  72. December 22, 2016 / 3:44 pm

    Kim I love to hear you speak. As I watched your video I like the way you used paper and built up that part of your canvas with texture paste! I'd like to try using gesso as glue. I've never tried these textures before but you inspire me on. Love that your flowers grow from the feather.

  73. December 22, 2016 / 3:47 pm

    Thank you for your presentation, I enjoyed watching how your piece came together! Happy Christmas.

    I like the feather stencils and the chocolate pudding paints. Chocolate, feathers, blue – all favorites of mine. <3 I have not tried using a card with a stencil and will try it out. Simple, but nice art.
