Tags inks love paper planning started week work

Comments

Colourcoding in my planner.I have taken some time recently to work out what works best for me and my planner. I have a Leuchtturm1917 Weekly Planner, and though I love the paper — almost all my fountainpens and inks work great on it — the layout of the week has started to bug me. I just can’t do only three lines on a Saturday / Sunday…

So, I once again ordered a Plannerism Planner, in teal. It has super-awesome weekly layout! Every day gets a full column so no more trying to squeeze a lot of stuff into a tiny box!

One thing I do want to bring to this PlPl: in the Leuchtturm, whenever I wrote down an appointment (medical, dinner with friends, visiting family) I’d draw a tiny line in the matching colour on the annual overview pages. I colour-code my type of appointments and this makes it very easy to see, at a glance, if I risk overbooking myself. It also lets me use my pink glitter gell-pen (FTW!) to mark days that I don’t want to do anything more in.

Inked up a few pens for happy writing. I like these colours separately and the combination also works well.

My preciousssssss!I wanted this pen for a while and decided to treat myself to it. Its arrival experienced some delay (apparently, we have postal strikes) but it did arrive safe and sound eventually.

And it looks absolutely stunning in real life. The photos don’t capture the shiny of the flowers very well, and it looks much better in daylight than it does in artificial light. I bought it for the pretty-factor, and much to my delight, it also writes well. I wrote several letters with it so far, and yes, after four pages my hand will hurt, but normally I don’t even last four pages.

Some more photos of it, and its writing:

Not very well lit but you get the idea. Not listed: platinum preppy with blue ghost and Waverley (in repair). And I have a TWSBi mini 1.1, not 1.5. Oops.

I love De Atramentis Plum, but can’t easily get it in the NL/UK/EU. So, instead of having it shipped from the US, I attempted to copy it. I used several Noodler’s ink I already have (Turquoise, 54th and Bad Blue Heron). Still have some tweaking to do, but like the overall result a lot!

The nib of the pen broke a while back, so I went looking for a new nib. I found one in the form of a ‘sold for spare parts’ Mabie Todd Blackbird. The nib had seen better times, tipping-wise. I did everything you shouldn’t do, and now it writes again :D

And some tame ones too. They don’t really seem to mind Nano and she only chases them on the grass. Sweet deal.

Tags fountain pen ink inksamples paint

Comments

Using ink-samples to paint. I’ve used my ink-samples to paint for a while now and I thought I’d share my ‘trick’. Not really a trick, but it makes it easy to use them.

Using ink-samples to paint. Before I open the vial, I shake it, so inkdrops stick to the cap.

Using ink-samples to paint. When I take the cap off, I simply add a few drops of water (or more, depending on the dilution I want). I use a temporary cap to keep the vial safe (I speak from experience cough).

Using ink-samples to paint. And then I paint. :D

When I don’t need it anymore, I discard the contents of the cap, wipe it clean and screw it back. This way, the ink stays clean and I don’t feel I waste much of it. Sometimes when a vial almost completely runs out — because I have in fact put the ink in a pen shocker — I’ll add water to the vial itself and mark it for ‘paint’. This doesn’t always prevent me putting it in a pen anyway, but hey.
