Hi there the weather improved so we made it to Chinatown to see the celebrations for Chinese New Year. I nearly came home with less children than I went with. Gosh do they go crazy when a dragon or a lion appear in the street. It was crazy they were falling on top of my toddler in the buggy. I nearly lost two more as they got cut off from me. No one moved an inch to help me push my buggy through, each to their own came to mind. Still it was fun to see and we got a close up view of one dragon only I got claustrophobic so didn't stay ages.
I made it to Cass arts which sells packs of 5 promarkers for under a fiver and I picked up 20 sheets of Bristol board for £3.95 so it was not all bad.
This is my entry for the totally papercrafts challenge which this week wants us to incorporate spots into our projects. I have used my new Sweet Pea stamps again. I am totally addicted and needed to play again. I used prismas with sansador, promarkers and sakura stardust to colour in my image. I used a black promarker to fill in the white bits around the image I love this effect. I used phoebe papers from the digital range at Basic Grey. I resized them to 13 by 13 cm. I made some circles to compliment the image and I added a flower. I also used a cuttlebug embossing folder on some black card to create some dots which I coloured with sakura pens.
