Being Yourself

The thing about Bank Holiday weekends is that the following week is shorter – which is good right? Of course it is! But it does mean that I’m thinking it is Wednesday when actually it is Thursday. Am I the only one? You guys can back me on this right?

As it is Thursday and I haven’t posted since Monday I thought I would drop in and post a very quick make from my Kuretake demo last weekend.

I’ve used the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin Watercolour markers for this one, I did a subtle background watercolour wash using a ZIG Watercolour System BrusH20 and then added the splatter effect by flicking the brush tip of the markers onto the card.

The sentiment is one to try and live by isn’t it? It comes from one of the SCACD Susana Loves Oddly Sweet Monster stamps – Monster Success.

Right, I need to get some more projects finished before Thursday turns into Friday.

Have a monster Thursday.
