July 31st, 2012Let’s Get Expressive with Sharpie (Giveaway)
Sharpie® Brush Tip marker
by J. DesRochers
School should be a place where everyone can express themselves freely – through their art, their projects and in their personal style.
Your child’s world can become their canvas with the simple flow of a brush- add colour to their day with the new Brush Tip Permanent Marker by Sharpie. Designed to colour on most surfaces the Brush Tip Marker is a simple way to paint new designs. From lush’s strokes to delicate shading, the Sharpie marker flows like a paint brush while drying quick and remaining vibrant like your other beloved Sharpie markers.
From the canvas to your coffee cup, child’s bedroom walls and their old white Converse; these markers freshen up Plane Jane in seconds. You can control the width of your lines with the pressure of your hand, simply layering colours to create the dramatic effect you want. The markers are water resistant and will not fade over time; if you’re unhappy with your design you simply expand your creative muse with extra bursts of colour. The art never ends with these Sharpie markers and your possibilities are endless.
Design your own graphic tees out of a simple white v-neck, or splash some colour on to your child’s binders; a simple way to show your true colours. Sharpie offers twelve colours for countless hours of endless personality.
Remember to take a second and sketch out your ideas. Good things come to those who wait, and the best work is produced when you get a feel for your new art tool. “Uncap what’s inside” and unleash your inner sharpie- the colour runs with in and you just have to Brush Tip it out!
We received received an assortment of Sharpie Brush Tip Markers and a coffee mug, so that we could create our very own original work of art (pictured above). What do you think? We found the markers to be so easy to work with and the colors vibrant. In fact, we are looking forward to creating more projects with these markers. Stained by Sharpie markers are available at office supply stores and mass merchandise stores across Canada, so check them out for yourself
