This was an amazing class. I learned so much, not only about creating the string but about proper way to use the watercolor pencil. I also learned I am tangling small again. I need to make bigger spaces. Great takeaways.

Thanks Eni for a great lesson - my first zoom! I viewed the lesson again this morning to help with the finishing 4 steps or so. I learned so much and I can't wait to do this again (on better paper).

Thank you Eni for another great class. I learned how to use watercolor pencils. I’m looking forward to lots of time playing and improving.

This class was fabulous! Just learning the watercolor technique you taught us was worth it, let alone everything else!

Finally saw how to do the backgrounds with the watercolour and gold gel pens, which I had long admired. Eni Oken, you took the project pack lesson and went off into flights of fancy.
