    Is there a video for lesson 14? I don’t see one. I had no problems with the rest and found them to be awesome.

      Hi Diane,
      I guess I did make this confusing. There are two videos about markers. #13 is Part 1 and #14 is Part 2.
      Sorry for the confusion.

      Glad you liked them.

    That should be lesson 14 part 2.
