It's always a very exciting day when Altenew releases a new set of markers. I'm a huge fan of the Artist Markers and today we are introducing two new sets, which means 6 new color families and 24 new colors! Also, in addition, we have brand new coloring sheets! Had a lot of fun coloring some of the pages and I'm definitely going to be turning a couple of them into cards.

My new favorite color from this release is Pink Pearl- I love pinks and this shade was just perfect!

Last but not least, I wanted to give you a quick peek into my craft room and show you where I store my markers. I have recently bought this organizer and I absolutely love it. As might have been able to see in the photo below, I don't store my markers by set or color family, instead, I store them by color groups- All yellows together, all reds/pinks together, and so on.

It made more sense to me to keep them like that but, if I ever what to know which color belongs to which set, I just simply refer back to my color swatches. Altenew has a great Artist Alcohol Markers Color Swatch PDF available for download which will help you keep track of all of your colors. You can check it out HERE.

Hope you liked this release ask much as I did and also enjoyed taking a peek into my craft room. Let me know if you would like to see more in the future!

$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 02/16/2022 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 02/18/2022.

  9. Beautiful blush quartet. I have an ink pad called pink pearl that was part of a 4 pack. I wonder if the marker colors all match the ink cube colors.
