Playing with Sketch Pens January 28, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone. This is my first post for Just Nick's blog and I am so excited to be here. I've owned a Portrait for two years now and I am hoping to use it more this year! I love how versatile the Silhouette Portrait is. There are so many things you can do with this cool little machine if you're willing to try new things.

When I found out that I made the team, I ordered two new mats and some sketch pens. I've been wanting to try the sketch pens for some time now, but thought it would be too complicated. Little did I know how simple these pens are to use. Really. All I had to do was pop the blade out, insert my sketch pen and tighten the grip. Then I just changed the setting to "sketch pen" and I was done. So easy.

I decided to play with the Rosette Background. I thought it would be perfect with this photo that my five year old took of me at the park just a few weeks ago.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I was able to inspire you to give sketch pens a try!
