Hi Ann, thank you! I'm always checking out library books and doing Google searches looking for ideas. I got the basic idea of this from a book, but I didn't have the kind of lighting required so I improvised by using my monitor. Sometimes when I'm reading about a technique a little something different will occur to me as it did this time.
