Week #1 / 1 Jan: Happy New Year - 2017 Weekly Ink Project

Recommended Posts

2017 is coming within a few hours! Join us in our 2017 Weekly Ink Project! Click here to read more about this community project. We are going to create separate threads for each week in this Co-Razy-Views subforum.

 

So we are starting this project with our first theme: Happy New Year! Pick an ink that'll bring you good luck for the new year!

 

You are welcome to share with us your choice of ink, your writing, drawing, doodling or anything with the ink in this thread. Tell us why you choose this ink, what your new year resolutions are, etc.

 

You can take a photo, make a scan, or even better, write letters and CRV reviews (what is a CRV?) and mail them to the many ink pals here. You are welcome to check back on this thread even when we've gone past this week.

 

I'll be posting about my own choice tomorrow. If you want to do CRV reviews with me, just DM me with your address or ask for my snail mail address. (Given the snail-y nature of mails I might send out CRV sheets every two or three weeks, instead of every week.)

 

Enjoy inking and happy new year to all!

 

---------

The theme of Week #2 will be: Throw of the Dice - Close your eyes and pick a random ink from your stash.

Happy New Year everyone. It's 9:30am on 1/1/17 at my holiday home in NZ. Here is my post which was written on white TR paper with a Schneider Base Pen with a LH Nib. (I don't know why it's come out sideways.) Despite it's challenges, I love BSB, it's the only ink I always have in use. I'm particularly fond of its vibrancy.

 

I am really looking forward to reading everyone's posts. 😊

So, even on lined paper, I can't keep my left edge straight...

 

It looks like Pelikan Edelstein Garnet, Queen Pillar Box Red and Robert Oster Fire Engine Red are the purest, reddest Reds.

I've been looking forward to this weekly ink project starting & at last the fun has begun..... :-)

 

Here's my ink for week #1. Red has always been a favourite and lucky colour for me, and this one is so aptly named for this week's theme. It might possibly even re-appear for week #4!

A most fitting ink name!

Hi folks, lovely submissions so far. What fun this will be and a great place to share ink ideas.

 

Anyway, here is mine. I went with Diamine Brandy Dazzle, because I'd like 2017 to be filled with dazzle (and brandy).

Happy new year everyone!

I used iroshizuku kon-peki for two reasons:

 

1) the colour makes me think about blue skies and what I really want from this 2017 is serenity.

 

2) I never had the chance to try out iroshizukus inks, so i hope that 2017 brings me lots of new wonderful things to appreciate.

 

Iroshizuku kon-peki + twsbi vac 700

Well said Liz :)

 

Thanks! I don't usually do resolutions, but as I was considering inks for this thread, it just came to me this this is what my 2017 needs to be. Pulling it off will be the hard part. :)

When I read the theme, I immediately thought of yellow. Not sure why, but I am always yellow in board games and so perhaps I link it with good luck!

 

I don't intend to write in yellow this week, so cheating slightly here and using a dip pen and Winsor & Newton canary yellow ink.
