Happy Woyww everyone,
Here is my space this week, I decluttered it up a little just by putting my all of the stuff I had out and put it where it belonged.  Now my space looks sparse but I do like it this way when I start painting or I will knock it over or wear it lol.
So I'm still on a making act's. I  have a them all set up to trade for Woyww #9 . I mailed off two already and am going to mail out to Julia for those that live close to her. So if you would like one let me know and I will pop them in the post.

Thanks for popping in 
Hugs Nikki

WOYWW and Need some Lovin to WIn !!


Here's my space today and I need your help again if you would be so kind as to go like my little Pastel this time over at Facebook Like it or Love it and of course I'll pick a random person to win this picture again . Last winner was Amanda Willard she left a like so the space scene went to her . This challenge is more about Water so I thought to check out a you tube video and this is what I came up with it's 6 by 4.5 inches so will mail it anywhere. This has been sealed over a couple times I was Getting chalk everywhere nothing says artist then it all over your hands and face lol.
(If I get a lot of Likes and Loves and manage to get in the top 3 I'll Be giving this away too)
So space got tided up a bit seeing the DH was saying it's looking really cluttered and your stuff hasn't been all put away for a while which was true. Art Supplies can collect quickly around us and then you tuck them all away and your amazed at all the spare space you have so I have 10 ATC's done for the swap so far Going to make a few more to send to Julia if I can too.
So I need Sarah Brennan and My Name is Cindy Snail Mail so I can post one out to you.

ChalkOla Markers & a Discount code

Have you heard about these Markers ??
These are a non toxic chalk marker that have some really bold and bright colours to play with and if you use a non porous surface they wipe off super easy. Now the set I'm playing with today is
16 Pack 10 chalk markers with a bonus + 6 Metallic markers.  In Canada get buy them from Amazon there is a discount at the end of this.
So let me show you what they can do I grabbed a sheet of glass and went to town on it and thought it would be fun to try a bold little picture. I went for a jelly fish and coloured it up and also used a paint brush with a little water on it to blend the chalks together and they are water based so they just blend like watercolours.  I did colour both sides of the glass to get this effect. The 1st picture is me showing how it all looks done the 2nd is me seeing how easy it cleans up window cleaner and it gone so now I have a clean sheet of glass to make something else up.
Warning about working on glass, the markers will rub off super easy on your
 hands so always hold it by the edges unless you want colourful hands. 

Next I made a little coffee sign up on the glass this time I used the metallic colours to create all the stars they sparkle just right. The picture does not do them justice that's for sure 

Here are all the colours on a black glossy paper they really pop and you can still see the black one too
Once dry these don't rub off like the glass at all but this surface is porous so it's fine I just wanted to show how bold and beautiful these colours are against black.
Let me show you an ATC I created using the markers with some water to create this background on Watercolour paper and it worked out really great might look a little messy but that's what I was looking for using water with these really takes them up a notch and allows you to blend them and also add a little transparently to them which adds so much depth. Turned out Pretty.

Even better here is a discount for all the Chalkola Products too . Can you say SWEET!!

More about the Chalk Markers -> https://www.chalkola.com

the Product:


The Markers are used on Non Porous Surfaces only (So its best to test a small area). Like - Chalkboards, Whiteboards, Glass, Plastic, Windows. 


reason being that Porus surfaces have small holes that can absorb the liquid chalk ink and sometimes it gets difficult to completely erase them.


markers can be used on Chalkboard paint but many customers have found it difficult to erase them as paint usually makes the surface porous and absorbs chalk ink. In case they do not erase - you can either repaint or use magic eraser.


Chalk markers as a medium have high density Chalk Ink, due to which new markers take 2 to 3 mins prep time – Once used the ink flows smoothly.

Thanks all for reading
My Review and may you grab a set to enjoy.

Hugs Nikki
The product was given to me to test out but all of this review is my own opinion.
