What a numpty head I can be....I totally forgot to upload my blog post for Monday. Mind you hubby has gone away today for a few weeks working in the Arctic (rather him than me as I prefer the heat to the 'freeze your cods off' cold) so I have got an excuse for being late.
Anyway I got my Zigs out to watercolour this little card with some of the birdies from Winnie and Walter's 'So Tweet' stamp set.
I have found that using the right watercolour paper with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers does make a difference. At first when I got them I tried them out on some watercolour card I had from WH Smith and they didn't blend very well at all but I didn't want to spend a fortune on card and eventually found that the Bockingford Aquarelle (NOT) watercolour card by St Cuthberts Mill works really well. I bought it from my local art shop but you can buy it from Jackson's Art here.
I even ventured really scarily into using a 'Manual' setting on my camera just to see if I could take a better picture using natural daylight. I think it turned out ok for my first attempt away from 'Auto' so I shall keep experimenting!!
With my hubby away I shall be spending longer in my craft room....happy face!! :-)
