Friend Friday with Arc Crafts

ArcChameleon graphic

Welcome to everyone visiting today, we are so excited to be sharing Friend Friday over the next three weeks with Arc Crafts, a division of ARC Paper. As Chameleon pens are permanent markers they are the perfect match to Arc wood products and with their unique ability to get multiple tones from a single pen, it is possible to get beautiful blends on their wood paper easily.

Arc Crafts products are so versatile and easy to use that you will want to use them on all your projects! ARC is the home to BARC Wood, a sheer veneer sheet that is actual wood! It comes in 2 different shades and is offered in sheets, tape rolls and larger rolls all with an adhesive backing. You can print on it, stamp it, stain it, die cut, whatever! Treat it just like paper. You can find their full product range here

Our designers have had great fun creating with both these products, first up is Monica, with this great wood frame.


By Monica Maldarella

Can you believe Monica created this design by using only 3 Chameleon pens, Bark, Fawn and Hot Cocoa, you can buy Chameleon pens here. Monica talks about her inspiration she said “coloring with Chameleon pens on the wood is really amazing. They remind me of the pyrographer drawings, and I really like the rustic effects of the colors on wood (just using three colors!)”.

Cathy has created a pen holder by recycling the reels from the Barc Wood tape.

    Monica’s wood frame is beautiful.
    I would love to have that frame at my house.
    The recycled can is so pretty.
    I usually try to “dress up” anything that
    I recycle for use in my craft room.
    Love this one – I’ll be using it for my
    next recycle project.
    thanks for sharing.

    I really like the pencil holder. Hopefully, the directions will give information about the bark wood tape reels since I have no idea what that is – or else suggest alternatives.
