I received Your Sharpie Style in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
As far back as I can remember, doodling has been my go-to. It doesn’t matter where, if I have a pen, pencil and a piece of paper, I’m doodling. My favorite, however, is Sharpies. They are a great marker, as Deborah Green will tell you. In fact, she wrote Your Sharpie Style to share her love of the Sharpie.
The book features 75 new projects that appeal to all age groups. Fun projects like decorating a pair of sneakers to making a one-of-a-kind tote bag. there are homewares and accessories from upcycled cups and saucers to sneaker and bangles. It’s all inspiration to get those Sharpies flowing.
There is still the adult coloring book trend, so why not share one about doodling. It’s a fun book that appeals to the adult crafter, but also my tween beginner crafters. Crafting is a way to unwind, de-stress and escape.
The book is quite comprehensive. Green begins the book with the basic techniques and an overview of the various Sharpies in the market. There is a guide to how each of these Sharpies looks on different mediums. Green shares the details from permanent marker to paint pen and bleach pen. In addition to Sharpies, some of the projects may also require paint pens and other crafting items. The projects include variations to add even more designs to your Sharpie-style repertoire.
Each project includes tips. Most of the projects are self-explanatory and can easily be inspirational guides. It all makes for a project that will be a success.
Every design is universal and interchangeable and the reader is encouraged to try them out on different mediums. The only essential tool is the marker in all our pencil cups, the Sharpie!
