Claire C I've made a canvas using one of Nikky's gorgeous new images 'Octavia thinking' coloured of course with my Graph'It markers. I printed her on to printable canvas and then stuck this to my canvas  once I'd coloured her. I also used my Graph'Its to add some interest to the background. I created a stencilled background using PanPastels and  stencilled leaves with Maimeri Iridescent Medium and the polkadots around the edges of the canvas and coloured them with my Graph'its, they look lovely and shimmery in real life. You can find all the details on my blog.....

Nikky....Hello!! This week rather than make a card for you I've made a tutorial video - now this is split down into 4 series of videos which I will release weekly for you to help you practice practice practice! In these videos I share the colour choices and lots of hints and tips so whether you're just starting with Graph'It or been using them for a while hopefully you will find something useful along the way. 
So let's get to it! Week One is Skin!....


Wow!! What fantastic makes we have this week and some of those colour combo's are just terrific!! Hope you enjoyed the video too - make sure you pop back next week where Nikky will then share the video for the Hair!
