        Love this info Rae! I wish I had the Viva pen when I made my In Flight LO! I used liquid pearls on the butterflies and like you said it was hard to make a perfect pearl.

          Thanks, Barbara. Seriously- the pearl pen is a thousand times better.

                Thanks, Rae! I have a couple of Viva pearl pens, but I haven't gotten to play much this summer. I can't wait to give them a try!

                      I've always sucked with the Liquid Pearls, I'm going to have to give the Viva Pen a try.
                      I love the idea of using the Bazzil stencils. I have some of those myself. If memory serves, they came with one of the very, very early kits.
                      Thanks, Rae!

                        Great video. I loved it! It's funny I like liquid pearls but when I got the pen in the kit and tried it I instantly noticed a huge difference. I have to agree with ya!!! I really liked it!

                          Awesome video Rae! And so so true. I didn't like the viva pearl pens in the beginning (a couple of years ago) because the were so fluid. I was used to use the liquicd pearls by Ranger. But yes….. Viva Pearl pens are way much easier to use!

                            Awesome!
                            I see that I have to try my Viva pearl pens more. I have only used them on some cards to make holly berry with the red and some dots with others. Have to try to make a swirl.

                              In the past, my dd has used my Bazzil stencils and Stickles to make blingy swirls on her LO's. She is really good with the Stickles! Mine never look quite that good!

                                If you don't have any stencils, just use any flourish stamp and a watermark ink pad as a guide to follow along with pearl paint for an easy handmade bling flourish.

                                  Oh, that's a great idea, too! Thanks Vicky!
