"Inspiring and honoring creativity"

Blog Hop with Guest Designer Anna Wight June 13, 2014



Welcome to the Blog Hop with our talented guest Designer Anna Wight! If you just came from Jennie’s Blog you are on the right path! If not, you may want to start at the Tombow blog!


For this blog I am going to show you a technique that uses both the Dual Brush Pens and Irojiten Colored Pencils. These two colorful products play well together and you get the benefit of quick color blocking with the markers and simple shading to create beautiful images with the colored pencils. This is a perfect project if you are a beginner to coloring your stamped images or Zentangle inspired drawings! Here I have started with a simple flower design filled with tangles drawn with the Mono Twin Permanent Pen.


Next, use light colored Dual Brush Pens and the brush tip to simply fill in the main areas with color. Don’t worry about blending colors! Let these colors dry a few minutes before the next step.  The markers used here are: 703, 991, 603, 553, 126 and 195

Here are some more colorful examples using this technique! Quick color coverage provided with Light hues of the Dual Brush Pens, then controlled, easy shading using the Irojiten Colored Pencils!
