  8. I love everything you do and it makes me happy to hear your ” perky” personality … I’m an absolute beginner and would love to be able to do a watercolor painting. I just don’t seem to be able to draw so I feel like I’ll never be able to paint anything. I guess some people just don’t have IT ….
    I was hearing you reference ” Paint My Photo” . Would it be too much to ask if maybe you could add the link for them I tried to type it in as a web address but it didn’t come up ? I guess I’m missing something.
    ThanksSo Much, SandyC.

    • It would be nice if there was a written list of the products used. Dear Lindsay speaks so fast I can’t understand her, especially when she knows a product line and kind of mumbles her words. I suppose I’m just old and don’t hear well (big grin). BTW, no one has the hair and flesh tone set (Julie Netting) that Lindsay mention. Can anyone suggest a different set????? Thanks in advance.

  9. I found, on eBay, Julie Nutting Water Color pencils to color hair and skin. Apparently it’s been renamed Soft Neutrals. With shipping to my location, about $14. Guess you could get it cheaper elsewhere if you knew the name… I was so excited I just ordered them on eBay.

  10. I just found this 140lb cold pressed watercolor paper at target for 2.99 for 20 7.5×9 sheets! I didn’t know how great it would be because I think it is for kids the brand is Kid Made Modern. It is called Watercolor Tablet but it isn’t gummed on all sides. So I took the chance thinking if it was awful the kids could have it. It is actually pretty nice. Not the best ever but better than the tim holtz. It has a nice smooth texture for stamping and I tried to get it to pill up and couldn’t. I am so excited I wanted to pass it on.

  11. I love your videos and plan to start painting every day. I made a really great stamped, watercolor card. My first! It was for friend who lost her hubby. I so wanted to share with you but don’t know where to send it, it took mr a long time because I messed up my first attempt. But, it was relaxing and feel upbeat because I created the card.

    I love the watercolor, acrylics and card making. Maybe I will get serious enough for a die machine???? I have gotten my 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters interested. Be sure to post a link on your blog so my granddaughter can see your twins site. One granddaughter 12 years old.

  13. Not sure you have ever discussed this before but here goes. Question – would it be best to use initials or something other than our signature on a painting? I worry about someone using my signature and thief identity!
