Sakura Of America - Power To Express


Give every handwritten note, gift, and drawing a bit of shine and glamour with Gelly Roll Silver Shadow®. This brilliantly colored gel pen writes in two tones: silver metallic outlined by a contrasting ink color. No need to shake, pump or squeeze – just write like you would with any gel pen.

How It Works
Gelly Roll Silver Shadow® is comprised of dyestuff and metallic powder. Dyestuff is the colorful ink that outlines the writing. Metallic powder gives the ink its shiny, silver coloring. When you write with Silver Shadow™, the dyestuff colorant spreads and permeates into the paper. The metallic powder is thick and cannot spread or soak into the paper so it is left on the surface. This ink produces an “outline effect” when the dyestuff colorant spreads beyond the edges of the metallic powder. This is most noticeable after 2-3 minutes on papers that are white, uncoated, and fibrous.

DIY Ideas for Planners: Pt. 1
Sakura Of America - Logo

After months of browsing pretty planner blogs, I decided to buy my first planner. A planner can be a great way to stay organized, but it can also function as an art journal, a mini scrapbook, or a diary. You can customize and personalize in hundreds of ways. So I thought I’d make a series of videos that explore different DIY ideas for planners.
