Strathmore Blue

12 Comments

Strathmore has a relatively new paper out and they call it Toned Blue Mixed Media. It comes in various sizes and I just grabbed up a pad recently. Let me show you what I did!

Nothing fancy. Just a little tangling with a blue micron and a grey Copic multiliner. Highlighting was done with some inexpensive colored pencils. A fast and easy piece to check out this awesome blueish-grey paper. I need to try some wet media next. So much fun! For tangles I used printemps, caracole, bolt petal, kuke and cirquital.

  1. Your “nothing fancy” is gorgeous!!
    That paper is a wonderful hue of blue and your tangles and shading are beautiful!

  2. Alice, hope it is OK, but I pinned this one to my Zentangle on Pinterest? So lovely, and I love blue and will look for this paper. Must be really new?

    • yes, patsy, all my photos are fine for Pinterest. in fact, if you hover on the photo the little Pinterest button is set to pop up 🙂

  3. Looks very interesting – shall keep an eye out for that, can imagine it will be wonderful with wax-based pencils like Prismacolor or Coloursoft. The grey Printemps is ever so effective in the centre.

    • yes, I think it would work very well with those. I’d love to see what you do <3

  4. I’m really into blue this year, thanks for posting this
    Ps I just want you to know I appreciate your daily posts and you Brighton up my inbox!
