Spectrum Noir Pens - It is love!!!!!

Recently I purchased some Spectrum Noir Pens. It was not an easy decision as I have tried Copic colouring in the past and hated it!!! It was just all too fiddly and it seemed like I neaded thousands of pens to  get the right combinations. And it seemed to take like 6 pens to get one thing shaded correctly. So it was with great trepidation that I forked over the cash.

I know I have probably offended the Copic lovers out there by now and suspect they have stopped reading and left. That is not my intention, but what I have found a lot in the craft community is that there are certain things that can divide us. And one of them is the dang colouring pens.....

Anyway I opened the packets with glee and thought wow these don't look so confusing after all. And after a couple of hours of practising and mixing colours I think I had the hang of it.

I had people telling me to go here and look there and watch this and that, but I can be stubborn at times, and I just ignored all of it....LOL. I watched one YouTube video and then was off.

This is a sneak peak of what I achieved. I can't show you the whole thing as it is for a challenge that hasn't been released yet. But I was really chuffed with my first time effort. And it only took an afternoon. What do you think?? But don't look too closely... I am only learning...LOL

Thanks for popping  by today.

There is lots of chipboard on this layout - the heading, flags, arrows, hearts, tree and birdie.  I even tried something new and used gesso and a template to add a bit of texture. But boy am I impatient waiting for that stuff to dry...lol

I hope you play along with this challenge. Everyone has some chipboard somewhere right?

Happy Father's Day

Today in Australia we celebrate the Father's in our world. So I thought it apt to do a layout featuring the Father of my children, my gorgeous husband.





I hope that all the Father's have a wonderful day and are as spoilt as they deserve to be.  My poor hubby is working today so we will have a belated celebration tonight. And my own Father lives in another state, so he will be getting a phone call today.

Happy Father's Day.
Cheers,
Narelle
