Crayola Marker Watercoloring - Tips & Techniques!

Hello crafty friends! Katelyn here with a preliminary video sharing you tips and tricks to use Crayola markers for watercoloring! Now, I'll tell you right now that this video had a few hiccups during filming, but there's a lot of great information in there! So, let's dive in to some tips and tricks!

There's a fun technique that is on trend currently that involves using Crayola markers. I know that almost everyone has had Crayola markers in their house at some point. Now is the time to dig them out! In my video this month, I am sharing some general examples and ideas on how to use the markers to color in images.

Now that peaked my interested since I do a TON of digis and am so tired of fussy cutting them out.
 Now, I did purchase this by accident, I thought I was getting the Cricut Explore with dual cartridges, but when I clicked purchase, I realized it was too good of a buy and the order went thru.  I did have a $50 credit and with this being on sale for $149.99 at Cricut.com, it was just at $100.  Here is my machine (these are stock images from the Cricut site).
