    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Ramona wants to know: "I don't have a tool for picking up sequins or small die cuts. Do you have an idea for a DIY tool?"
    A: What I've done in a pinch is to let some Tombow Multi-Purpose glue dry on the end of a skewer or a small stylus. The glue dries tacky, and it's great for picking up little embellishments and setting them in place.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Lori has an idea for the Fishing Vest tutorial: "So cute and fun. I think I'd like to try this for a birder, with binoculars a teeny journal and pencil."
