One of my favorite things to do with my focal images is to color them in with either Sakura Glaze or Souffle pens or Pilot's Latte or Sweets pens.
I don't rub them in while their wet (I know some folks who do).
I color in section by section. Make sure that you don't schmear the ink as you work as it does take a few minutes to dry.
You can also layer colors (once the previous color has dried).
Coloring in is a nice way to alter an image and make it work with whatever else is on the page.
Remember that the Sakura Glazes are a gloss finish. They also can be lighter in color depending upon what your original base color is on the page.
Sakura Souffle, Pilot Latte and Sweets are all a matte finish so they will show up on anything including dark colors.
My analogy is if you want to use a red pen on a pink page and be able to see it, use the souffle, latte or sweets. If you want it more subdued, use a Glaze pen.
I'll show you the finished page soon!
Don't forget I have two new classes this weekend (Zinnia in South Pasadena and Simi Valley) as well as Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale, AZ coming up next weekend. I hope to see YOU there!
