How to Hop:

Each day we'll post the designers participating in the Blog Hop. Click on each one and check out their project. Leave a comment on their blog that lets them know you really looked at their project. We 'll draw three blogs at random from the four days, then randomly draw one commenter from each blog. You must have a U.S. mailing address to win, but we'd love for everyone to hop and comment! You can check out the Official Rules for all our contests if you have questions.

  ***Blog Hop Hint - if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, "Sorry this page cannot be found," just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog's name), and it will take you to that blog's most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.

I have a special project to share with you today, using products from all three companies.

  21. Linda, I have a question about your work. Have you ever used this medium to do work that has a greater depth? In other words, is the medium limited to being poured to a certain depth that will dry completely?

    ReplyDelete
