pretty pebbles part 2...


A couple of months ago we blogged these white pebbles that we decorated with black pen. We have been meaning to do the same with black pebbles but it has taken us a while to find a white pen that would work on their slightly shiny surface. A trip to an art supply store solved the problem, and we have been procrastinating from our mountain of work by drawing lacy designs. We think the end result looks a bit doily-ish. These are so much fun to do - why don't you try them this weekend!

Hi Kylie,
We used a Pentel White Marker which can be used on metal, glass, plastic and glass. Hope that helps.

Very pretty, girls. Motif reminds me some Eastern European folk art.
