Using Marabu Art Crayons

I had so much fun with this color embossing technique, using Marabu Art Crayons and embossing plates. I love how the color moves when water is added. The results are playful and colorful and can be used so many different ways. I think the results would be great for card backgrounds, die-cutting, mixed media, collage, scrapbooking, and more.

Thank you to Marabu and Maker’s Movement for providing materials that were used in this post.

Dollar Tree Colored Pencils

Dollar Tree carries a lot of different craft products. The problem is that not all of them are worth purchasing. Check out my review of Metallic and Watercolor Pencils and find out if they are worth it. #Dollartree

Are they worth it?

Dollar Tree carries a variety of craft products. Sadly, not all of them are worth the dollar spent. But for the other products, it is really wonderful to be able to save and get a craft supply for a dollar. Besides food, I imagine craft products are a very popular category at the Dollar Tree.

The two packages of pencils I recently found are metallic pencils and watercolor pencils. In the video below I demonstrate using them and if they are worth the buy.
