Yes, it really did!!! I started with just one - now look at these beauties - LOL. Yikes they had better stop coming out with new products - where am I going to put them?
Gelly Roll pens - the name alone is rather addicting - why do they have to name everything after food items that are simply divine? Just thinking about the names makes me realize I need to go and eat some breakfast - now I'm hungry - LOL.
It started with the Star Dust and to this day it is still my favorite Gelly Roll. Some people use the word glitter, other's say sparkle - but well I now have a new word thanks to the class with Karen the other night. Her word is "shimmer" - and oh shimmer it does! What is so fabulous about this pen is that on cool tones it appears silver, on warm tones it appears gold. It is extremely difficult to photograph, but the effect it gives to your work will truly stun and amaze you. It just steps everything up a notch. You will never regret buying this pen as your first Gelly Roll. BUT I must add that if you buy this one... well look what happens. Click on the shoe below and it will pop up so that you can really see it SHIMMER!!!
Then I added the Clear Glaze - another MUST have in my opinion. Most of you are familiar with Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects - well this is that product in a pen! You can control it like none other, putting it in the smallest of places and the beauty of it is it dries quickly. On this Lockhart shoe the Clear Glaze just makes these shoes come to life - it is just incredible IRL.
So... I had to purchase ALL the glaze pens - LOL. They are beautiful!!! They add a transparent, 3-D dimension to your work very much like embossing does - only this is quick and easy - no mess to clean-up. You can use these pens on plastic (transparencies), shiny paper, glass, metal, vellum - I'm guessing the list goes on, but I haven't had a chance to experiment any further than these. AND you can do it in the tiniest of spaces - just one little dot, or write a word, or...
Then we have my new favorites!!! Souffle pens - there is something about their name alone that makes them delicious. Yep - gotta go eat breakfast now!! The current colors are sooo perfect for spring and summer - I'm secretly hoping that they come out with new ones by the fall! Yeah I know - where am I going to put them?!? These beauties are also fabulous for many different surfaces - they are even suggesting that you embellish your cell phone with these. Can you imagine the doodling possibilites for those who like "busy"? I'm a clean sorta girl and so my cell phone won't be seeing these except for perhaps my signature - maybe that way I won't accidentally pick up my DH's phone
