Hello and Happy Friday!  Welcome to Day One of the My Mind's Eye and Tombow Blog Hop!  All weekend long, the My Mind's Eye Design Team and Tombow Design Team will be sharing projects and inspiration, so be sure to stop by each day for new ideas.

MONO Multi Liquid Glue
Irojiten Colored Pencils Dictionary Volume 8


To be eligible to win, please comment on each of the designers projects  and don't forget to "Like" My Mind’s Eye on Facebook Page and "Like" the Tombow Facebook Page. If you don’t have a Facebook, still comment on the projects and Tombow will select someone to win a prize just for playing!

Commenting for your chance to win this blog hop prize will end March 30th  at Midnight EST! We will announce the Winner on March 31st   via our Social Media outlets! PLEASE Remember to LINK all of the products that you use from Both Companies.

Here's a little bit of inspiration I created, using Chalk Studio II and Record It!, All Things Chalk collections from My Mind's Eye, and Irojiten Color Pencil Set in Fluorescent, from Tombow. 


I love the bright, vibrant shade of the fluorescent pencils, but I didn't want my paper and embellishments to clash with the neon colors, so I used several elements from the Chalk Studio collection.  This was a match made in heaven.


To 'pull' in more color, I colored several chipboard and patterned papers from the collection.  What a great way to customize your stash!



So next time you want to use a bit of bright, vibrant color on a project, but don't want it to overpower your photo's or embellishments, use black and white coordinating products.  

Be sure to hop on along for a chance to win the prize package shown above!
