  2. Starting from any corner begin to cover your page with colour and images.
  3. NOTE: Use ZIP brush to remove excess powder and keep in blending pot or on a scrap of paper. This will keep you work clean at all times.
  4. Using the Versa Mark stamp pad, stamp your stamps onto the page and colour in using one or more of the tones selected.Use the dauber to highlight the image and your finger to colour the background.
  5. Use the ruler and a colour of your choice to draw lines with the applicator. Make them just the width of the applicator. We used a number of different colours and drew the lines 8cm long and close together. Draw liines both vertically and horizontally.
  6. Again, using the ruler, the applicator and matching colour, draw a grid using only one colour.
  7. Take the Versa Marker pen to put dots in alternate squares you have made in the grid. Colour using the same colour as you drew the grid.
  8. Use the Versa Marker pen to draw scribble patterns onto a rectangle. Choose your own size rectangle. Colour with one of the nominated colours.
