and show up in unexpected ways. Choosing a Word of the Year is setting an intention for the upcoming year. It is powerful. Select wisely.

I’ll let you know in a few weeks what word I have chosen. I hope you will join me on this venture and share your Word of the Year with me.

365 days of Art

30 Oct

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted my postcards of the 365 days of art challenge in quite a while.

It seems that I bundled up a couple weeks of postcards to photograph and then share with you. However, I can’t seem to find them now. So I am missing a couple weeks of postcards. I don’t want to do the ones I have currently because then I will have missed those other weeks.

I know they are here somewhere. No doubt, somewhere I thought would make perfect sense to put them until I was ready to do the blog post. My days off will be spent searching high and low for them. They can’t have disappeared. They are probably right in plain sight under my nose.  :)

Hopefully they will be found by next week. I know I did them. You can check my Instagram for them. I just can’t find the actual postcards right now to photograph them for the blog.

These things happen.  Probably more often than we care to admit.

Book Club – Art Before Breakfast

25 Oct

Another month and another book! For October we read “Art Before Breakfast” by Danny Gregory.

Art Before Breakfast

Art Before Breakfast

This book is fun and quick to read. Danny Gregory is one of those people who seems like one of us. He gives the impression that he struggles with the same artistic and creative issues that the rest of us do. He has just chosen to embrace those issues and face them head on. And now he is telling us how he did it. There are lots of pictures and samples of his daily/regular art practices. He makes it look easy and simple – mostly because it is!!!!

This book talks about how you can just start doing regular, daily art/drawing/sketching/painting. The idea of the “Art Before Breakfast” title, is that we should take a few minutes every morning and just draw our breakfast. Whatever that might be, just sketch it or paint it every morning. Doing this daily bit of art will eventually improve your skills, plus it is just fun!

But he also talks about just sketching whatever you might be looking at, no matter where you are at. If you are at the airport, just draw what you see. If you are watching TV, just draw what is in front of you. If you are on vacation, draw everything you see. Draw cars. Draw people. Draw food. Draw the money in your wallet. Draw your groceries. Draw your art supplies. Draw everything!!!!!!

He talks about art with a small “a” instead of art with a capital “A”. We are not making art for museums or for galleries or for any grandiose purpose. We are making art for us – because we need to do it – because we want to do it – because we deserve it. It is OK to make art just for ourselves.

Everyone is creative. Everyone can make “art”. You just have to decide to do it.

Danny Gregory offers up lots of fun exercises designed to ease you into doing something creative or artistic every single day (like drawing your breakfast every day).  What do you do to fuel your creativity every day?


Our book club selection for next month is “Lust for Life” by Irving Stone – a biographical novel about Vincent Van Gogh.

Gelatos Tutorial

23 Oct

Guest Blog Post from Design Team Member Pat Mathes

Comments in italics by Deb


I am so excited to be a part of the Design Team at Blue Twig Studio.  That means I get to play with “STUFF”.



My first bag of goodies had a set of gelatos (Manhattan set) – Gold Champagne, Silver Ice, Iced Rose, Metallic Icing, a dot dauber and stippler brush.  My only experience before this with gelatos (we have lots of gelatos available in many colors at Blue Twig Studio – Deb) was to use them on stencils with a stencil brush.    So I had to do some research, and some playing and experimenting.


One of the other items in the bag was an Artist Pad.   This is a pad perfect for Artist Soft Pastels and Oil Pastels.  The awesome thing about this pad is that there is a sheet of tissue separating the pages so the pastels don’t smear.  It is a nice weight of paper.  I decided to try it using gelatos with a stencil brush.  It performed well – no buckling, even with the baby wipes – and kept its stability.




I also used this Artist Pad with pastel pencils on a different piece and it is a great paper!  I am able to keep the drawing in the pad until I am ready for it and it won’t smear.


Back to the gelatos.  There are numerous ways you can use gelatos – (1) directly on paper with stencils, (2) a reverse stencil where you put the gelato on the paper and use a baby wipe with the stencil to remove the gelato (the bottom left one above), (3) smear some on your craft mat, and using a water brush, mix it to add as paint [you can also water it down to a consistency to put in a mini mister and use as a spray], (4) put it directly on paper or fabric or canvas, and blend either with water or baby wipes, (5) do a smear of gelatos and blend along the top of a journal page, mist it and let it drip down the page creating a great background for a journal page.  These are just a few – it is really a versatile tool.


The first thing I did was blend the gold, silver and rose on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then used the poinsettia stencil and did a reverse stencil , removing the gelato with a baby wipe, and then painted with a red gelato (#3 above)  to give some color back to the poinsettias.  Nice overall effect.  The second sheet was basically blending the rose, silver and gold gelatos on black artgain paper, and doing a total reverse stencil.  Made a beautiful background piece. (I like the black paper)



I decided to do a mixed media Christmas canvas with the items given.  Besides the gelatos, I had a length of green cord, a package of Tim Holtz wreath adornments, and a poinsettia stencil.  So I got out a canvas – 6” square and 1 ½” deep.  I started with the gold, silver and rose gelatos and blended across the canvas.  I spritzed with water and used a glove to finger blend.  (I don’t usually like using daubers, I would rather use my fingers. I have more control and I can give it some dimension).


