Letraset Promarker Hair Colouring and Highlights Video

Thanks to everyone who's visited my YouTube channel so far, whether it be via the link in Facebook, from the Letraset Blog or from my own blog post.  Your time is really appreciated and I hope I've inspired at least one person to give the distressed denim effect a go.

I've uploaded another video to show you how I do my 'light hair' & hair colouring techniques - I'll show you how I achieve a Ginger and a Red haired effect to my stamps.

You can find this new video on my YouTube channel by clicking the video below.

They're only quick videos, so no major attention span needed (less watching waffle = more time to craft!) I've tried to help by putting my colours on the screen as I use them so you can pause, play and follow at your own pace.

Thanks for joining me.

Letraset Promarker distressed jeans video

I recently had my friend, the lovely Kirsty Wiseman to stay for the weekend and we had a bit of a colouring session late one night as I was getting samples ready for my Letraset Promarker demonstration on 20th August, and she asked me to make a video on the colour combination I use and my method of producing distressed jeans (because she was rather impressed, if I may say so myself!)

Armed with hubby's mobile phone and some peace and quiet this afternoon, we finally got round to producing a little video for you.  Please bear in mind this is the first video I've ever done and uploaded to YouTube, so be nice, won't you?

Hope you like the video and can take away a little something for yourself to help you in your colouring.  Now I've broken my duck (so to speak) in the world of videos and YouTube, I may just do another soon.

Thanks for watching.


New tripod

I'm doing a bit of a happy dance here right now as I've been after a new tripod for my camera since the cast off that my hubby gave me when he bought a new one for himself a few years broke during my recent photography course at Burghley House.

Imagine how pleased I was when my hubby told me that he'd won one on Ebay for me and it was the model legs and head that he had originally chosen for me.

Namely a set of Manfrotto 190XPROB legs

And a 496RC2 Manfrotto head

Not to mention that he's just bagged it at £100.00 off the RRP and it's in mint condition too.  He THINKS he's going to keep it until Christmas before I can have it..... oh how little he knows (death wish comes to mind!) LOL.

I'm off to hunt for a bag to keep it in now.... hello Ebay!

Thanks Will.  Love you loads.

Promarker samples

I recently shared with you my news that I'll be demonstrating for Letraset next month and I've made up some sample/demo boards to show just how wonderful Promarkers are along with colour combinations that I use.

These are my favourite hair colour combinations. All use 3 tones; dark, medium and light and utilise the Blender Pen and a little white opaque pen to finish them off.  You can click on each image to enlarge and see just what I mean.

Which is your favourite girl?  If you have a go using my colour combinations, please come back and leave me a comment on your opinions.

Thank you Mr Elston

Freya's had a fantastic teacher for year 5, and to say thank you to him for the wonderful inspiration, care and dedication to his class, we bought him a rather nice bottle of red wine.  Me being me, couldn't just give it away with the bog standard label on now, could I?  So I tarted, tweaked and fancied it up and this is the result.  What do you think?

All papers are from my colour scrap packs and the letters are cut on the Sizzix Big Shot using Tim Holtz dies.

I'm still alive!

I know I've been such a terrible Blogger recently, haven't I?  Well, life, family and work just gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it?

I've also been busy preparing some samples for a demonstration I'll be doing for Letraset next month. (I know!!! I'm buzzing with the thrill and excitement of being chosen to demonstrate for such a fantastic company!!!!!!)

I've been busy colouring with both Promarkers

 and Aquamarkers
Sticking things with Letratac

and embellishing others with Safmat

 Using both Letraset Bleedproof Paper

and also some lovely watercolour cardstock.

If you are anywhere near Pink Tulip Creations in Studley, Warwickshire on Saturday 20th August between 10am and 5pm, then please pop along, say hello and offer your support.

See you there!
