Am loving this tutorial so much Lisa, I couldn’t resist buying the brushes! But where can we get pastel papers? Thank you 🙂

They are in the Zip file that comes with the download.

I bought the pastel pack but I didn’t save the paper backgrounds and when I click the zip in my email it says link expired
