Of late, when I scan a piece in, I try to include the info regarding both the paper and the medium(s) I used. I didn’t with this one. I know I was using the aqua Fabriano Tiziano but I have to guess what pen I used.
My suspicion is that it was a Yasutomo Y&C Gel Stylist Gel Ink Pen – 0.5 mm with Burgundy ink. Its a metal-tipped needle point pen of small size that fits nicely in my small hand. I like the flow of the ink and love the burgundy color. Every time I use it, I wonder why I don’t use it more often. I suppose it’s because metal-tipped pens are my least favorite type. Which isn’t to say I don’t like them. I just like fabric-tip, brush tip and fountain pen better, as a rule.
I’ve always tended to use both sides of the page in my journals, in order to get the most from them, but maybe I should start using one side only and write down the info about the mediums I used and any notes about thoughts I want to remember. I may have to do that.
