    My problem has always been keeping my stippling "even" -- not bunched up tight in one spot and loose in another. I think this will really help with that, too. Thanks!

    This is a good idea. I to love Leah Day's tutorial's and find them helpful. What I try is to tweak them to my style but use her's and everyone's else's as a jump start and then let my idea's flow. That to me seems like what you are doing. Keep letting your creative juices flow. Grace

    Practice feathers

    A few weeks ago, I made up my mind I would learn feathers. First, I practiced with paper and pencil. Then, I tried it. Unfortunately, my machine was working faulty, but got that fixed. Watch some tutorial's and go for it. Like anything else practice and then it comes. I'm ok with feathers now

    THANK YOU - BLESSINGS ON YOU. Your technique is so simple and doable. I will give it a try before the weekend is gone. All my previous attempts resulted in clenched teeth, stiff neck and aching shoulders. Maybe there is chance for me afterall.
