Well, it's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Joni Nina Andaya. She is a huge inspiration to me, and many of the techniques I try here are because of her. So when I saw that she is this month's Case Study, you KNOW I had to play along!

I knew I could, I knew I could (it's in my name, afterall - ha!). And here's what it looked like in the end (nothing like how it started, btw!!):
