I can blend...

This is my first attempt at using Tombow and Close to My Heart Markers along with a Tombow Colorless Blender to color in an image. I think I like this new (new for me) way of coloring. I’ve had these Colorless Blenders for over a year and have never attempted to try to use them… I actually forgot that I had them until I was going through my marker container. The Colorless Blender came with each set of Tombow Makers I purchased.

I’ve been admiring Jennifer’s (Thimbles, Bobbins, Paper & Ink) and Michelle’s (Mommy Time) coloring techniques for awhile now. Jennifer uses water to blend her Tombows and Michelle uses a blender pen with her markers. I have tried using a waterbrush and I couldn’t get it to work that great… I made a huge mess!

I’m keeping this post short. Riley got her braces put on today and I have to help her with her first flossing… I have a feeling it’s going to take a while! Thanks for reading ~ Jovi
