Making friends with colour again! (Zig brush pens)

Hello All! So, the creative muse was being a tad elusive. I figured why not try to make friends with colour again, and I might have gotten some of these bad boys to that end:

Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens set

They are so much fun, but with so many shades to choose from...

I wasn't sure where to start, so I spent some time getting comfy with 'em:

 (in other words, spent days making colour swatches and plastic pocket thingies with the fuse tool...)

and cutting out little name tags for my new friends (all 80 of them!):

Ever find yourself wondering at which point crafty organization becomes creative procrastination? ;)

Happy creating!

P.S. If you have the Zig Clean Color real brush pens as well you might find this Pinterest search a good source of inspiration:

Hi, Mel! Good to see you posting again! I have a set of 12 Zig brush markers and I love them! I am a bit envious of your organization; my studio always looks like a tornado went thru, no matter what I do when it comes to organizing stuff!

Oh yes! Organize crafty items is always very good for my mojo... :)
Your desk is a joy for the eyes with all these colours!

So nice to read a post from you...

love this - it is like eye candy to me - I love to sort everything by colour and this is so clean and neat looking - so great to have an 'at a glance' system. It is always important to the creative process in my book to have a great starting point - and procrastinating to become this organised is no bad thing.... ooh - it looks so good!!!

Hope you are doing well -
