Hello everyone – Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Fall is the time of year when I like to change up the home decor and add some new hand lettering projects to celebrate the season. I have been inspired by our resident colouring artist Betty Hung, who illustrates and colours like no one I have ever seen! So I decided to design a hand lettered Autumn-themed piece and use my Chameleon Pens products to colour it. I have used the Chameleon Color Tone pens before, but I haven’t used their Color Tones pencils…and this rainbow of pencils are just gorgeous in the box. There are 25 double-ended pencils, which adds up to 50 colours! For every hand lettered project, my first step is to sketch a design roughly with pencil. I have an 8 x 10″ frame for this piece, so I knew the measurements of the…

Hi Everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today, and I’m sharing a project I designed using Tombow products and the Brother ScanNCut machine. I love making inspirational signs and home décor pieces and thought I would brighten up my studio space with a rainbow. Of course, I knew I would use Tombow Dual Brush pens to create the rainbow because, well, Tombow pens come in every colour imaginable and more! I started by drawing the clouds on Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock with my Tombow drafting Mono pencil. And whenever I am using a pencil, I have one of Tombow’s erasers on hand. I just love this MONO Knock eraser that dispenses like a pen, so you have a fine tip eraser for lines. Then I traced over my pencil lines with the bullet nib end of the black Tombow Dual Brush pen. Now I was ready to cut out my clouds…and not…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with  a layout inspired by the monochromatic days of a northern Alberta winter.  I used black and white because that’s pretty much the only colours I see right now when I look outside.  Sigh.  But soon the days will get longer and it won’t be long before the snow melts and the grass turns green again.  Yes, I am an eternal optimist. I made myself a triangle template out of a scrap of paper and used it to cut the patterned paper and photos into large triangles which form the basis of the layout. The paper is the Uptown Fundamentals line from  Close to My Heart.  This paper (and other matching products) are a gorgeous and versatile black, white and gold colour and is available from the Annual Inspirations Catalogue from CTMH.  I used the Framework Alphabet Acrylic Stamps to stamp the title and the paper…

Hello everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share a couple of projects I made using Chameleon Pens! First is a card I coloured and demonstrated on Periscope last week.  You can click HERE to see the blog post with the video tutorial about this card. Did you know that Chameleon Pens has free downloads for colouring on their website PLUS Color Cards you can purchase? I have 2 sets… Flowers and Zen. These Color Cards are so helpful and have pre-made samples inside to show you how to color and shade with the pens. One tip I have is to use that Colorless Blender pen to help smooth the shading and color tones. So in the photo below, I add color gradations of purple to the tulip and then I blend with the Colorless Blender pen. Also, I do not leave the color tip in the chamber for too…

Today on our blog, Kerry Engel is sharing some beautiful watercolour effects on her scrapbook page using Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I love making my own embellishments. This layout began with a doodled flower that I created last summer. I actually have a stash of Tombow flowers just waiting for a story that needs telling (and embellishing). It’s so easy to make your own embellishments with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. In this layout I used the Tombows to create the following accents: 1. Journaling strips 2. Watercoloured flowers 3. Hand lettered title. Make your own customized journaling strips 1. Layer different colors of Tombow ink on watercolour or mixed media paper. 2. Wash with water to create an ombre, watercolour effect. 3. Let it dry then run it through a printer. The first time round I cut the paper into thin journaling strips. I thought my hand lettering was too…
