I have just spent about 15 minutes trying to upload a photo of a birthday card I made my daughter. It keeps appearing sideways, and I CANNOT figure out how to turn it. (Blogger, you make things clear as MUD!)
So until I sort that out, I will tell you that I recently went to a class featuring Animal Spirit stamps, which remind me a little of those Doodle Art posters that were popular when I was a young 'un, only much, much smaller. And while I love them, they are so beautiful, what really impressed me was the Tim Holtz Distress Markers we got to play and colour with.
Now when those markers were announced, I thought, "Oh great, here we go again, another way for me to spend money". I mean, really. How many different sets of markers do I need? I already have Copics, water colour pencils, and Le Plume markers, plus various other specialty pens like Spica; as well there are the paints, stains, mists..... REALLY - do I need more implements to apply colour to paper?
And the answer is YES. After 5 minutes I was in love. After 10 I was trying to figure out how I was going to justify to my darling husband that I needed to have these markers.
I'm going to work on that plan while I try to figure out why my photos are all appearing sideways.
Until next time....
UPDATE: Somehow this photo got onto the post the right way round. This is actually the inside of the card. The paper is G45's Once Upon a Springtime. If I can get the other pictures turned around, I'll post them next time.
Don't you just love technology?!?
