Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. I’m excited about We R Memory Keepers new Basic Tool releases, so I paired two of my favorites for a layout – the Square Guide and the Marker Airbrush:
Inspired by the circle templates built into the square guide, I decided to create an airbrushed background for my layout.
Using four markers in different fall shades, I airbrushed directly into the circles in the Square Guide onto my cardstock.
The Square Guide is easy to wipe clean, so I didn’t mind getting marker ink all over it. In fact, I used permanent markers for another project and was able to use a Mr. Clean eraser to easily get all the ink off the tool.
As I started working on the rest of my page, my 3-year-old daughter – who had carefully watched the whole process thus far – borrowed the Marker Airbrush and made her own picture. It’s such an easy tool to use!
I journaled with my Typecast, then embellished with fussy-cut leaves and flowers.
I loved that I was able to create a quickie mixed-media layout with these basic tools, and I’m especially glad I was able to match the exact colors in my photos by using markers to airbrush instead of hunting down just the right patterned paper. If you’re looking for some easy to use, great basics to add to your crafting arsenal, I strongly encourage you to pick up the Square Guide and the Marker Airbrush!
