    Q: Debbie asks: "What do you do with your gel prints?"
    A: Most of my gel prints have been used for card backgrounds, but I've also done prints onto canvas panels as a base for paintings. I'm also starting to incorporate them into paper beads and into and jewelry designs like these Paper Pendants - they guarantee that each piece is one-of-a-kind!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Bonnie has an idea for the Delft Tile tutorial: "I have been to Delft, Holland, and have several authentic pieces of Delft pottery in my home. This would be great as a framed piece to hang with my pottery. Thank you!"
