Exciting news, worldwide launch of Spectrum Noir Aqua samples at CHA 2015.

Hello to everyone.  Crafter's Companion are launching a new water-based marker - Spectrum Aqua at the CHA.  I was so delighted to be asked to provide some samples for the launch and to use the fabulous new markers. 

You can view the marker launch on Create and Craft on Sunday at 3pm.  

Watercolour is a relatively new technique for me and I am learning as I go.    
These new markers make it all so easy.  Colour straight from the marker or blend your colours on a palette or block.  I am hooked on watercolour.

Spectrum Aqua Markers used:
Peach, Blossom, Jasmine, Yellow, Sunflower,
