Repurpose: Celebrate your artwork with a beautiful calendar!

Make it a beautiful year!

Are you ready for 2019?

Oh my goodness, I’m soooo not ready yet. The hussle bussle of the holiday season is just about to begin, so the last thing I want to think about is the new year. But actually, now is a great time to plan ahead, before we get to the point where you can’t think straight…

Do your shadows look fake?

Depth & Dimension are buzz words in the Copic Marker and colored pencil communities. Everyone wants more depth, we all want more dimension.

What we’re really saying is that we want to color with greater realism. And in our wildest dreams, we want people to mistake our coloring for a photograph…

Are your walls full?

Looking for new ways to celebrate and display your coloring projects and Copic Marker artwork?

In Vanilla Arts classes, we tend to color large projects. Larger images are full of wide open spaces just waiting for you to add lots of beautiful color, texture, and realism.

But that larger size means they take up a lot more space on your bulletin board…

I’ve got a brand new video out this morning, a coloring demonstration with Copic Markers, Staedtler Triplus Pens, and Prismacolor Soft Core Colored Pencils.

It was a darling stamp until I got ahold of it with my creepy coloring!

This is “New Heights” by Santoro London Gorjuss. This cling stamp comes in two different sizes, I’m using the large version so that I can add lots of fun details.

I’ve stamped it onto XPress It Blending Card using Memento’s London Fog gray ink.

I really love XPress It and highly recommend it for beginners! XPI prevents a lot of blending problems by allowing the inks to stay wet longer. The longer your inks stay wet, the better the blends!
