Good Morning Everyone!
Well, the sun is finally shining in my little part of the world!
Doesn’t it,always, just make you feel better?
I have just returned from a few days, spent at the beach, with the family…
We managed to have the most fabulous weather, a little chilly but, gorgeous clear blue skies and lots of fresh air, it surely does blow the cobwebs away!
Of course, today, I must climb the laundry mountain! (boo, hiss)
But, whilst I was away, I got to thinking of the lovely Sugar Nellie rubber, that I really have to blow the cobwebs off.
I have so many little rubber babies, and have had so little time to play with them just lately, as things with my family have been a little hectic.
Feeling a little more energised than I have of late, I have been trying to improve my colouring techniques using online tutorials.
My favourite colouring medium, of late, has been using Distress Inks ( I like using a paintbrush) and these have been a learning process….finding the right paper to use, the best brushes and then the technique itself but, my favourite technique video has to be this one from Annie Rose
Next on my ‘things to do’ list is releasing the full potential of my Prismacolour pencils, again, there are so many different things to get right first, the paper, which pencils, which blending mediums etc….
My mission for today has become to follow the ‘Colouring Steel on Kraft’ tutorial, which just looks amazing to me!
So, I hope I have inspired you to drag out your colouring mediums and get crafting?
If so, please feel free to show us your creations, either, on our Facebook page and in The Sugar Bowl….there’s fabulous prizes to be won!
Enjoy your weekend…..