Then I did a reverse stencil, using a baby wipe to remove the gelato along the left side.  I then used a red to add some color back in, but not much.  So I had my background set.  I then decided  to make two poinsettias out of scrapbook Christmas paper.  I don’t use a die cutter, so found a picture of the die set to make the poinsettias and made a medium and small poinsettia – 4 layers of petals.  I trimmed with gold metallic gelly roll. When I placed it on the canvas – it needed something, so I had some red feathers and made a background embellishment with them, and then attached the poinsettias using a brad which I dipped in pink glitter.  I drilled a hole through the canvas to put the brad through so they didn’t need glued and could have a bit of mobility and looseness.  I printed a Happy Holiday greeting on tissue paper, and  used matte medium to place on the canvas.  I then highlighted the lettering with a red metallic ink pen.   I ran a walnut distress ink pad around the edge of the collaged piece to give it some character.  Once it dried, I used the Metallic Icing gelato and rubbed it over the collage, blending it with a spritz of water.



I took one of the Tim Holtz wreaths and colored it using green and red alcohol inks to give it some character.  I attached the green cord, tied on the wreath and added some small silver jingle bells for more “bling”.

Here is the finished piece.  As you can see in the second picture, I also did the same technique on the sides as I did on the front of the panel.


Thanks for a great tutorial Pat. It is fun to see how other people use the same products. I love how you added some feathers to the flowers.

Most of these products are available at Blue Twig Studio. ~Deb

Golden High Flow Acrylics review

20 Oct

Guest Blog Post by Design Team member Venisa Gallegos

Comments in italics by Deb 

So, this month, Deb gave me some Golden High Flow Acrylic paints to play with.  Included were the colors red and green and an iridescent silver. My first thought was, this will be an easy assignment and then reality set in.  What do I do with these High Flow paints? I decided to google how to use these paints and found that they have an ink-like consistency that can be used in painting, drawing, staining, glazing, inking, hand-lettering, spraying, and more. You can use them in an airbrush, dip pen or refillable marker (I loved using them in the markers).  What really caught my eye was that they come in Fluorescent colors.  Woo Hoo!  So, three colors was just not enough to play with so I went back and bought Fluorescent Yellow, Fluorescent Green and Pthalo Green (Blue Shade).  Armed with knowledge and supplies I set about my task.  (gotta love the florescent colors!)

  1. Application with Lutradur

But first I thought, why can’t I just use my regular Golden acrylics with water?  Won’t those be the same?  As it turns out, no they won’t.  Regular Golden Acrylics mixed with water get diluted.  So, that’s the big selling point with the High Flow Acrylics.  They give you concentrated color (which is extremely fluid).   I love working with Lutradur which is a non-woven, polyester fabric.  It’s basically a cross between paper and fabric.  So, I first sprayed the Lutradur with water and then started to splash the High Flow Acrylic paints onto a sheet of Lutradur.  I was immediately able to mix the colors around like finger paints to get an intense background of colors.  I was also able to easily drip and roll the paint around on the Lutradur.  The High Flow Acrylic did indeed brighten up certain areas on my sheet.  Once I had a good background I let the paint dry and once dry I stenciled on an image of a fern leaf (you know I have lots of stencils).  Since the Lutradur is polyester I used my wood burning tool with a sharp point and burned out the stenciled image.  Next, I bonded together several strips of Textiva (or Angelina film) and then put some shimmery Angelina fiber between the sheets.  I placed this between my cut out image and another piece of Lutradur that I colored.  The result is shown below.  I love how the intense colors on the Lutradur help highlight the fern leaf.




  1. Application with Canvas

For another application of the paints I took a sheet of canvas paper and sprayed it with water before again adding the High Flow Acrylic paints.  To see how the color compared with regular watered down acrylics I used some of my regular Golden paints to lay down a layer of blue.  Then, using the High Flow Acrylics I brightened up different areas of the canvas sheet.  I wanted to create highlighted colors that resembled water.  My thoughts on how to finish it was that once dry, I will be able to go back in and stitch around the more intense color areas and see what I get. OK, so I tried to sew through this and broke the needle.  Oh well.  But I still love how the Golden High Flow Acrylics gave me intense areas of color. (I’m sure you will find some use for this beautiful piece!)




  1. Application with Brusho Water Colors

Since the paints flowed like water I decided to use them with my set of Brusho Crystal Inks.  These are basically water colors.   I took some vellum paper and sprayed it with water and then added the Brusho Water Colors.  Next I dripped on some of the Iridescent Silver paint on the paper.  I really liked how the paint mixed with the water color and gave everything a shimmery look.





