backgrounds as backstory

So the thing about building these backgrounds is that they take time, but the time spent is worth it. Like a well written story, the author has constructed a great deal of it that she frequently doesn’t tell you – it simply informs the characters’ actions. In the same way, the underpinnings of the design is created and present, and informs the object even when it is obscured by the next (several) layers.

I do love the way the silks glow.

I am so sick of transfer paints. I did my last one Jan 31 and I may be finished with them. Although they are not gone.
