Fat Pony and the Greenhouse Effect Bleedthrumanade #Bleedthrumanade #Zentangle #Clairefontaine


For those of you new to my blog, I have a saying, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.  When color bleeds through the page, make bleedthrumanade!”

When you use alcohol markers or other very wet media, the color often ends up soaking through the paper and coloring the back of the page as well as the front.  I decided this was an opportunity rather than a problem.

I colored a page, in this case with Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers.  As expected, there was almost as much color on the back of the paper as on the front.  Then I took a Fudenosuke brush pen and made Zentangle-Inspired art on the front…

…then turned the page over, and did an entirely different drawing on the back, using the color that had bled through.  Bleedthrumanade!  No sour lemons here!

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
