ADDING DECOR AND HAND LETTERING1
I decided to make it simple and still with ballpoint pens. Its not necessary to frame the landscape because the whiteness of the paper surrounding it, is a way to make it more attractive.
I find it fun to make landscape with colored ballpens. Normally we have more control when having a pen in our hand compared to a brush with watercolor, oil or acrylic. This is what I think.
The variety of mediums available in art is a facilitator for us. So if one is not at ease for e.g with water color or pencil, then may be he or she will be very comfortable with ballpens.
In my country, ballpen art is still unknown may be to most people. Most people have never ever imagine the "miracle" which can be realised with a cheap medium like ballpen which is available everywhere.
What has happened is that may be people think that a beautiful and advanced art work is only that which is made with expensive tools and high quality paper, canvas etc. However, you can also make an advanced artwork on a simple A4 paper and with a simple pen.
