Raining Strawberries

{In love with my Promarkers more and more}

Raining all night and day
I love the rain, laying in bed and listening to the rain can be so peaceful, the smell of rain can be so refreshing, puddles outside can bring you back to your childhood and no wasps around. Ah how I love the rain.

Well Done to my mum. She has done so well on her weight loss, she looks fantastic and most importantly she feels and acts more confident. She decided to do it on her own and a great job she is doing! We are so proud of her! She hasn't been to see the doctors in awhile and has an appointment tomorrow, I don't think they will recognise her.
I really wanted to make her something to let her know how amazing she is and to congratulate her. I rummaged around my crafting stash but couldn't quite get it right. So went off to read some more blogs and see what others were up to. When it came to me. I was sat at my PC with my bowl of Strawberries and BINGO! That was it!
My gorgeous Summer Goodness papers by Raspberry Road Designs sat in the draw itching to be used, would work perfectly with Stella Strawberry Stamp; who I adore colouring in, not even that, I was sure I had some strawberry charms somewhere among my charm collection.
I really love the effects created with Promarkers, so much so I have way too many! I don't usually shade so much as never thought I could get the effect everyone else does. But I grabbed a mixture of colours and experimented and this was my first attempt and went with it. It turned out better than I had imaged, using 9 colours and it not look patchy at all. I am really enjoying using my Promarkers so much more now and can't wait to sit down and have another play with them!
