Sketchbook Sunday // Crystal Studies

Hi friends! Today’s video is a bit shorter than a typical sketchbook Sunday, in fact I only worked on this for about 35 minutes before my eye strain got the best of me and I decided to give the old peepers a rest.


Rest is good, it’s hard to take a break when you are enjoying the art but be sure to take care of yourself as well. Speaking of that we are having a fairly warm (40F) sunny day and I think I will go out for a walk. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday as well!

More Rainbow-y Goodness!

Howdy folks! It is really starting to feel like Spring! I can see the grass on the lawn now and I have to mop the floors every night…well, er… I SHOULD mop the floors every night due to the mud. Yay, before we know it it will be Spring!

I was in the mood to play with color. I had a box of clear crystal acrylic hearts from Papermart and I decided to color them with alcohol ink. It worked great! Here is a quick video to show you how:

Now, that method is est if you want to color a bunch of things at once but you can also color one of those crystals with a permanent marker after you adhere it to a card. That is quick and easy too. You can use this technique on any non-porous supply (metal, plastic, glass etc.) so buy bulk supplies in white and clear and alter them! It’s fun! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
