I am always excited when I use something new for the first time, but more so when I use something I bought over a month ago and am just using. Here is the first page using one of the TH paper dolls:
I did a better (but still crap) job of photographing my steps. To be honest I am not sure anyone cares LOL! But my memory is shit so I do it as much for me as anyone. I started simple enough, with a bit of paint and the brayer to spread it. Then I smeared a little gesso with my fingertip
Then I got all into the stenciling and the stamping. I caught the striped edge stencil then…nothing

I mentioned this little roller tool before – well, I mentioned I used the zig-zag one but couldn’t find THIS one. I did. They are both from a kids PlayDoh set and better than a credit card to make lines, as you can roll the line right up the page. It looks lovely IRL with the fine liquid gold ink lines.
