    Gasp!!!! Really BEAUTIFUL work! I think this will be featured all over the place Ev! (I don’t know how you manage to do such fantastic pastel work on the velour paper)!!!!

  • Dear Lynda, you left me speechless. You are the one I always admire. Thank you SO much!!! I fall in love with velour paper. But I’m still learning how to get more from its interesting texture. One thing I know well now – it can take a lot of my fingers blending :)…And thank you so much for adding me to your watch list, I am very flattered!
