I’ve got a super quick post with a heads-up presale today! No major new tutorial video but there’s a short that might be of help:
CCC release: Anita Jeram’s latest
Preorder sale, 4 days only
Pre-sale for 4 days only. Shop from the release for those 4 days only until the stamps and dies are fully stocked in two-ish weeks. At the end of the four days the items will be removed from the website until they are in stock.Pre-orders get free shipping (or international shipping of $12) — all 4 days. You’ll receive your order in 1-2 weeks.If you wait until everything’s in stock in 2 weeks, you cover your own shipping.
While you’re visiting my blog…
If you’re new to my blog – WELCOME! And if you’ve been away a while, GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN!
I have two quick things I want to invite you to do:
1. Join Artventure and check out the “Let’s draw together” initiative! Whether you like to draw, hate to draw, or just fear it — I hope to make it a way to join the community as we learn together.
2. Add yourself to the newsletter list below – I send out a Saturday newsletter with all the info about tutorials from the week, some flashbacks, sale info, BTS peeks and more.
A couple common questions I get when posting colored pencil work:
Favorite paper for pencil coloring? Stonehenge.
How do you get those long points? With an Afmat Long Point Pencil Sharpener.
Preferred colored pencils? My go to of late are Prismacolor pencils.
Why don’t the black stamp lines show in your art? I like to do “implied line” (sometimes called no-line in crafting) artwork. I stamp the images with a light ink, then color right up to that edge so the lines disappear. I have plenty of freedom to change things up – like with the trees in the short video, they can be any shape since the pencil covers the lines.

Tomorrow – my palette and yours!
My video coming out tomorrow is about curating your own watercolor palette. I’ll show you what’s in mine, with all it’s scary changes for 2024, and maybe convince you that YOU also need to curate your own! Bookmark the blog or wait for the newsletter in the morning. OR if you’re an IG addict, go to my page and join my free “Create every day” broadcast channel – basically a giant DM where I can drop links to my tutorials etc!