So, I found that what I liked best about the paints was that they produced intense colors and I could play with them like water colors.  Also, since they are acrylic, the paint can be painted over and not bleed or move around.  I’d definitely recommend trying some and seeing what you can do with them.  Now I have to go back and get some more of those magnificent fluorescent colors.


Thanks Venisa for a fun tutorial and review of products. Blue Twig Studio does carry the Golden High Flow Acrylics and the Brusho Crystals – however they are not currently listed on the website, so if you are interested let me know. The Lutradur and the Angelina are listed on the website. Or you can always stop by the shop to see what is available. ~Deb

The War of Art – Book Club

4 Oct

We recently read “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield for our book club. I know we have read this book before, but it is one of those books that I think you need to re-read every now and then (at least I do!).

The War of Art

The War of Art

The first part of the book is all about Resistance to making your art (whatever form your art is) and the many forms Resistance can take.

Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.

The second part of the book is about combating that Resistance.

Aspiring artists defeated by Resistance share one trait. They all think like amateurs. They have not yet turned pro.

The third part of the book is beyond resistance – about the higher power of our Art.

The instinct that pulls us toward art is the impulse to evolve, to learn, to heighten and elevate our consciousness.

I think this is a great book. It is an easy read if you want to just get through it. However, I think it is better utilized as a slow read. Read just a few pages at a time and really think about those things and ponder them and figure out how the information fits into your own life. My book is full of highlighted sections and underlined parts and little notes in the margins.

At Book Club we focused a lot of our discussion on our own commitment to our art (whatever form that takes) and how much time we really devoted to what we create. We found that we do tend to treat our Art more like a hobby than we should. (There is a whole section in the book about the differences between being an amateur and being a pro.) We tend to squeeze in the time for our Art rather than making it a priority. I suspect most of us do this.

We also discussed how many of the items of Resistance we have fallen prey to. Yeah – that was pretty much ALL of them. :)

We also had some discussion about joining groups or classes or clubs. Pressfield identifies this trend as being a form of resistance. Perhaps it is – for some people. However, we felt that as women (our Book Club group is all women) we respond and flourish more when involved with other like-minded people. That it might be a difference between men and women, whereas women truly need that connection and interaction with others to do our best work, and perhaps men don’t need it as much. What do you think? Was that us just making excuses for using this particular act of Resistance or is there some validity to it?

If you are a creative person (and everyone is!), then you should read this book.


For October the Book Club selection is “Art Before Breakfast” by Danny Gregory.

For November the Book Club selection is “Lust for Life” by Irving Stone.

Introducing my new Design Team

29 Sep

I’m excited to introduce my new Design Team to you. It’s kind of fun to have a Design Team (for me and them). They get to play with a variety of products, using them in different ways, experimenting and playing. Then they get to share what they learn with you! So much Fun!

All 3 of these women come from different backgrounds and different artistic and creative pursuits. I know that the diversity of their talents will help you learn more about various products and how to use them. I will let them introduce themselves so you can get to know them better.


Pat Mathes

Pat Mathes

Hi, my name is Pat Mathes and I live in Broomfield, Colorado. After I retired, I was finally able to delve into the wonderful world of art and learn all those things I never had time for. I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher and belong to a wonderful group of CZTs that get together often and share new information and techniques. My passion is learning and playing with new techniques and products, and a great deal of my inspiration comes from nature. I love black and white art, but I also love color, so much of my work is Zentangle Inspired Art, combining the two. I also love the symmetry of zendalas and do my own layouts. My dream is to create more whimsical pieces. I was originally inspired and brought to Zentangle by the works of Norma Burnell, who does wonderful fairy and fantasy pieces.



Terri Ayers

Terri Ayers

I am Terri Ayers. Where did my art start? I am not sure of the exact moment, but it has been a special interest to me from middle school onward.  I am a potter at present and have a home studio and 3 shops/galleries carry my creations.  For fun and income, I teach pottery classes and offer canvas painting parties on location and at a local yogurt shop.  I also love watercolor and just recently discovered art and bible journaling.  Oh the wonders of mixed media!  Denver Botanic Gardens offers some wonderful art classes which have diverted some of my attention from the pottery wheel, but I just can’t resist learning new things. I’ve dabbled in card-making, quilting, calligraphy and beading and many other interests.  I feel very blessed to have the freedom to be creative on most days and look forward to future trips to see and capture the sights!

Venisa Gallegos

Venisa Gallegos

I am Venisa Gallegos and I love all things Zentangle, no, no, I mean all things Hand stitching, no, no, I mean all things Beading, no, no, I mean all things Micro-Macramé.  I think you get the picture.  I love playing will all different craft mediums, however the one constant is always my use of Color.  I love Color.  In fact, my motto is “You have to use ALL THE COLORS”.  This can be for gel pens, thread, fabric, beads, and anything else you can imagine.  I strive to use all the colors which is the best way for me to express myself creatively.


See how much fun these women are? I look forward to seeing what they will contribute over the next 6 months.
