i love your style Smiley
I was wondering how you got the seed beads to stick without a load of glue or something oozing out from uderneath them making tha paper shiny!!
Cheesy
Also how do you glue down the owl and other paper amazingness without the glue going through the paper!?! Cheesy
I'm in awe of your beautiful line drawings and watercolours Smiley

Thanks for your kind words!!! For the seed beads, I put tiny dots of regular old Elmer's White School glue on the painting, then carefully placed a seed bead on each dot. Let it dry until it's good and dry, then they stick very well, given I don't mess with them much. And for the other paperstuff like the owl, I'll usually use an Elmer's purple gluestick, but if I want it to stand out a bit, I'll use the hot glue gun on the hottest setting. Neither gluestick or hot glue has excess moisture, so I don't have any problems with them going through the paper Smiley The white glue has to be used very sparingly, though, because it has a lot of water in it.
