Just Whizzing By

Urgh this weather is totally wretched… Totally! Anyhooo as I sit here listening to All Angels I thought I would blog my latest creation. I coloured up this Teddy Bo Image with Ranger Distress Pens..    It’s a little thank you to a little boy who gave me a little pot of hyacinths for Christmas.. 



This is a close up if you hadn’t gathered already LOL!! I am not sure about those little gemy thingy’s I got from The Ribbon Girl..  And let me tell you The Ribbon Girl has a fantastic service.  I ordered one day and received the next.. Lovely jubbly..

Anyhooo I want to have a quick chatty about distress markers and what I think of mine.. Like a mini review.  Ok I like them and I don't like them.

I don't like them because;
I’m heavy handed and they kill the paper when I am blending
The nibs get all weird and lumpy I am always pulling fibres from the tips
The fine tip is too fine
The colours are hard to work out

I like them because;
One pen can produce an array of different shades
You can blend them wet or dry
You can get nice lines
There are lots of colours to play with
They are permanent until you wet them
The colours can be really vibrant.

Here is what I am working on.  (Using Promarkers <3) It’s Saturated Canary challenge you know all top secret stuff lol… Gosh that’s a huge smudge there on the shoe PAH!


Well today I am proud of myself in a totally different way than being crafty.  My proud moment for today is that for 5 days I have blogged, and for 5 days I have shared things with people who I don’t know and would like to get to know.  My proud moment is getting myself out there and stop being shy or doubtful that my work is terrible and no one would really want to see it.  So that’s what I am proud of getting involved..

What are you proud of today?
