Finally!!! It is that time of the year again and I can present my 2023 ART BY MARLENE ADVENT CALENDAR. This years Advent Calendar is really something special. The idea was born after a brainstorm session I had at the Creativeworld in Germany, with my friend Milagros and Studio Light owner, Sander. Together with the help of my righthand, Geanne(graphic designer that does all of the ABM packaging and technical things) we finally managed to get it JUST RIGHT!!

I am so proud of this amazing ADVENT CALENDAR.

This amazing calendar is perfect for mixed media artists, artjournalers, cardmakers, scrapbookers, bible journalers, planner girls, bullet journalers and diy’ers.

It is a STENCIL ADDICTS ONLY CALENDAR that includes a ART BY MARLENE collectors item metal tin, 24 unique design envelopes and 24 unique stencils.

The size is perfect, the packaging is sturdy and made to be re-used, the designs are one of a kind ltd edition and can be used all year long as it is not themed.

What is even better is that we are doing a year long challenge with the ABM ADVENT CALENDAR. This challenge will take place in the safety of our private community on facebook called the ART BY MARLENE CREATIVES. Join us there.

For those of you still in doubt, you can always view the video I created on my own youtube channel, where I tell you more about the Advent Calendar and the products that has been released to accompany this gorgeous calendar. I do not reveal all content, I show you 4 different stencils that are included.

Together with this fabulous Calendar, I also launched 2 additional products.

The ART BY MARLENE blending brushes and craft tape.

There are ideal to use with the Advent.

The craft tape is great to use when securing your stencils in place, masking off specific areas or creating a border. The packaging includes 3 rolls of tape containing 20 meters per roll. The tape varies in width. The packaging includes a 1cm, 1,5cm and a 2cm roll.

I even created a video for you to see how you can create your own decorative washi tape with the craft tape. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

To use those lovely colored inks through your stencils, I am bringing you the ART BY MARLENE blending brushes. The packaging includes 4 different size soft blending brushes in a high quality.

However, when using your acrylic paints through stencils, I always recommend that you use the fabulous ART BY MARLENE Artist Sponges. These fabulous re-usable sponges comes in a pack of 48 sponges, containing 4 different color sponges(12 per color).

When using stencils you can use pens, pencils, markers, mediums, acrylic paints and inks. If you like to create a ‘looser’ or a more organic stencil imprint ….try using watercolors with your stencils. It will guarantee a artistic result every time.

Thank you for being a ART BY MARLENE supporter.

Kind regards
