Father's Day "Freebie" & Paint Pens

For your artful pleasure.

A JPEG too!

We're celebrating Father's Day this weekend here in the States, so thought you might like a manly image in honor of the celebration. Happy Father's Day to all of the Dad's!

***************
Sharpie Paint Pens


When Sharpie discontinued their beloved Poster Paint Pens last year, the art journaling community went into a tizzy. (The white pens were wonderful!) I'm happy to report that they're BACK!!! They're now being marketed as water based paint pens - as opposed to the old poster paint pens, and I found them at Michaels. They were on an end cap in great colors, and more importantly, there's a great assortment of different sized tips. You can see the new pens at the Sharpie website if you click here. Yippee!!! It's the little things that make my day!

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Oh my gosh THANKS! My white Sharpie is about to run dry, and I've been wondering what on earth I'd do when it was gone. Now I know. Go to Michael's!

Happy Father's Day to any special man in your life. This image is lovely and you are so sweet for sharing it.

I've never had any nice pens. Never even heard of the poster Sharpies. I must live in a cave. I will check them out the next time I'm at Michael's.
