Create Calligraphy on Your Scrapbook Layouts

With thousands of amazing pens and craft products from Japan and around the world, it was difficult for me to narrow down a product to feature from JetPens on CK‘s blog!  After a long search, I’m honored to be a guest blogger and share about our favorite Pilot Parallel Pen.  It’s an awesome calligraphy pen that consists of two parallel metal plates, allowing the writer to produce lines sharper than many existing calligraphy pens. You can also create blended color lines with its special mixable color ink. 

The Pilot Parallel Pen is available in 1.5 mm, 2.4 mm, 3.8 mm and 6.0 mm sizes.  I will be giving away a 2.4 mm sample set (used for this tutorial) at the end of this post!  Each set comes with one Parallel Pen, one red ink cartridge, one black ink cartridge, a cleaning converter, and instruction booklet.  You can follow the examples in the instruction booklet to create beautiful calligraphy for your scrapbooking needs.

To use the pen, simply insert the cartridge into the pen. The ink should start flowing soon after.  To create beautiful color gradation you will need two pens with two different color ink cartridges.  Hold the pens vertically and touch one nib to the other nib perpendicularly and hold for several seconds.  

The color from the top pen will be transferred to the bottom pen!   The longer you hold the pens together, the more ink will be transferred.  As you write with the bottom pen you will see a unique blend of colors that will slowly fade out as the transferred ink is used up.  It will be a very elegant touch to your scrapbook page!

Now for the giveaway! Please visit the JetPens site and comment on this post with your favorite product find.  We have everything from popular white ink gel pens (Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Pen – White Ink) to craft adhesives.  One comment will be randomly chosen to win a Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pen – 2.4 mm Nib Width  sample!
