I'm a planner girl through and through. I love decorating them and using them to keep track all of the many projects and activities that make up my days. So when I come across a new tool to use in my planners I can hardly wait to give it a try. This was the case with these Gelatos® Highlighters. They're acid-free pigment sticks that glide on without water and give a nice vibrant color to your planner pages.
I used them in this week's planner layout and can tell you that they'll be something I keep in my planner bag.
As I usually do, my planner pages are made up of a mixture of stamping and writing. I used one of my favorite pens which is a Essential Pitt Artist Pen and the stencils that come included in the the Gelatos Highlighters to draw my boxes and tick boxes.
To add color, you can rub the Gelatos Highlighters directly from the stick onto your paper, or you can do as I do, which is to rub the pigment onto your finger and then use your finger as a "tool" to apply the color to your paper.
I like the nice smooth finish you get when using your finger.
Apply the Gelatos Highlighters.
And there you go, wonderfully pigmented color that you can write over.
You can see here the rich color that these Highlighters add.
Whether you're a planner girl, a student, or just like to highlight sections in your books or notebooks, I encourage you to give them a try. You just might find them to be the highlight of your week too!
