Just A Bit Of A Sharing

Well look at that! It is Thursday all ready. I thought I would share a couple of things today, apologies for not having any finished items to show but how about some news and a work in progress?

I was having a bit of a play this week with my ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens, as you guys know they are one of my favourite items in my colour medium tool box. The ZIG Art and Graphics have a brush tip and a bullet tip, in case you haven't seen them - you can check them out in detail on my review post from last year.

I wanted to see if I could draw something with the bullet point tip of the pen, I have to admit I do use the brush end more so this was a bit of a challenge to myself to see what I could come up with.


Usually when I use watercolours I do draw the image in pencil first so drawing it with the bullet tip of the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens was an interesting change and I would do it again, so I shall carry on experimenting with this technique and would love to know if any of you guys have tried it?

Extreme close up:


I love the textures you can get with Watercolour, so random and interesting.

Anyway, whilst I'm still on the subject of Kuretake just to let you know that I will be at West Worthing Hobbycraft this weekend for a demo in the new store. Hope to see you there Saturday 24th from 10am to 4pm!

Oh and just to let you know I'm going to be on telly! Yikes! I've got a show for Kuretake coming up on Create and Craft - 28th November 11am (Time is now 1pm not 11am). So set your recorders...I'm not nervous, not nervous - keep telling myself that and I might believe it! I hope you have been watching the lovely Dee Paramour and her shows?

Ok so final bit of catch-up news, some of you have spotted it already but I was one of those folks shortlisted / runner-up in the latest round of the Craft Stamper Stamper of Year competition! 


Totally pleased as punch! 

Thank you so much those of you who have been sending me congrats - you are lovely.

Ok, so I best get on and finish some stuff.

Hope you all have a lovely creative Thursday.

EDIT: The Create and Craft show has been changed to 1pm 28th November instead of 11am
