I have Copic markers that I love but I need some pens for journaling, gel pens, pens that give the 3-d look. Are there other types of pens that I need?? LOL!!! What do you recommend and what do you use them for??

You can get Sakura pens in so many different finishes - gel, glitter, souffle (which puff up)

I love the Sakura stardust pens to add a bit of bling to something. I use Creative Memories fine tip pens/markers for journaling. If I'm journaling on black, I use the signo pen.

I don't use these to journal, but they're a GREAT accent.

I'm also a huge fan of the signo white pen and the sakura are awesome too! Both staples in my scrappy stash!

I have Zig pens that I use for journaling. Sometimes I also use my sharpie pens (not markers!, these are the newer fine point pens that don't bleed). Depends on the thickness of print that I am looking for.

I love the copic multiline sp they are refillable and you can change the tips to hair thin to thick for calligraphy.

I have the zig, too. Got them at J's with a 50% off coupon! LOVE THEM! They are dual tipped and came in a set.

The Sakura Souffle pens are not really like a puff paint or anything. The ink is formulated to stay on top of the paper so it doesn't soak into it. It's sort of an embossed look, but it doesn't poof up or anything. Because it sits on top of the paper, you can use the pens on dark paper like on these layouts.

Mine came in a 3 pack (3 different pen tip sizes). I think I bought them on clearance. I had no idea what Zig brand was when I bought them!
