HI there Happy Monday.


I know most people really don’t like Mondays …But I do a new week with things to do and new challenge’s all good fun in life’s rich tapestry. The weekend kind of came and went in a bit of a blur. I was really hoping against hope that I could have gone to the Great Craft Extravagansa at Stoneleigh in the Midlands I used to live not far from there in Coventry and miss the friends there an awful lot xxx Anyway I digress. The trip to the Midlands this weekend wasn’t to be so we passed it catching up with jobs that needed to be done ….and talking about NEW challenge’s I have bought from Hobby Art some of the most Beautiful Pencils the new Spectrum Noir ones. Oh they are lovely so soft and smooth to use with no lines hardly at all and the lines I did have I was able to smooth out with my finger by gently rubbing and blending …..I am a fan. So I started to play a bit more. Added water to see what effect I would get….I was pleased with the result Lovely for water colouring what do you think I used Sketchy Flowers by Anna Flanders which is a favourite of mine I heat embossed in Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing powder, then 3 pencils all from the primary colour Spectrum Noir Set Red Green and Yellow and the sentiment is from the Friends Sentiments set and a few sticky foam pads I hope you like it xxx

About Bernie Simmons

Hi Everyone. I am Bernie Simmons Proud member of the Hobby Art Design Team, I have been crafting for many years but started scrapbooking when I had my boys, James is now nearly 23 and Rory 19. It was while working out at Rory's school on day I was tacked to clean out an art cupboard...out fell stamps inks and brushes.....I was hooked. Love to craft and alter anything and I'm never happier then when I am either out with my two boy's walking our five Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs or covered in ink! I hope you like my makes and what I do.
