Travel Journal with the Freestyle Pens

The Foil Quill Freestyle Pens are my new favorite of all tools! I immediately fell in love with them. Without much preparation or equipment you can start right away. And it’s so easy. I will certainly use the pens often.

I used the All-In-One Kit for my project. The pens have different sizes (Fine Tip, Standard Tip and Bold Tip). So I tried them first. I could see exactly how each pen writes and what the result looks like.

For my Travel Journal I wanted to design the background with leaves. For this I cut out sheets of paper in different shapes (paper is from the Horizon collection of Pink Paislee).

Before I started with the pen, I used wash tape on the cardstock (underside) and taped it on the mat so it doesn’t slip. Now stick the foil over the cardstock. I was careful so that the Washi Tape is not stuck on the Cardstock. This makes it easier to remove.

Now plug in the Freestyle Pen and heat it up. Meanwhile I stamped my cut out leaves on the foil. So I already have the shapes to trace them with the pen. Here I used the pen with the standard tip.

After I foiled the first two leaves, I added leaves to my cardstock in other places. Until the background was filled with golden leaves.

At the end a few cut out leaves were glued on and the page was finished. Since this side of the spread is very colorful, I kept the other side with the photo rather simple.
