|Handmade Distress Ink Tower|
|Holds 20 Distress Inks or a combination of Distress Inks and Blending tool thingies!|
Now.....before you even see the video or before I even get to explain what this tutorial is all about, there will be a few things my sister will be doing straight away.....just from reading the title......
First......she'll be all giddy and excited when she realises I'm doing a tutorial with me talking.....which will lead to the second thing she'll do....
Secondly.....She'll quickly jump onto Facebook to one of our cousins facebook page....Jessica (Hi Jess) and she may even text her too. She'll tell Jess to "Hurry up and get over to Lee's Blog......She's doing a real tutorial with her silly talking and everything!!!"
"Why would these 2 things happen?", I hear you ask, scratching your little noggins. My sister, Tara and our cousin Jess were sitting last summer discussing the fact that I had a new blog and that I was thinking about doing some Youtube video tutorials too. Now, for some reason unknown to me......of course....ahem, these two loving relatives of mine thought not only me having a blog as funny but they thought me doing any kind of live tutorial would be absolutely hilarious! I know! The cheek of the little Monkeys......I don't know where they get these crazy ideas from......do you? heehee
Anywhoodles, enough of the lack of moral support from my very cheeky sister and cousin......on to the tutorial eh? Heehee. Nah....theyre all right really......they are as daft as me so I'm very proud to say they are a part of my gene pool, lol.
I wanted something to store my distress inks in but wanted something that was going to take up as little desk space as possible as I have a teeny wee craft room. I decided to make a Distress Ink Tower as going up was a better alternative to going out where lack of storage space was an issue. So I made a tower out of chipboard and decorative papers. I made my first one nearly 2 years ago now......My word I didn't think I was crafting that long but its nearly 2 years now! But as the tower only holds 20 inks and I was at the Craft Show on Thursday, well I'm sure you can put 2 and 2 together and know that I bought more Distress Inks at the show. So I have now exceeded the 20 inks mark and needed to make another tower. Now I am sure there are better tutorials out there for storage of distress inks, but this is how I made mine. Here's the tutorial, any questions just give me a shout.
DONT FORGET....IF THE ADVERT APPEARS, PRESS THE WEE "X" AT THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF THE ADD TO GET RID OF IT. Enjoy.
PART ONE .....sit back and have a cuppa.....this may take a while!
See! I have no idea what those two cheeky monkeys were on about. That was a perfectly fine example of a completely sane Northern Ireland woman doing a nice wee tutorial on how to make a box! And at no time was I giggling and completely amused by my complete lack of annunciation of words such as "Flower" or "Tower", lol. I even slowed down my talking for these tutorials.....not that you'd ever know as everyone from here speaks like the world is about to end in 10 seconds and we have a 100 page speech to finish reading out before the timer hits zero, lol.
Well thats another bit of daftness over for today.....and look the day has only begun! I'm sure I'll have much more daftness in store for the day ahead.....isn't Scrubby a lucky man?!
