My video career begins....

I've been itching to do a video tutorial for ages but my lazy hubby wouldn't get the video camera out and claimed we needed to buy special editing software first. Anyway I finally persuaded him that we could shoot this using the ipad 2 and here are the results. Not bad I think and only took a "few takes". I am interested to get any feedback you might have and any ideas for other future video tutorials.

(Hubby now claims we need an ipad 3 so he
can "shoot me in High Def "- not happening)

So, here is a link to the tutorial - Beginners Guide to Prisma Pencils.

There is also a permanent link on my sidebar with, hopefully, more videos to be added! And, finally here is the finished card from the video.

What a great video Liz, I have always wondered how to use paper stumps and solution and I do wonder what the difference is between prisma pencils and watercolour pencils? do you know? Isn't it funny how you build up a picture of someone in your head - I didn't have you pictured with such a strong accent hehehe I guess because I check your blog regularly it feels like you live down the road and should have an Aussie drawl hehe x joy

Great video liz...I'm tempted with the prismas as the shading looks so lifelike. Love your finished card, so pretty and cheery :0)
Is that a sponge that you just store in a jar soaked with the blending solution or did you buy it like that??

Ooh, now I did wonder what KIND of video career, lol! ;o)

Great tutorial Liz and I certainly know the basics now as I really didn't know where to start with Prismas. Look forward to more of these. A few close -ups would be good for those of us that are as blind as bats!!

Gorgeous finished project too.
