Homemade Diary for my Shinhan Twin Touch Markers
















I made a mini diary album for to keep a record for all my "marker mixes" - which colors to use for hair, skin, jeans, boots, trees, etc. I generally use 3 or more colors when blending. It is just easier to keep a record instead of figuring it out every time - although that does create some pretty neat discoveries.

The photos loaded backwards, from open to the front cover! I haven't decorated the cover yet but it is a cute, sturdy little book. I used glossy Collage Pauge and it is a strong seal and hold up very well.

Happy New Year! May 2011 be the best EVER!

Love my Shinhan Twin Touch Markers


I have been doodling a bit with my Twin Touch alcohol markers. They are great, colors are transparent so they can be blended together. Colors are vibrant and they are much more reasonably priced than Copics but on the same quality level, in my opinion.


Black hair seems to be the most difficult so I have been practicing and I am happy with how this girl turned out. I love the vibrant colors so I made a calendar with the verse Eze 34:26.

Couple more cards

This card is much prettier in person. The mountain is hand cut, the trees are cut on the Cricut. I used my Shinhan Twin Touch markers, a Copic marker and an old Design alcohol marker (very smelly - ick) to color the trees, mountain, shadow the snow and also the starry background paper was the wrong color, a middy light blue. Did work well so I colored it with a Touch marker and now it's just right! I love my Shinhan Touch markers, no odor, affordable, beautiful colors, high quality and very blendable. I used pop up adhesives so this card is dimensional and the sparkly snow is white glittered embossing.

This is Pioneer Peak, the mountain behind my house. Love it :)





This easel card is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. The headband and flowers are glittered with Stickles and the girl is an Anya from The Greeting Farm
