Episode 14 :: Getting Started with Sampling

January 2016

I’m not sure what happened but part of the sampling segment was missing and the other part repeated twice! I’m sorry for this major inconvenience but you only saw part of the story of how I sample. If you’d like to see just this segment (in it’s entirety), head to 2:10 minutes. 

Thank you for watching! This week’s show features my process for sampling and creating my spinner’s control cards, my current WIPs and answering a quick question!
