White Pen Challenge!

It's doodling time at Practical Scrappers! Pull out those white pens and show us how you can use them this week at Practical Scrappers. I chose to pull out my Crafter's Workshop doodling templates that I have and my Bic Wite-out pen, yep, that's right,wite-out pen!! I have not found a white pen that I truely love yet, so until I find that special one that is as bright white as my wite-out, I will continue use my wite-out pen. Now some of ladies have asked me how I get it to keep from flowing out all over the place under my template when I am doodling, so I will share my secret. I first doodle with a white crayola colored pencil to get my perfect stencil, then I lightly trace over the white colored pencil with my wit-out pen. The trick with a wite-out pen is to apply minimal pressure (just enough to get it flowing) when you are doodling so you don't get those "blotchy" spots. It took me some practice to get the feel of how much pressure I should be applying. I practiced on some scraps of dark colored paper to get the hang of it.

*UPDATE May 20, 2010* I am also submitting this LO for entry in Examiner Scrapbook Contest for their weekly challenge which happens to be Disney.
