Hi there everyone.. well Wednesday almost over here and have been flat strap today, so late for posting for me.. for WOYWW or What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday over at Julia's, Queen of Deskland... see here!
Desk 1.. last night left midstream working out what base to put on this serviette card for an order.. for a change! Like the soft pink so that's put to one side.
Desk 2. I had ordered some of the makeup brushes like the "you-beaut" ones reviewed on you tube, etc. The branded ones are $50 here in Oz. Every review I've read says they're identical to make up brushes that've been available for years, so ordered some. Mine didn't take long to arrive yesterday, here doing a very quick test run.
One thing they do need is tapping off, used here with Distress inks. They've a very soft blending action. I tried on same cardstock the Inkylicious brushes. These are easier, I think to use, cos cover bigger area. But if you zoom in their blending is grainy. I'd need to blend it heaps more to get rid of the graininess. It would improve, but loads more work. Once I'm used to make up brushes they'll be great. Love the small sizes too as they'll be great for stencil work. For those unfamiliar with them here is a video. Loved that seller had them in purple, main colour in my craft room. BTW the makeup brushes cost Au$15.65 (£7.50, or $US10). A snippets card😊 below.. upcycled last year's card!
It's one of two cards from the one card, DP background and Unity Itty Bitty stamp with SU labels. Next lot of images were because yours truly had a birthday some time last month .. so these are my home made ones received. I was spoilt.
