Just in case you were wondering, I am still very much smitten with my Karin Brushmarkers from The Ink Pad! They have a beautiful brush, come in loads of colors and work wonderfully well on a variety of paper styles, including this page from an old dictionary!
I've seen some very cool dictionary page art on Instagram and I've been wanting to try it myself. I was worried that the marker might be too wet OR that it would smear the ink, but luckily neither of those happened. I do, however, highly recommend testing your pens on the an extra sheet --or an inconspicuous corner-- of the specific paper you want to use. I also took the precaution of backing my thin dictionary page with a piece of plain white cardstock before I started lettering, so that it would not tear or buckle. I used some nice bright shades of Karin Marker (Amber, Cerise, Turquoise and Lilac) for my four words, and a grey brush pen for the shadows. At the end I added a few Eyelet Outlet Heart Brads, a couple of mats and some machine stitching around the edge for a more polished look.
