Would you be bothered by others doing something similar to your daily doilies?

Giveaway winner!
Thank you everyone who entered the giveaway draw for the 

"Gold Sand" piece! I collected a total of 326 entries from 
Facebook and Instagram. Endless thanks for everyone’s support,
I say this every time but I really am happy to have you all here with
me on this endless journey. 

Congrats to “thedoodlebug” from Instagram! I’ll be contacting the winner shortly to gather information for shipping :)

What materials do you use for your drawings or paintings?

draabbles answered:

For dry media, just whatever HB, B, or 2B pencil I have lying around combined with a red col-erase pencil. Tombow and Palamino are my favourites at the moment. Sometimes I like choosing some pencil crayon colors for accents. (I use this combination on my doilies)

As for paints, I have my own range of brushes but I often just end up using the Pentel aquash for convenience. I have a windsor and newton watercolor compact as well as some individual jars of FW inks. Lately I’ve bought a lot of Holbein gouache and watercolor tubes, and the list kind of goes on…

I like experimenting with materials so it changes often but I plan to use my Facebook page for art supply reviews as well! So stay tuned for those!

Okay, so many of my watchers on deviantART are already aware of this, but last month I was scammed for thousands of dollars by a user named Pixlett / ToxicMutagen. (They both use the same PayPal address) Pixlett has since deactivated her account.
My account of the fraud:
[ Part 1] [ Part 2 (Today) ]
Pixlett bought some artwork from me for very large sums of money. Then, a few months later, I notice that a couple grand went missing from my PayPal, because she filed a credit card chargeback against me, claiming that she never got the item. Obviously, it was digital artwork, so there was no physical item to ship. She did this for every single piece of artwork she bought from me, and even after backing myself up with a ton of evidence, PayPal ruled in her favor.
And now, today, it has happened AGAIN. Pixlett has filed MORE chargebacks against me, putting me into negative $2,000 in my PayPal account. I start school in a week and need money to pay for my new textbooks, supplies, and gas, but looks like that’s not gonna happen thanks to this fraud.
I have set up a PayPal Donation button on my page, where you can help me out. Even just a dollar helps. Small amounts add up quickly, and I need to get out of the negatives as soon as possible.
I apologize, because I never ask for help, but this is just beyond my capacity of fixing in such a short amount of time. Several other people were also affected by this scammer, so please consider helping them out too.
Thank you! ;u; If you have any questions or concerns, you can message me on here or on my dA.
