If you haven’t noticed, I’m not the most visually creative person out there (hence why I always say I don’t take great photos and I don’t produce cool crafts!). I’m not sure why that is – my mother and my aunts are all tremendously creative. Luckily, while the creativity gene seems to have skipped my generation, the girls love to do crafts and make beautiful things. For that reason, I think they’d really enjoy Stained by Sharpie markers!
Self expression is all about demonstrating personality and feelings through creative activity. People crave individuality and often express it through their style and clothing. Let’s face it… self expression is fun! Even though I’m not very creative, I do remember as a teen getting a plain pencilcase so that I could write and draw all over it. I loved the fact that it was obviously mine and that it expressed who I was!
In the last few years, there has been a new trend that Sharpie has noticed. Their markers are being used more and more for self-expression and Sharpie users have shared pictures of their colourful creations and used social media to show off their work. So now, the new Stained by Sharpie marker brings self-expression to a whole new level – on new surfaces and in new ways. These new fabric markers feature a fade-resistant ink developed for optimal performance on most fabric surfaces.
The Stained by Sharpie markers are available in eight vivid colours The versatile brush tip creates both thick and thin lines, has the ability to shade for a graffiti look and provides the ultimate in creative precision. The brightly coloured ink is AP-certified non-toxic and resists fading on most fabrics during normal wash cycles. Simply machine wash the marked fabric and hang it to dry for best results.
Miss Eight was the epitome of glee when she saw the Stained by Sharpie markers and even more excited when I explained that she could use them to draw and decorate on fabric! She decided to design a hat with enthusiasm, really giving it her personal stamp!
Miss Eight has already talked to Grandma (who is very crafty in her own right) and has made plans to take her Stained by Sharpie markers over to do some tshirt design with Grandma!
Stained by Sharpie markers are available at Staples, Walmart, Real Canadian Superstores and wherever writing instruments are sold. The markers are available individually and in 4 and 8 packs with prices ranging from $1.99 to $15.99 depending on the package.
