Good day to you! I hope you’ve been getting lots done so you have time to be creative and have a little fun tonight. I’ve been working my butt off all day so that I can go out and have a few drinks with my freshly-21-year-old roommate, Jake, tonight at 9 pm, so I have tons to get done before then. I just couldn’t go without posting up the first part of this series, though. :)
This is part one of a (at this point) 12-part series on what Distress Inks are, why they’re cool, and how to use them. I’m starting out with the basics. The video today shows you how I store and organize my inks, blending foams, and blending tools. Thursday’s installment will show you how to get started collecting (hehe) colors and what ones I bought first and find essential to my collection. This is sharing what works for me, and I hope you find a system that works for you as well. Here’s a little graphic I came up with for the series:
I’ll be posting a new installment every Tuesday and Thursday for the next six weeks. The class is video-based but I’ll always have links and make more information in the blog post accompanying the video. I hope you enjoy it! Here’s the first video:

If you have any questions or requests for what to see in a future video, please leave a comment! I’d be happy to answer them and show you what you want to see. :) Okay, enough breaking from my homework now. I have logos and packages to design. Oy.
