Isn't that clever, using the shimmer paint to do the faux mother of pearl technique... I love all of your samples! I think my fave is the sense of time one - I really love the soft shading you've achieved on the clock.

So glad to hear your presentation went well! It is quite a thrill going up on stage, isn't it?
