Such a great video! I am going to have to try this! Thank you so much for taking the time to make it!


This is a great video, and very clear instructions. I love the transitions, very professional. You're a natural at this. Oh, and the technique is great!


What an unexpected, but very welcomed gift! It was a joy to watch your hands work. Looking forward to the online class.

How lovely! I feel like I spent the morning getting to play along with you while I have my kitty on my lap and my cup of tea in my hand. I always enjoy seeing how other artists go about their process. It is inspiring, Katie! Thanks, sweetie!

Oh, I had so much fun playing with this technique tonite! My table is a big mess, which is always a good sign. Thanks, Katie! xoxo


Hi, thanks for the video. Can't wait to try your techniques. Only one comment for your future video, maybe you don't need a background music for this before i kind of distracted by it. :D


Wow - that was great! It's just like being in class with you, Katie! I love the techniques, too - makes me want to pull out the inks and all - too bad I need to wake up in 3 hours to go to work...

Love this video! Thanks for sharing. I found it through Pinterest



Thanks !! I didn't understand what is the stuff you use to rub the magazine's pages. could you tell me please !!! Have a nice day !!


Thank you so much for this wonderful video. I found this a few weeks back and ordered the Never Dull as I could not find it locally. I already have my sheets of magazines pages and received the Never Dull yesterday. I can't wait to try this! Thanks again.


What a great tutorial! Thank you so much for sharing this with the world. It might just be my ears, but the volume of the (beautiful) music made it difficult for me to keep my focus on your voice. But this is a fantastic video, and I'm so grateful for your generous instruction and incredible talent. I absolutely love your art. Thank you!!!
