The Winter 2012 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine was filled with wintery, Christmasy ideas AND a fabulous tutorial on how to use Spectrum Noir Markers written by our beloved Christy Riopel. In this issue Christy walked you through a few basic techniques using Spectrum Noir markers and then demonstrated a real crazy technique using rubbing alcohol that I will share on another day! LOL! Sorry!!!!! Today I am sharing with you a layout Christy designed for the article demonstrating how to crete a Halo Effect with your Spectrum Noir markers or any alcohol based markers that you have on hand. Here is the stunning layout. Create a very subtle halo effect with your Spectrum Noir markers in a few very simple steps.  This very soft highlight really makes the photo on Christy’s layout pop from the page. Not to mention how incredibly stunning those poppies are! LOVE IT! Dust off…

Creating Watercolour Effects with Spectrum Aqua markers distributing by Canuck Crafts by Christy Riopel I love this quick layout that I put together. I used Spectrum Aqua Markers and Watercolour Cardstock, Clearsnap SurfaceZ Ink, Magenta stamps and Stencils. Using the Magenta stencil draw lines inside the openings of the stencil. Spray with water and lift off the stencil. This works so well because the Spectrum Aquas are a waterbased marker. I also used the markers on the edges of my photo matte I added these beautiful Magenta flower stamps using a permanent ink like Clearsnap SurfaceZ ink so that I can spray water over the top after I have coloured them in. It’s amazing how a little water can turn these markers into works of art. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Here is a cute little card Sue Sykes posted on her blog a while back!

Thank you so much to Canuck Crafts for all their support through out the years and for once again being one of our We couldn’t do it without you! MUCH LOVE!

Nothing is more exciting than new markers!!! I feel like a little kid. Canuck Crafts Spectrum Noir Markers has improved and revamped their alcohol markers. I love the little rubber grips and the bigger ink reservoir…. Yet they are still very reasonably priced. I used these markers to create this great background for my art journal page. I have to confess that I have never taken any formal training in colouring with alcohol markers… I will share my hack way of colouring. 1. I started by stamping this poppy from Stampendous in black Memento ink. 2. I choose 3-5 colours that are in a similar family…from a very light to very dark. I don’t really pay attention too closely to the numbers (though they are great for a beginner). I start by colouring the lightest part of the image with a light colour. 3. I…

Hello everyone – Kim Gowdy here on the blog today! I have a confession. I feel scrapbookers /card makers guilt because I was just NOT on the ball this year when it came to making Christmas cards. Not just making them, I couldn’t seem to get them mailed out either. Some years are just like that. For whatever reason; our time gets pulled away from us and used for other things. So I choose NOT to stress [too much] over this and thought I can still share homemade cards. This year I will send out homemade Thank You cards, for Christmas gifts received, and make a few Happy New Year cards to  those who REALLY should have gotten at least a store bought Christmas card! So I created this little card to send out after the holidays! Pretty simple card using 3 different stamps from Impression Obsession…how I love their…
