Play Day♥

Today was is my 48th Birthday!
and what did I do?

Whatever I wanted, which was nothing but play.

I spent most of my morning and afternoon searching through , a dear friend of mine gave me a gift card to purchase whatever I wanted.....well....I had to make sure I chose wisely, as well as daringly....

I purchased a Joanne Fink "zenspirations" book
Sakura "Glaze" Gel pens
and Prisma color blending pencils.
There were so many wonderful things I could of ordered, unfortunately not all things are shipped to Canada...but I had a great time looking at all the new and wonderful things out there for creating......I have created a "wish list" on there now though...that is a great idea, I tend to forget what I'd like to try next....

Once the "confirm order" button was pushed, I got to playing.
I started just by doodling with the flower, then added some  Prisma coloured pencils, tried a little marker addition (i wasn't too successful with that).... then I was brave and added a watercolour background.....
I used the markers that I shouldn't have, they are not waterproof...

I'm quite happy with this one...even if it is a little wrinkly....
