  1. There is no wasting when it comes to watching you.🙂


  2. Awesome job! Enjoyed the tutorial….I always learn so much from watching your artwork!


  3. Thanks for using the stampin gear and reminding me I have it to use. It’s neglected here too.


  4. Loved that journal page. Got the journal just haven’t tried doing it yet. India Inks on Amazon Prime are 27.97 with free shipping. They are on my wish list . I need to use more of my supplies, I have lots of pastels and chalks I haven’t used much. I used my pastels with water like you showed us but can I use water with the pebbles chalk sets?


    • Emily, you can use a blender pen or damp paintbrush to pick up color from the pebbles inks like you would watercolors for a very soft coloring effect. Works great and is easy to control. Great for coloring stamped images on smooth cardstock.


  5. I love the background on this. Great quote. Like the way the frame turned out too. Nice job!


  6. Hi Lindsay!

    I have a request. There are so many videos out there on using stencils with embossing pastes, gesso, etc., but hardly any on just the basics of using a stencil. Like, what is the easiest ways to use them; what are the best ways to use them with them with acrylics or distress inks; how to clean them without bending them; etc?

    Again, thanks for all you do for us!


  7. The way you just go for it & get messy inspires me everytime!! Thank you!!


  8. Hi Lindsay, I have a challenge for you. You showed how to make flip it cards using any die without the cost of buying the flip it die bases. I want to know if you can figure out a way to do the new pivot cards without buying the expensive base dies to make them.I will be playing with the idea to figure it out too but hoping you can come up with something clever.


  9. I love this! As always, I learn so much from your tutorials! I appreciate so much your non-threatening manner that makes it so easy to relax & have fun.
