Drawing Tip #9: Take Notes
It may seem obvious, but when you're experimenting with different combinations of pencils and blenders and techniques, write down what you did. Make quick notes: Which pencil? How hard did you press? What kind of stroke? Which blending tool? What order did you do it in? The more layers you add, the less likely you are to remember them later. So write it down. It'll help you remember not only what works well, but also what doesn't.
