Black Paper and White Ink

Some time back I bought a pad of black paper. I put it in a cabinet and forgot about it until recently, when I noticed it while looking for something else.

I had recently bought a new white pen. I figured I’d do a little doodling to see how the pen worked, and if I liked using black paper. I drew objects I saw on the TV show we were watching as well as some fanciful embellishments. I don’t know who the woman is that I pictured – just drew a face and there she was.

I’m not that interested in the black paper but I like the white pen a lot. That’s my conclusion from this little foray. But, there are still pages left in the black paper pad. I am sure I will find something to do with them in due time.

I think that this page represents the idea of daydreaming, or ideas that flow through the mind with no order to them except what they make for themselves.

    Yes, I agree it IS warmer, and more intimate. Your experimental nature is a real inspiration, Claudia. And thank you for the pen info — I’d never heard of Jet Pens! Just checked the site and I will have an absolute blast looking through it and ordering some new ones.

    Thank you. I just bought a couple of gray pens and have used them only a little so far. Your idea is wonderful. It inspires me to get out my black paper and see what I come up with!
