Tres Jolie + InkyStamper 2023 Calendar

Hey, y’all! This week, I have a quickie project for you using the adorable 2023 Calendar Kit from InkyStamper that includes a stand made by Tres Jolie! How super is that! Small business supporting small business!

I kept my calendar rather simple, just enjoying the process of coloring in the pre-stamped images. It was a nice change of pace to just work with what I had and not have to do, what I like to call, “heavy thinkin’.” Since I am assuming that the use of Copic Markers will be touched on – and the example images on the 2023 InkyStamper Calendar Class Kit store page appear to be colored with marker – I decided to use some Workable Fixatif and my Distress Watercolor Pencils for my images. You can use whatever you want or have on hand though! Your kid’s crayons? Go for it! Colored pencils? Use them! You don’t need anything fancy or a “professional artist” brand or quality item to color these images!

I have a 15-ish minute video for you to go with my calendar, where I talk about the kit, using watercolor pencils, & why I love Workable Fixatif, make a mess trying to get my stand how I was picturing it in my head, and show the real-life inspiration for my September and October!


Easy-peasy, right? Except for me and my stand – that may have been more comical! Orange mediums EV-ER-Y-WHERE!!
