Why not use your Chameleon pens to create a floral layout, that is exactly what Tracy has done with this keepsake memory page.

By Tracy McLennon

Tracey said “My inspiration for this layout were the pen colours themselves. Beautiful, bright springtime colours. Once I had them in my hands, they just wanted to become a gorgeous floral layout.”

New Design Team Announcement Continues

Our First New Design Team Member

A Drum Roll Please…as we announce our first new design team member….Jessica Sanders

Hello, My Creative Friends!  My name is Jessica Sanders of ColorMeCreativeArt.   I am super happy to be here with you, and the amazing Chameleon Team.

I live in Houston, Texas with my wonderful husband and four awesome kids, who are growing up so fast!  I am a full time artist/maker, blogger, and YouTuber.

I have been making art my whole life.  It began with paint-by-numbers with my dad, craft and painting projects with my grandmother, and progressed to variations such as painting my walls with faux finishes, painting with my children, making maps using computer software, mosaics, and finally to painting on canvas and art journaling .

My passion is exploring art, creativity, and art supplies, which is how I fell in love with Chameleon Pens!

I am so thankful to be a part of the Chameleon Design Team (my first design team! Yay!), and share my love of Chameleon Art Products with you.  Let’s explore together –for the sheer joy of creating!

Don’t forget to check out Jessica’s blog you will find lots of great Tutorials such as this one. Jessica will be back on Monday with her first project.

Time for a Giggle

We all need to have a giggle every now and again and with National Cartoonist Day happening this Friday we asked some of our team to come up with fun cards, Olesya has created a little laugh from nature with this cute scene.

By Olesya Kharkova

I am sure many of us can relate to this with a pet that has stolen something fresh baked off the counter..I only have to think back to a recent trip to Canada where my lovely friend Julia’s dog chose to gobble my freshly made popcorn when I wasn’t looking, all I could do was laugh after seeing the dogs guilty face!

Olesya said “When I saw these cute forest critters from Hero Arts set and the cookies from Lawn Fawn set I thought they should be together no matter what :)”  We think they are perfect together!

You can re-create Olesya’s Snack Time card  by downloading the step by step instructions here.

Our Last Friend Friday With Penny Black

Wow this month has flown by and our team have had so much fun playing with our Friends at Penny Black, their stamp and die collection are the perfect match for our art products!

Today Olesya shares inspiration using our pens and the new Chameleon Color Tone pencils.

By Olesya Kharkova

Olesya said “I love coloring and making cards with any type of flora. This die from Penny Black called Berries and Leaves is a perfect tool for me. I can color it to match any season, can die cut a bunch of leaves and make wreaths, the possibilities are endless.”

Wow this Leafy Greeting card design really pops against the black background, if you would like to see how Olesya created this card you can download the instructions here.

Olesya is also a self confessed cute addict and couldn’t resist creating a design from the Penny Black Bubbly Transparent set .

Olesya said “I’m a bag fan of Penny Black cat stamps. And it goes without saying that I’ve chosen a cat with the balloons for my card. Adorable little guy for a motivating card!”
