Dusting Pastels

What is that I hear off in the distance? Has my husband watched enough Star Trek to be able to speak Klingon? No...foolish me...he is working on plumbing! He is replacing the faucet in the downstairs bathroom. Plumbing is NOT his forte'. He can fix computers and is fairly handy with a saw and wood...but give him a plumbing task...and he starts to speak a language that....well....let's just be happy there aren't any clergy or young children within ear shot!

I may be calling a plumber tomorrow...

And speaking of 'shout outs' - here is another 'shout out' to Pinterest. I ran across this dauber pastel technique using Versamark. After dusting off my VERY unused pastels I discovered this technique is AWESOME! I will try it again and again! Thank you Pinterest!
