I’ve been making videos but apparently not talking about them on the blog. For some reason, I keep forgetting to do so.
So the latest videos I’ve made had to do with creating background paper from peg stamps, and then creating five different cards using the background paper I made first.
It will be a super long video, but might be worth it for someone who wants to use patterned paper, but doesn’t know what to do with it once it’s made.
Then the nice people at Arteza sent me TwiMarkers, and I’m in love with them. I’ve tried blending with other water-based markers, but never was able to do so. I always ended up with one color and another beside it, but nothing blended in between. The only way I was able to get water markers to blend was if I scribbled them onto a palette and then used a paint brush and a small amount of water to allow the marker ink to blend. This time, using the TwiMarkers, the inks blended like they were alcohol markers, and I can’t tell you how much fun they are to use…I’m definitely going to play with them in more videos…And they are so much less expensive than alcohol markers, and that’s another big benefit..
