Art Journal Every Day: Sakura Solid Markers

ArtJournalEveryDayLogo-150If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here.  All of the previous posts can be found archived here.  There is a flickr group for sharing right here.  Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day!  No need to finish anything or even like it.  If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post.  Thanks!

People often ask me where my inspiration comes from.  It's a great question with about a million answers.  One of those answers is: new supplies.  (Can I get an Amen?)  There's nothing quite like a new tool or a new colorant to get the mojo cracking!  When I was teaching in Connecticut a student shared a new-to-me supply: Sakura Solid Markers.

I put together a quick video to share what I know about them so far:

I think they're perfect for art journaling!  They tick off everything on my happy list:

  • Waterproof once dry.
  • Opaque.
  • Write on a slick surface.
  • Blendable when wet.

I recently played with them in my art journal.  You can check out this fast forward video where I'm just mucking around!

Here is the page from the video:
