Check the close-up photos below where you can see all the details better!

using the sand paste through a stencil on the background gave the page an amazing texture!

I was able to bring the cut outs into life by adding brigher colors and shadows with my markers

never forget to add some sketchy lines with a fine black marker and a white gel pen… they really make a difference

  1. Online review are pivotal in modern consumer decision-making, offering insights into product quality and customer satisfaction. They empower buyers with authentic feedback and help businesses enhance their offerings based on consumer experiences.

  2. Such a pretty page! Using the Pitt pens really brought the bird to greater life!! I purchased 2 Pitt pens at a fine art store here in Tucson (Arizona) years ago (after watching you work with them) and enjoy using them mostly for shading and on occasion to highlight a focal point (as you did with the bird). In recent trips to a local Joann’s Craft Store I noticed they are now carrying sets (small and large) of Pitt Pens. Since they are more expensive than my budget will allow, unfortunately, I appreciate hearing that colored pencils can also be used. I would have thought the glue — even though dry — might not allow pencils to work. I’ll give it a try!!! Personally I enjoy watching you work with the Pitt pens — regardless of my budget restrictions. Thank you so much for the video, Vicky!
