Week of Sakura - Permapaque® Markers...

Let's just put it right out there... if you want to add color to any project, you need to check out the Permapaque® Opaque Pigment Markers by Sakura.  Now, my favorites (the Sakura Glaze® and Gelly Roll® Pens) give projects lots of color with a "wet" or shiny finished look.  The Permapaque® gives you a rich matte finish, bold colors, and metallic finishes as well. 

I have done a lot of stamping and coloring this week, which I started doing with the Permapaque® Markers as well (see confession regarding my lack of drawing ability in the posts below...).  Then, I decided to try something a little different... I created this acrylic wall hanging for Jeff's office.  This photo of Anna is his current favorite and I thought his office needed a bit of "girly girl!"  ;-)  I used several of the Permapaque® Markers (mostly metallics) and stamped on the back of the acrylic.  Then I added some Prima flowers and rhinestones to the front for some "pop."  I finished it off using the Permapaque® Fine Point, White, for the journaling and this quick little project was DONE!

One note about the Permapaque® and stamping... these pens dry VERY quickly... which in most cases is a very GOOD THING... unless you are trying to ink up all the details of a stamp, line it up, and then stamp... you have to be pretty fast to get the job done before it dries, but the end result is VERY COOL!

Now... about the RAK... I KNOW that you guys are lurking... the number of hits on my blog have EXPLODED in the past few days... but you are not commenting... come on now... that is the only way to get in on the random drawing for the RAK!!!  You have until midnight, August 1st to post comments on one of more of the Sakura posts. 

Make it a "Wooooo Hooooo" kinda day!!
