Hello Friends!

It’s been awhile! I’m been taking a short break from blogging due to my sister’s wedding. It was so much fun! It was good to reconnect with family and friends. Of course, all good things come to end…only to have other good things happen again! Such as this week’s blog tutorial.

I know many of us are planning those last minute summer vacations to soak up all of the glory of summer. With that in mind, this week’s blog tutorial is all about creating your very own luggage tag! This project is so simple, easy and can be easily customized! I choose to create these luggage tags with the Tombow Twin Tone markers. Since there are three different colour palettes, I decided to create a luggage tag for each palette.

Design 1: Tombow Twin Tone Bright Set

For this design, I really wanted a luggage tag that was funny and would make others laugh! For the first luggage tag design, I bused the Tombow Twin Tone bright marker set. I first started with drawing a cactus. I added other details such as flowers, thorns and a pot. The great thing about these markers is that there is both a bullet tip and fine tip to create details. Lastly, I added ‘Can’t touch this’ to the top of the tag. I did this with a faux calligraphy technique.

Design 2: Tombow Twin Tone Rainbow Set

For the second design, I used the Tombow Twin Tone rainbow set. I started by creating diagonal lines each 0.5 mm apart. I alternated between bullet and fine tip as well as ensuring to use colours in rainbow order. Then, I created a zig zag pattern between each space using the fine tip. Lastly, I used the Tombow Fudenosuke pen to letter ‘Bon Voyage’.

Design 3: Tombow Twin Tone Pastel Set

For the third design, I used the Tombow Twin Tone pastel set. I started by creating an outline of the first letter of my name, ‘U’. Next, using a faux calligraphy technique, I filled in the space using a gradient pattern. You will want to pick colours that blend well together. I created a shadow using the fine tip of a related colour. I finished off with asterisks in the space around the letter.
