Playin' With Pearls

I came across this blog not too long ago. The lady who it belongs to (who goes by the name of Lexi) had kindly posted some tutorials about using 'pearl pens'. I do not have any such thing, although I do own White Opal Liquid Pearls from Ranger so I was pretty excited to come across these two tutorials: Line Tutorial and Flourish Tutorial! xD

I decided to give it a go on some scraps of card, and here were the results.

Line (Purple Card) & Flourish (Green Card) Designs

Close up of the Flourish. I obviously need to improve the control of the
bottle, I would hardly call the big drops even!
LOL. First attempt and all that..

Close up of the Line. Pretty sweet, huh?

Well, they could have been a lot worse considering this was my first attempt. Practice makes pefect and such like! So I will definately be giving this another go!! Pop on over to Lexi's blog for full step by step instructions, where by she uses pearl pens!!

Good luck, and happy crafting.
