Splitcoast tutorial: Layered Retiform

It's my turn to share a tutorial over at Splitcoast, and I've got a fun new one for you - the Layered Retiform technique is a great way to make colorful backgrounds, as well as swatching your coloring mediums to discover new colors! Believe it or not, this sample was made with just 3 pencils...!
I used 4 Copic markers for the next background (the mouse was colored with Copics and pencil):
...and this one was done with watercolors. I used Copics and pencils to color the image, and whatever yellow ink was left in my blending brush for the background. 
It was fun to pull out a few of my House Mouse stamps today! I have over 100 of them - eek! The sentiments I used are my designs - the typed ones are from THIS new clear set, which stays on my desk for all its useful sentiments, and the brushed words are from THIS older clear set (it's got a countdown on it, so I would guess it will not be around much longer but how CUTE are those snails!!)

Speaking of collections, I added a few new Winnie the Pooh jewelry pieces to my Etsy store this week! One has sold already, but there are still two, and I've had requests for Eeyore necklaces, so those will be coming soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
