SOS 389: Make Your Mark

The latest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is being hosted by Chris, and she's encouraging crafters far and wide to MAKE THEIR MARK! You got it: use markers!

Here's my little lovey project:

Man, oh, man, do I love pens! 


  • The gold geometric heart is from a DCWV pad bought a couple years back at Tuesday Morning.  It is watercolor paper, and I usually like to use powdered pigments on it.   
  • Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers!  So, in the interest of shopping my stash, I thought I'd use the markers.  I was addicted to them in spring and summer,  but it's been months since I've really played with them.   Yum!  Missed them!  I used three colors here. 
  • Jane Davenport waterbrushes used to blend the Mermaid Markers.
  • Finetec Gold watercolors to accent the words.
Here is a little heart box that was from the same DCWV pad, colored the same way:

I hope you get to go find your marker box and join us for some fun! 

See you at Shopping Our Stash, and while you're there,  please visit my teammates-- such a talented group I'm part of!
