    Brilliant, Vicki, and brilliant, Joanne, for cooking up this idea. This is a cool way to present art methods, and I am looking forward to the recipe book that will result.

    There are a few steps that I am not sure how to execute
    How do you suggest I go about fonding the answers?
    Thanks

    Step 4 needs more explaination (not everyone knows iC well)

    Step 7 = what # and how

    Step 12 – using Apply or not – it doesn’t say

    Step 13 please explain how to do this

    Thank you
