Color Therapy Blog Hop + Giveaway

Color Therapy Blog Hop GraphicWelcome to our Color Therapy Blog Hop!

Life can get stressful and many people find coloring to be the best therapy! This blog hop features projects from fantastic designers, all colored with our Artist Markers, Watercolor Brush Markers, Watercolor 36 Pan Set, Metallic Watercolors, or Ink Sprays!

Altenew is collaborating with the amazing Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker to inspire crafters to find joy through coloring. Kathy is celebrating her 14th “30 Day Coloring Challengeuntil the end of November 2019. Please participate in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge by coloring something, then share it on social media using the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. We hope you find “Me Time” and enjoy the benefits that coloring will give!

Kathy is insanely talented and I tried to channel my inner Kathy with this project (although I know my skills don't quite meet hers!). Some of the designers on the hop are sharing works-in-progress, which is what I have here:

DSC 0563 small DSC 0567 smallDSC 0565 smallMy preferred coloring medium is watercolor, but I went outside of my comfort zone this time by using Artist Markers. Would you believe I spent over 2 hours just coloring a flower and two leaves?! Is that because I'm still a bit of an alcohol marker newbie, or is that how long it takes for everyone?

The flower and leaves are from the Wispy Begonia Stamp Set, and I stamped them out with Permanent Black Ink so the lines wouldn't bleed. I plan on die-cutting these out and using them on a future project!


Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and Kathy from The Daily Maker is also giving away a 5”x7” original watercolor artwork (including a custom frame). Please leave a comment here on the Altenew Card Blog by 11/22/2019 for a chance to win.

We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 11/24/2019.

You are so talented. Your coloring with the alcohol markers is great! You don’t color like a newbie.
