excitement my promarkers have arrived!


Well I decided after alot of deliberation that I would treat myself to some posh pens after reading so many blogs that say they colour in with copics and promarkers. I then found a promarkers challenge site and that helped me decide which to plump for , I asked hubby who spoils me rotten if I could buy some telling him they were quite expensive but not actually telling him the price and he said I could have some. I found the new colours on offer at Joanna Sheen and decide that I needed them along with the skin accents and tones and of course the greys and a blender. I was on my way, then I called into hobbycraft and they had some 5 sets on offer at £4-75 each so I got the brights and pastels, so I now have quite a few colours and when my pens arrived from Joanna Sheen I was delighted that the promarkers challenge was any colour any theme, how could I resist entering.They also wanted 3 shapes ,2 papers and 1 ribbon.
I set about deciding what to do.
 I found Mo's pencil had a challenge with a free download graphic for the colour Purple that set my colour, now for the layout.
Mojo monday had a fun sketch that had 3 shapes, circle, rectangle and squares the perfect set of ingredients. I then found a further challenge at Allsorts which was a theme of halloween so now I was set.
 I am quite pleased with the results and am so far impressed with my new pens but I will be stopping by the promarkers site tutorials so I can learn how to get the best frpm my new investment.
