Altenew helps refresh your watercolor Brush Markers.

Altenew Blog Hop Giveaway

Hi Hollowers!

Welcome if you are joining from Therese Calvird’s blog! While we are driving the long haul back from New York City to Ohio we have a fab Altenew blog hop to share.  Altenew is releasing their new range of Watercolor brush refills today!

I shared lots of ways to use their watercolor brush markers awhile back…  if you missed it you can check out that post here.  Today – I am going to share lots of unique ways to use the refills outside of their intended purpose.  I am all about stretching your supplies and getting more bang for your crafty buck! Plus you might be surprised how some of your kitchen items can be used for neat effects in your crafting! Let’s take a look at the finished cards…

Altenew provided me with supplies for today video but all opinions and projects are my own

I find it amazing all those cards were made using the same medium but yet look so different! They are all easy makes too.

I made the backgrounds and then each card took less than 10 minutes to assemble.  They are perfect for any level of crafter!

Let’s take a look at the Altenew tutorial…

I hope you learn a lot in today’s video and enjoyed these new takes with the brush marker refills.  They are super easy to use and so versatile.  All the ideas from my last post can also be used with the refills as well.

Below is a complete list of supplies used in the post. (affiliate links may be used at no cost to you), I have also included some fo the marker bundles which include great savings!
