Oh Tombow! How do we love thee?  Let us count the ways! It was a party in the Tombow booth, lots of colour and LOTS of gorgeous products! Along with the popular brush lettering trend, Tombow Dual Brush Pens are blendable colours that are lovely for watercolour too. The rainbow of markers and pencils are so pretty!

The Chameleon Pens booth is a colourful experience. With the adult colouring book craze in full swing, Chameleon Pens are trending. For those of you unfamiliar with Chameleon pens, they are alcohol based pens, each one producing varying tones of the same colour.

They are also sold as singles and 5 pen sets, plus nibs and…

Chameleon Pens and Colouring Books! By Karen Ellis Okay, it’s official.   I am stating for the record that I, Karen Ellis, love to colour! I have jumped on the adult colouring book band wagon and have come to appreciate the zen time it offers.   Combine those books and Chameleon Pens…  Oh yes!!   I’m in heaven. If you haven’t tried Chameleon Pens yet, I invite you to do so.   They are alcohol based pens (like Copic and Spectrum Noir) which allows great blend ability, but what makes these pens special is the built in charger that allows you to change the saturation of the pen ink while colouring.  Brilliant!  Instant highlights, gradation, and shadowing!

Anything that takes time is not my style. (Patience, much?) Instead, I’ll stamp several images on some white cardstock and colour while watching one of my favourite shows. And let’s get serious… January is unofficially “camp out and watch TV” month. So, how did I do it? These are Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities markers. They are alcohol based and come in sets of three, which includes a light, medium and dark shade. They have them in packs of three because it takes all the guesswork out of how to blend and shade. There is a knack to colouring and blending but my rule of thumb is always – colour what looks “right” to you. You can think about the light source and…
