WoW Eni! I am so Impressed with this video Twisted Ropes it was Amazing! You really broke the lesson down into easy to follow pieces! I really enjoy your videos because it’s so nice to hear your voice it’s very calming and relaxing and easy to understand!

These Wild & Crazy Twisted Ropes are so Addicting!

Eni, you actually went into a lot more depth than I had expected! The exercise that you have us do with the colored pen is perfect - it’s the little things you have us do like this that makes a lesson fun and easy to remember! I have locker over your previous tiles with Amazement and wondered how you did them - well because you added so much content to this video I am so happy to say that I can now understand how you make the Magic Happen! I love the added embellishments that you can add to the rope to decorate it and the tangles hiding in the nooks and crannies in the background are much easier than I thought to accomplish! Let but definitely not least your Shading is Phenomenal and added secret of the blue pencil really helps to make the ropes pop off the page! As you tell I thoroughly enjoyed your video it’s definitely worth a lot more than you’re asking! Take care and thank you so much for creating all these wonderful videos!
