Just a bit of old paint


Well that week went rather fast...........

Well I completed my first card from the course 52 card Pick up.  Totally out of my comfort zone working on such a small space.  I wasn't going to blog the result as I feel I need to improve my skills for this course dramatically.  Then I stopped and thought about it for a while and you know it is all about the journey as Tim says. It felt good to push myself and I hope to complete the outstanding ones by March so that I have caught up before the next set are released.  But  1 down only 51 to go.

 So without further ado.

On the right is what it would have looked like before I got my hands on it.
The next lot all covered ready for me to start messing about with

All my paints arrived this week.The Distress paints are so amazing to work with and I am a happy bunny that I treated myself to the whole set at once.   Also the Crackle paints arrived that I won on Scrap 365 blog hop  and they are a welcome addition to my little world of crafting.

Oh My lord
Look at the marbling on these little beauties

Also cannot leave out my little play with Pan Pastels, loving them very much.

Just fab colours
Thanks for stopping by Tuck Towers, would love you to leave a comment. 

Until the next time.
