Your Favorite Technique

Hello Everyone, Angela here with our new challenge, First I would like to say WOW! so many wonderful entries for our last challenge.  Don't forget to stop back next Friday to find out the winners.

This time we would like to see your favorite technique. Your project can be anything you want as long as it uses your favorite technique. Please be sure to tell us a little about your technique too. 

I have so many favorite techniques it was hard to choose. I think one I use a lot is Napkin Collage. I love adding layers of napkins, painting and stamps to create.
