There’s been a booming hit lately for colored pens. We couldn’t blame them, who wouldn’t be entised to grab beautiful colored pens? And looks like I’ll be joining the bandwagon.
Yesterday, I passed by our local bookstore to look for pens. Hmm no, actually, the motif of passing by in the bookstore is to burn time. But guess what, I went out of the bookstore spending P500 pesos, most likely around 10$. And what I bought? 3 colored pens + holder.
The pens are much cheaper if I got the holder and 3 inks, so that’s what I did.
In my 20+ years of existence, it’s the first time I saw a 0.28 pens with different colors. That’s the reason why I decided to buy them. Photo above is the sample of the pens.
It’s smooth to use, and very pretty because the output lines are very delicately thin! ❤ I’m opting to use these for small scribbling in my journal.
And of course, when we talk about pen, who wouldn’t thought of Muji?
Muji makes one of the best quality pens. But the thinnest I got is 0.38. But who cares? The colors are beautiful, and it’s from Muji.
Muji pens glides smoothly, and appears pleasing strike of colors 🙂
If you’ll ask me if I’ll get uni 0.28 pens? A big yes for me. I’m planning of getting the other 0.28 available colors. And who wouldn’t say no for Muji pens? I’ll also complete all the .38 colors.
Picture below shows the consolidated pens inks.
I have a friend who requested to make a card for his special one. And since I’m quite used in making water-color with flowers, sharing the card below :
I painted the flowers lightly to pop-up the quote 🙂
I hope my friend would like it.
I’ve been wanting to have a place to go when it comes to calligraphy. I usually end up searching for online sites to get some calligraphy nibs as these are not easily accessible in our local bookstores.
Good thing, the craft central already opened it’s physical store (not a part of a shelf of a store) in Greenbelt. So, when I was in Greenbelt, I decided to passed by their store.
And just what I’ve been expecting, I found a corner for calligraphy nibs, and no doubt, I fell in love!!! ❤
They also have a corner for all the their inks, which, well, I haven’t tried yet.
There’s also a corner for their calligraphy brush pens
and some of which are from hobby outputs:

Some of my supporting friends joined the free name request which I offered (already ended – January 13 SGT). Here are some of the designs I created. I love flowers, that’s why the name were all embedded with flowers.
These were all written using hunt 56.
Year 2017 just begun, and I’m quite dealing with issues lately. But still, I’m trying to attract all the positivity in life. And of course, to at least forget the stress, I grabbed my paint and paper, and started to do calligraphy again using my metallic diy ink.
“Year to Sparkle” – I got this phrase from the calligraphy group which I’ve joined since last year. And since I’m making some metallic inks, I find the phrase fits the inks. And also, I want my 2017 to sparkle, I still believe, despite of all the problems, that 2017 is my year.
To make the “Year to sparkle 2017”, I used a paint brush found in our local bookstore and got myself a black paper so that the silver ink will really show.
Did you like this post? Anyone would want their names to be written? I’m accepting name requests FOR FREE. All you have to do is to type in your name/s in the comment section, and I’ll add the names in my future calligraphy post 😀
During my spare time, or if I feel stressed out, you’ll see me getting a piece of paper, my holder and opening bottles of ink and I’ll start writing.
I’m a self taught calligrapher. I first started to explore calligraphy when my workmate introduce this to us. Of course, because I love diy and wanted to have a diy wedding someday, I decided to start learning calligraphy.
I was almost gave up because, really, it’s so frustrating and not fun — well, at first.
Let’s jump to this day.. So after a year, I’ve already improved. And currently I’m trying to make my own metallic inks.
Picture above shows my diy blue and silver inks. I decided to use a black paper to enhance the metallic effect of the inks. I’m still in the process of exploring and discovering on ways to create a perfect calligraphy ink. So far, Im quite happy with the outcome, but I know there’s still ways to improve the diy inks. These are water based btw. 😀
