Win a colouring tutorial DVD




Those of you not living in the UK will not have seen Nikky Hall of Polkadoodles demonstrate the use of ProMarkers on TV, so you will just have to take it from me that she is pretty fantastic. She has added to her store a brand new tutorial DVD to help you with your colouring skills. The principles would apply to any alcohol marker brand you may be using of course

She is giving away a DVD each week on this blog while the Promarker contest is on, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the next ones. All you have to do is pop over to Nikkys blog HERE and sign up to become a follower, then pop back here to leave your name under this post. I will draw a winner next Sunday. You can enter from anywhere in the world. You will find some great inspiration over there as well

For those of you who enjoy hopping around, go and see my latest post HERE on the Letraset blog on the new Winter limited edition markers, it's a bit lonely over there, I think you have all been to busy downloading the colour chart to stop by and see me! Here's one of the cards I made with the new markers, details on Letraset's blog 





Finally, here is a post my son put on Facebook, it raised quite a few laughs in this house - another Maxism!




Max was on a school trip today in Portsmouth to visit HMS Victory. This historic boat is where the Battle of Trafalgar was planned and where Nelson died. It was a productive trip: 

Ed: what did you learn today!?
Max: nothing. It was a day off learning
Ed: you must have learnt something
Max: Nelson had a hammock
Ed: you see, you learnt something
Max: Nelson stinks. I could smell his hammock. He was a stinky man.

Your card is lovely. I could sure use this DVD. I can't seem to get the hang of the markers. It just looks like a kid using magic markers and I can't get them to blend. I'm already a follower of Nicky.
