Getting into Markers
Okay, well I have been away for awhile but I am going to try to do better. So I thought I would tell you guys that I have been wanting markers, yes I know I am a grownup but I have been wanting markers just the same for quit some time. And I think I have finely figuered out which ones, I am going to get. I was looking at Copics for awhile but they are just to expensive, but then I found Promarkers, made by Letraset. They are used mostly in the UK but more and more they are being used here in the States. A company called Carpe Diem has the Promarkers for $1.49 where as the Copic Ciao are $2.49 Copic Sketch $3.95, now the copics are refillable and the nibs are replaceable but what I like about the Promarkers also is the nibs on them are finer. To get into smaller places and the Copic nibs are not as fine. Now this is all just my opinion, I have not used the Promarkers yet but I do have a few Copics but now I plan on getting on the rest of the Promarkers which come in 148 colours. Mainly because of the price the bullet nib. And now there are a couple of my favorite blogs that have started using the Promarkers as well, Creations with Christina , she is one of my favorites for tutorials, had some sent to here and the link is a good one. Also Okieladybug's is also another site who has just started using them. When I find more I will post them. That is all for now, Happy scrappy, and Marking.
