1st Painting Lesson

The last time I took a painting class, it was in school where I tried to make an apple look more than a round object with a twig on the top...and I failed miserably.

Inspirational Sources + prize winners

Its very rare that I make a card that is inspired by just me, myself and I. I think the only cards I make where I'm not (consciously) influenced by others are my shadow box cards. The other day, a friend asked me to make a card for his father's 75th and when he told … Continue reading Inspirational Sources + prize winners
