Dorso Crayons

Well this is my last post for 2016 . What a year it has been. Lots of great people have died but let's not forget those that have died who are not celebrities. May they rest in peace. 
2016 has been a roller coaster year  for me moving to Spain. We have now experienced a winter and a very very hot summer. I've enjoyed living in Spain  it's been a learning curve , 
Crafting in Spain is very different as acquiring materials are much harder and very expensive. Luckily friends and family bring me items with them when they visit. 
We are hosting a party New Year's Eve so that should be fun, so my next post will be 2017.
I'm still in love with parchment craft and I feel I'm improving slowly. 
My parchment teacher Brenda Oldham introduced me to dorso crayons , and yes you have probably guessed I love them. 
You apply the crayon to the back of your work and use essential oil to blend the color . For finer detail you use cut and dry nibs. Here's a couple of cards I've made . I need lots more practice but I'm enjoying the journey. 
I love doing white work and especially enjoyed completing the green card. Anyway have a Happy Crafty New Year . Love and hugs Julie xx
