Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Natalie asked: "I have seen so many cards in the gallery that are "twisted cards". Is there a tutorial for it? It looks like a triangle. I have looked through the whole tutorials section and can't find it. Thanks."
A: We don't have a tutorial for that yet, but you can find instructions in this technique challenge thread.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Joyce has a suggestion for the Eggshell Mosaic Background: "I am an egg artist. I use only real egg shells. I thought I would share how I remove membrane from eggs. Wash the outside of the shell with dish soap and water. Using full strength bleach, cover the shell and let it sit for about 15 minutes. This will cause the membrane to turn yellow. When all of the yellow is gone, then you know that the membrane has been dissolved. Then you can rinse the shell with cold water."
