  1. Love this and would like to learn how to selectively add color to one of the areas of the gem, like you mentioned. Is that a tutorial online somewhere? It’s not on your FotoRX you tube listings…

    1. Wendy, thank you for the note + visit! I was worried no one was interested in our little, tute but I am so glad you popped in. We will be making a part 2 to this tutorial very soon!

  2. Thank you so much. I am wondering how you made the gems. Do you have a video on that? I am very curious to know how to do step two with the colours. Are you going to make another video? The drawing did you do that by hnd and then scan it or how is it made? I am sorry that I have so many questions but it was very inspiring!!

    1. Hello Jeanett! Thank you for the visit and all the questions, we love to answer them:) I think we will be filming more video tutorials in November and will definitely get to part II. As for the gems it was made in Illustrator, I’ve been trying to convince Michelle for ages to do an illustrator class, because I could use one too, lol!

    1. Hi Vera, it really is and opens up a whole world of creative possibilities! Nice post, btw on watercolor lettering:)

  3. Hay,

    How coud I say only marvelous? You deserve more than that.

    It helps me a great deal your post.

    Keep posting regularly. BTW I got your post from googel search engine.

  4. I needed to compose a similar (or at least it seems similar,
    depending on the info given) research newspaper back
    in 2015 when I was a pupil. Gathering the required
    information was quite hard and hard. However, you managed to show the subject really accessible and clear.

    It was intriguing to refresh several things and find out something new.
