Gina, just my own humble opinion, but for me I love seeing you and hearing you in your videos, but I can imagine that it is much easier for you and saves you a lot of valuable time doing your videos in this example.  I can only imagine how busy you are...I just prefer your personal touches that you lend to your usual videos.  However, whichever way your videos are done, I want you to know that you still educate all of us paper crafters.  Thanks Gina for all your hard work!  Cheers!

Gina, I can't thank you enough for showing us how to achieve a "woodgrain" background.  What I love about using Gamsol is it makes your colored images look like they were done by a professional.....beautiful Gina!  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Gina!  Great job, as always, very creative.  Quick question, is gamsol the same as (Mona Lisa) odorless thinner?  Also, did you use regular colored pencils or the watercolor kind?  Thank you!

I am so going to make this card.  I love the faux wood look.  Thank you Gina for this wonderful card.

I just made this card - what a great technique, easy with a wonderful woodgrained look.  Thank you so much.

I love what you did with this card.  I've got a question though....what is the gray liquid in the circular container? I'm not familiar with that.  Thanks.

Great masculine card, like the window effect

Lura, I wondered that myself and figured out that it's the white ink that helps give the splotched look of old wood and it also tones down the orange paper. Really cool technique, eh!

Why do you use the white pigment ink first?
