a peek @ a post...

I've said lots of times that I'm a
V E R Y S L O W
creator...
it drives me nuts some days...

but the photo below was finished in 10 minutes or less!
it couldn't be easier...

seriously...

here's a peek @ a simple card...
I'll be back next week with the whole scoop...



if you want to be ready...

the secret ingredients are:

honestly, when I heard about the paper, I thought...
OK...that's nice...
paper is paper...
bring on the markers...

I was WRONG!!!

I guarantee...
use this paper once & you'll be hooked...

the surface is AMAZING & smooth...
it's a dream to stamp on...
it holds up really well to lots of techniques...
and works well with every Ranger product!

I just ordered 300 sheets for classes...
YES, I do LOVE IT!

other KEY ingredients...


these are NOT your ordinary markers...
they have a VERY unique feature...
no surprise there...

my favorite use is to ink stamps with them...

some Glossy Accents ...

and a stamp...

I used my fish...

some archival inks...
I used jet black for the saying & olive & aquamarine for this background &

I LOVE the new water brushes too...
if you want just one...
I've used it lots already & just ordered a boatload for classes...

you can use any backgrounds,
depending on the main image you choose...

the main ingredients are the markers & the specialty stamping paper...

and like I said...
the whole scoop next week...

we're up to our ears in signing & shipping books!

THANKS SO MUCH for your support...
our little PO appreciates it too...

today Friday, is the last day to get a free *something* included with your book order...

the ordering info is on the previous post...

ok...get your supplies ready...
have a GREAT weekend...

and then we can...

make art!

I'm am a professional snail too - know how you feel and it drives me totally bonkers too - I'm a tweakaholic and have even got out of bed in the middle of the night just to look at a button... - but learning to accept that's how I work most of the time! Mr. Fishy is looking rather dishy!

It's nice to know I'm not alone with the pace I work at. I too find it extremely frustrating too ! I LOVE your fish, the colours are so vibrant and gorgeous. Markers are on my wish list. Sue C x

Jean said...

so cool! Can't wait for my distress markers to get here! I've heard I will have to wait perhaps another month, everyone is ready to try them out, will be exciting to see more ideas on using them (hint)while we wait.
