Aldi Graphic Markers with Swatching and Other Hauls

Hello fellow Alchemists,

In today’s video I share with you a couple of small hauls from around my town and one sent to me from Victoria :). Luckily I have made a friend who helped me out when I was in a bind by sending me the Aldi Graphic Markers.  You can check out her shop here. Unfortunately there were some issues with the delivery company. So it took a bit longer than it should have to get to me lol.

Why do I need so may clip boards? To help shoot colouring videos hopefully as you can see in this card I made. Still learning though and am thinking I may need to turn the board sideways so the angle better. Also one is for colouring on the go as I have started taking markers and stamped images with me when I go places. The stickers are just so pretty they had to come home with me.

Apparently I need a lot of cutters because I bought the mini Stanley knife set and the rotary cutter from Aldi lol. The rotary cutter is because I have 300gsm cardstock and I waste some because in order for it to fit I my paper trimmer I have to fold each sheet in half :(. Cheap washi is always good and good for happy mail I’m told :D. The mat I didn’t need but it’s a pretty blue. Purple would be even better lol.

My awesome friend Melinda sent me the Alcohol Markers so I could road test them :). So far they actually seem pretty nice. Not many blending colours but they were $1.08au a marker. There are other ways to blend like I showed in the video. In my package there were also some packets of awesome chipboard. I already have a card idea for the super hero masks :).

Hope you are getting some arty crafty alchemy on :). Bye for now.
