On the Creative Scrapbooker magazine blog last week I shared a scrapbook layout using the Chameleon Pens and Coloring Cards as part of my design, which is based on the Creative Scrapbooker April Sketch.

@kellycreates @csmscrapbooker @chameleonpens #coloring #adultcoloring #scrapbooking #layout #handletteringThese Coloring Cards are from the Zen pack, and there are 3 other sets of Coloring Cards: Flowers, Nature and Tattoos.

The Chameleon Pen set comes with a Colorless Blender pen and a Detail black pen that has 2 ends with 2 sizes of nibs.  I used this black Detail pen to hand letter my title and write my journaling.

    Hello Kelly! I love this post and I love your video! Have you tried these Chameleon Pens also for brush lettering? Or are they more for coloring? Sunny greetings!!

      Hello Mirjana! The Chameleon Pens don’t really have a suitable brush nib for brush lettering. But they are fun to use otherwise! Take care!
