    Belen’s use of layers and layers of color is beautiful and I enjoyed learning how to create layers without muddling them. Thanks!

    I’m a tag person and I *love* this technique — particularly the layering! I’m always afraid of piling on . . . but I guess if you just let it dry between layers it works out fine! Guess I’ll be pulling out my tags and my heat gun….

    I love these tags. At the ripe old age of 66, I am in the process of beginning to make art. One of the hardest things I’ve faced so far is making spontaneous art marks – I love seeing people make marks, it helps my mind realize the possibilities open to me and gives me a sense of freedom. Thank you!
