Hello Friends!

I'm back & for my first post  I am excited to share some projects that I made in honor of :
                                         " 100 DAYS OF TOMBOW ".

ATLANTA – July 15, 2013 – For its centennial year, Tombow created the “100 Days of Tombow” program designed to promote and support arts education and quality art programs nationwide by showcasing the talents of crafters throughout North America and providing an in kind gift valued at up to $10,000 of Tombow art products to the Council for Arts Education, a national nonprofit promoting and supporting arts education. 

The kind folks at TOMBOW sent me some terrific Tombow goodies to work with and it was so much fun to craft for such a great cause. I can't think of a better reason to craft then to contribute to special causes. The range is vast from creating for family to creating for fundraising, awareness & contributions. It's all part of a great movement where crafting has certainly made a difference. 
That being said- 
*Every submission for the “100 Days of Tombow” blogging program will result in a $100.00 product donation to the Council for Arts Education.*

Could it get any sweeter? 

Without further ado, here are my creations:


This display tray has a binder clip mechanism by Tim Holtz in the center that will hold lots of 4x6 photos. The bride & groom squares will hold a picture of my daughter & son in law separately on wedding day & then the center square with the "B" monogram will hold a photo of the 2 of them after taking their vows. I am gifting this to my daughter's in laws. I'm still waiting on the wedding pics to arrive so they are not in there yet but I hope after explaining it you get a better idea of how this display piece will work.

 I used several Tombow adhesives including the : Stamp Runner Adhesive , Tombow Permanent Mono Multi Glue & Tombow Power Tabs (very strong stuff). 


                        HOME DECOR  TABLE DISPLAY

Using Tombow's incredible IROJITEN colored pencils in the deep tones I created the display above.  The pencils come in the gorgeous box below and in the richest warm tones. This color family would be  fantastic for all your fall projects. 



Aren't they "Tombow Tweet"?
(I know...cheesy but I could not resist)

Using the Tombow-Groovy Collection of colored markers I was able to make those adorable mini canvases. The markers are so vibrant & as you can see they really pop! It made coloring my stamped images so simple. The ink on these markers is sumptuous and really gives off a nice stamped impression.  I definitely plan on getting all the color families.

                   So there you have it friends! 

My time spent creating with Tombow products was delightful. They have superior products that really perform well. It was my first time using their IROJITEN colored pencil collection and the Craft Markers. I can tell you now it won't be the last!

                     Thank you Tombow!

I hope you all follow Tombow's blog & their journey of 100 Days of Tombow. They really care for the crafting community & BEYOND.  One need look no further then this event to see how important it is to Tombow to take time to create, share & help make the world a better place one pretty art piece at a time. Whether it be coloring with their pencils, inking up with their markers or gluing with their adhesives- they know the true value of art lies in being able to create it. If you have the products then your imagination can carry you the rest of the way. By their contribution, they are providing the product and the recipients will make the magic that is ART!
