Experimental

Be prepared to be shocked - it's shocked me!

I bought and second hand collage book from a lovely lady on a forum I belong to.

It took me completely out of my comfort zone.

Here is the first 'exercise'.

I used 'things I had to hand' and these were three flourescent marker pens, and a black one!

The exercise said to use glitter - yikes - I don't do 'glitter' either, but after a long rummage I found some which I got for my grandson - he likes bright colours and glitter.

On the Cardmaking Paradise Forum they had a link to a video that showed someone drawing Zetti borders.
Sadly this is nothing like the talented lady achieved - but it's my first attempt so I am happy with it - but whether I will be in the morning I don't know!

It's great to just play isn't it!

Well judging by your lovely comments - it certainly did the trick and shocked you!

I am working on some more  today - along the same theme but more subdued!
