Markers are prefect for Creative Lettering and can be used on cards, layouts, in Art and Bullet Journals. “Happy” is written by using twin-tip alcohol-based markers.
Another way to use markers is to color letters so they fit your project better. I have used alcohol-based markers for coloring letters made of cork.
Markers can also be used for making shadows. I put my card under a lamp to see where the letters cast shadow and then I used a grey colored marker to draw the shadows.
On this card you can see how the markers were used for coloring the letters in “Happy”, for drawing the shadows from the letters, for coloring the hearts made of chipboard and also for coloring die cuts of flowers, leaves and a butterfly.
