Really a great class lots of tips and ideas. Thank you !
I had a great time with this class. Everyone should give painting moons a try!
Lot of fun and easy to follow! I did my first set on beginner paper (it was cold press, 140lb. but not sure about the cotton content) and it came out so-so. Then I did another on 25% cotton, and it came out much better! I'll upload both to the projects page tomorrow.
