This is the one and only time I’m going to show you my bad stamping efforts but it’s for a good cause,  you just have to trust me on that one!

Colourful canvas

Sometimes you just need to create for the sake of creating. I have an art journal that I use for this purpose, but I haven’t cracked it open for quite some time now. I was really beginning to feel a need to play with inks, paints and Glimmer Mists, so I decided that it would…  |  read more »
