Hey everyone! Elaineabella here and I’m back with the very first Marker Geek Monday of 2017! I know, we’re nearly at the end of January, where have I been? Well, a horrendous lingering cold and the craziness of the NEW RELEASE left me very little time or mojo! Thankfully I’m feeling better and the new release is of course now revealed and available to order. Since we have a new release, I thought I should probably give you some colouring tips and inspiration to go with it. Let’s get stuck in!
2 days of inspiration for the price of 1! LOL
I am SO sorry sistahs for missing last week’s Bellarific Friday. The release had a mind of it’s own and took over .. HOW MUCH FUN WAS THAT? hmmm?

And now for Christine!
‘Bonnie was getting ready for a night out with the love of her life. Now as Bonnie is a very modern girl – and believes in equality in all things – she’s decided to declare her love and give her heart to her man. Of course, for this occasion she had to wear THE RIGHT dress to impress him… and decided on her fabulous PINK party frock – finished off with the most wonderful bow in her hair – the pink would set off her complexion best! Then she had to have her glittered petticoat underneath her dress.. she wouldn’t feel right without some gorgeous sparkle. She decided to put a lush polka dot bow around her heart too. I hope her man appreciated all the effort she’d gone to when she told him of her undying love….. ‘
Stamp Used: Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Bonnie loves Bows (coordinating cut it out die set also available).
Christine has a way of making our stamps come to life.. in more ways than one ;).. I also see them as all having their own personalities etc… do you?
and now for the completed card
how could ANYONE say “NO” to Bonnie?

Today we have a treat. This is not a usual Bella style but it is a very special style designed by an extremely special artist. I have been an admirer of Danielle Donaldson’s work for about 3-4 years now.. Have been stalking her LOL (I know that shocks you) for us to work together. She was tied up in certain commitments and once those were over .. I WAS ALL OVER HER and wouldn’t take no for an answer! Danielle is one of the most brilliant water colorists around. Her style is ethereal.. dreamy.. I just can’t explain it. And her sense of humor? OVER THE TOP. You will love her. I have taken every one of Danielle’s classes at Jeanne Oliver’s site . Danielle is a wonderful teacher.. and her collage style and just her whole vibe is so awesome and cool. Trust da BELLA.
Here is a little bio on Danielle.. isn’t she adorable?
Artist Danielle Donaldson has walked a creative path for as long as she can remember. Her love of art began, as most young souls do, with a big box of crayons and a stack of coloring books. Over time, she focused her artistic efforts in watercolor and graphite drawing techniques and eventually received her degree in Graphic Design. Her love of fine art paired with her skills as a graphic designer have provided her with a an uncommon pairing of intuition and practicality. Her use of big color palettes and delicately drawn details allow her to spin the ordinary into imaginative and balanced compositions. She continues to grow as an artist by fully embracing the creative process in all she does and with each story she tells. She thoroughly enjoys sharing her process and imagination through online classes, in-person workshops, social media and in her book, creativeGIRL: Mixed Media Techniques for an artful life.
I am so so proud to have her with us!
I am stamping all of her stamps all over my planner.. depending on my moods.. on cards.. frames for gifts.. her words and her images are so dreamy. We have 10 in total.. and I can tell you we will be working a lot with them. Danielle even promised an online class on how she plays with them! WOOHOO.
Danielle’s first line with stamping bella are her SUPERHERO girls.. While they may not look like superheroes, you would be surprised at the powers they wield. Like REALLY surprised.
In every package of Danielle’s stamps there is a little story describing the exact powers that each of these girls have. Each of these have their own story.. LIKE WE DO. Funny how our lives can parallel a line of stamps 🙂 I told you .. I feel like my stamps are HUMAN.. and clearly so does Danielle :)..
I will show you one example of the little “note” that is included in the package.. the rest will be a cute little surprise that you can take and put in your planners to remind yourselves that you too can have these special powers. Ready? Here we go!
You will notice that ALL these images have been colored in by Danielle Donaldson herself 🙂
Danielle’s vision was to have a larger image.. a smaller one facing her and 2 sentiments.. both depicting a superpower and mood. Just like the stamps do. LOVE!
and here’s the little treat you will find in your package describing her powers :)… I like to call them “POWERCARDS”
Isn’t Danielle brilliant and hilarious like we all are? me thinks yes!
Now let’s see Sandiebella’s sample using almostella.. A frame! Honestly if I had this on my desk, I would stare at it all day and it would inspire me and just make me happy.. HINT HINT SANDIE! Copics, watercolors, paint.. whatever your preference, I think these stamps are awesome to try different techniques!
these girls are odd.. are whimsical.. I think they are at the same level of how I feel about unicorns LOL.. Magical!
Elaineabella has been busy coloring! Here’s Elaineabella’s AlmostELLA
and Elaineabella’s justmaisie
and Elaineabella’s everanne
Here’s Paulabella’s card using Mostlynaomi
and Elaineabella’s copic mostlynaomi
