Great vintage find by DixHillDecor (55.00 USD) http://ift.tt/1Ox5V83
For different surface textures, I chose a lemon, a silk scarf, a wire scourer and a faux fur throw.
For the fur, I tried pencil, water colour with brushes, conte sticks, dropping ink (this didn’t work well and resulted in the blob!) I think a furry effect can be achieved well with pencil using fine lines and also by pressing brushes down on the paper. 182 more words
