I Don’t Usually …..

Picture 010c copy

Hi peeps and I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Apparently there is a heatwave but it isn't that obvious here at the mo, but it may be on it's way :)

There’s a few ‘I don’t usually-s’ about this today as -

I don’t usually post anything at the weekend…

I don’t usually use Pro Markers (well not recently, even though I used to use them all the time)  …

I don’t usually distress the edges let alone ink them up  …

I don’t usually use Sarah Kay images (again I haven’t for a looong time) and …

I don’t usually put mag stuff on here.

But  I was just tinkering about with the pens while I was getting ready for a Pro Marker class that I did at the weekend and had some stuff I had lying about and this is what I did so I thought I’d share this with you today.  It’s literally made with left over bits  and bobs I had on me desk – apart from the blingy and distressing bits!!!

IRL the colours are lovely and clean looking but they don’t look as nice in the edit, doh :(

I found these blingy bits while I was rooting about so I stuck one in the middle of a white organza bow…...

… and added a couple more to this little arrangement made with some Wild Orchid Crafts blooms – I just used  sweetheart blossoms and hip rosebuds.

You don’t always needs a florist shop full of blooms to make it look pretty I don't think, even though I do usually get a bit carried away once I start with them :).

I was sent a distressing tool a while ago to use for a commission and I got it out to have a fiddle with again. It’s a nifty little number and it makes very light work of sanding and roughing up the edges. It’s called a d-stress and it’s FAB :)

I know I don’t usually put mag stuff on here but I’ve included part of the article as it has the deets …

So on that distressing note lol,  I’ll be off and I’ll see you in the week.

Enjoy your Sunday and hugs to all xxx
