for Winter Wonderland at

Art Journal Journey

and for our 99 Faces Challenge 

I like her.. she is drawn with Stabilo Mark it All - so simple and  always fabulous satisfying results with this miracle pen. 

I purchase  them in sets of 12 from Amazon
and use them all the time. They are so high pigmented, that when diluted with water,  it looks like you have taken black ink.
 I sharpen them with my mechanical sharpening machine which I got very cheap ( less than 4 Euro) at the office supplies discounter.

Thank you for calling by to see me !


  1. Now I know why I can't draw. I don't have one of those miracle pencils.

    All joking aside, this is a lovely face, and I was glad that you shared both your pencils and your incredibly inexpensive sharpener. It looks like you have put some of these pencils to very good use.

  2. nicht wirklich janus, aber so ein bisschen!
    herzlich Pippa

  3. Wonderful snow white, she looks great. Very nicely drawn with your super pencils. Have a beautiful Sunday, hugs, Valerie

  5. Hallo Susi,
    wie immer ein sehr gelungenes Bild.
    Ich hätte schon sooo oft Fragen zu deinem Material überhaupt zu deinem Journal gehabt. allerdings finde ich keine Emailadresse.
    Moderiere ja all meine Kommentare, vielleicht schreibst sie mir mal, natürlich nur wenn du magst.
    Schönen, gemütlichen Sonntag.

  7. Wow, she is beautiful Susi. My hubby has been looking for some black pencils and these ones look fabulous. Thanks for the tip. hugs :)

  8. Susi,
    I believe the fabulousness is all in the artists hands in this case! yes, the pencils are awesome, but your portraits just keep getting better and better!
    i do love the nubs that you use, I have a few small ones like that myself! heehee
    Happy Sunday dear friend! xo

  9. Wow- you are really moving along with your 99 faces. I like her too! She has a lot of emotion on her face! And those Stabilos are fantastic!!!! I have a box too-they are really amazing. Enjoy what's left to your weekend and the start of your new week.

  10. Das ist ein guter Tipp mit diesen Stiften... solche könnte ich auch gut gebrauchen, gerade, weil sie so satt malen. LG Ulrike

  12. A very beautiful snow white Susi, those pencils sound good to use.
