(I was just cleaning my pens then it occurred to me I had forgotten to create this month's thread!)

 

 

For September, make a combo of two (or more) inks you've seen other members use in the past couple of months. You don't have to use the exact combo from one member. You can mix and match!

I'm getting strange file size errors, so this is lower res than I'd hope. But happy September!

Great submission! This month's a toughie--there's a lot to choose from. A lot of the inks that have caught my eye in previous submissions are ones I don't own (yet). This is just a clever trap to spur more purchases, isn't it... :lol:

Thank you. Yes, I think you're right--a definite trap!!

Going through previous submissions, I found way too many great inks to choose from. In the end I narrowed it down to six inks that I thought shared a common mood (apart from Yama Dori's sheen...):

1. Franklin Christoph Tenebris Purpuratum (EBGBs, January)
2. Kyo-Iro Soft Snow of Ohara (namrehsnoom, February)
3. L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio Oconto (namrehsnoom, August)
4. Sailor Yama Dori (MsRedpen, February)
5. Papier Plume Bayou Nightfall (namrehsnoom, February)
6. Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu Syogun (Newjelan, June)

Looks like namrehsnoom and I either own a lot of inks in common or have similar tastes (or both). Anyway, I haven't used any of these in a long time, so I took this opportunity to remind myself that I don't always need to buy new inks to get a nice change of pace... and I also have Sailor Yodaki in my shopping cart as a result of browsing previous submissions, so maybe I wasn't so successful...

I can see how all these colours are totally of namrehsnoom's taste!

:lol: ... and I totally like the other colours you selected too ! Great presentation, and I like that you keep to your theme regarding your presentation style for these challenges. Way cool !

I couldn't agree more  :)

My September entries, thanks to everyone, your entries inspire me every month. Sorry about the shadows, too many windows  ;) . Look at the sheen on Yama-Guri  :wub: It's like shimmer.

It is a rather fine line between inspiration and full copycat.... And I have big feet  :D

 

My entry for this month; Robert Oster Fire & Ice (thank you Visvamitra), Diamine Coral (thank you Chrissy) and Kaweco Paradise Blue (thank you Torrilin)... presented in the style of Crahptacular and Lgsoltek!

I think I actually bought these 3 inks thanks to your posts here; so that was proper enabling.

As usually the image hosting site blurs the pictures up - the originals are clear! So I'm sorry

I haven't used my pens and inks much this month, so I haven't had the chance to fill my pens with all my choices. I did manage to use the three colours I picked:

Callifolio Heure Dorée, inspired by namrehsnoom;

KWZI Grapefruit, inspired by crahptacular;

Visconti Blue, inspired by Newjelan.

Stunning! I love the homage to Piet Mondrian, one of my favourite artists.

These were the inks that we used my first pen posse and they ended up on my blotter.  You will notice a lot of Private Reserve Avacado (not avocado).
