Loose Florals: My favourite thing to do. I feel that there is no wrong way to do these. here is an example. 

Color Blending: Start by selecting a few complementary colors from your marker collection. Experiment with blending them together on paper to create smooth transitions and gradients. Try layering different hues to achieve unique effects and depth in your artwork. Blend from light to dark or vice versa to add dimension to your creations. 

Mixed Media Collage: Incorporate other materials like magazine cutouts, tissue paper, or fabric scraps with your marker drawings to create mixed media collages. Use markers to outline shapes, add details, or enhance textures within your collage. The combination of markers and various materials adds visual interest and complexity to your artwork.
