To say people are excited about these new pens is a bit of an understatement I think! Tombow fans have been waiting for their beloved pen to come in a variety of colors, me included! It’s exciting for our wish to have come true! I’ve been using these colored fudenosuke pens constantly since they came out, so today I’m showing you the different ways I’m using them personally. With so many different artists out there and their incredible brilliant ideas, there are definitely other ways to use these pens (for example, check out these 2 ways from Studio 80 Design and Kiley in Kentucky, BRILLIANT!! @studio80design’s post @kileyinkentucky’s post) So try new things, you may be surprised at what you find!

Let’s look at some fun ways you can use these awesome pens!

BIBLE LETTERING

I have the ESV Journaling Bible (interleaved edition) and these pens are PERFECT for Bible Lettering. I had mainly used the black Fudenosuke to letter with but now I’ve got color options! And the lettering comes out so pretty in colors!

ART JOURNAL/DIARY

I recently received a dot grid journal in Tombow’s VIP Box and LOVE it! I decided to turn it into an art diary. (So think art journal and smoosh it together with a diary!) I received some wonderful encouragement recently from some friends and wanted to jot down those words to remember down the road. These pens can work in any kind of journal, planner or diary.

MAKE YOUR OWN STICKERS

About a month ago I came across some sticker paper in the craft section at Target and thought it would be fun to try and make my own. You can create stickers out of your lettering, or create doodles like the one I made below! I drew a jack-o-lantern for Halloween using the orange, green and black Fudenosuke pens. Stickers like this are perfect for planners, any kind of journal, or to give out as gifts in some happy mail!

OUTLINING & SHADOWING YOUR LETTERING

Using the Colored Fudenosuke Pens in conjunction with your Tombow Dual Brush Pens, you can create some gorgeous outlining and shadowing! This technique works best if you use a Dual Brush Pen that is about 1-2 times lighter than the color of the Fudenosuke you’re using. You want the outlining and shadowing to be darker than your lettering. Simply trace around your letters with the Fudenosuke color of choice, then thicken your down strokes a little more to add more shadow.
