My new Folded Ruling Pen and Friday Favorites
There on the left is my folded ruling pen. I didn't make it. I bought it from John Neal Bookseller. I wanted one after seeing Melanie Testa's blog. She is making lines every single day with her ruling pen. She even has multiple videos about how to use it. I need to improve my drawing so I thought having a ruling pen would inspire me to work on drawing skills. Here is a first attempt (blobs and all). It is an italigo print I made last year with lines added with the ruling pen. Once I get a good grasp of the pen, I will start working on fabric.
Catherine Bainbridge has an interesting blog. This post is called cloth doodling and shows how to reverse applique using doodle lines on cloth. Best explanation I have seen for directions on reverse applique.
