Hello all-
I hope that you had a great weekend. This weeks theme is going to be FLOWERS. Flower stamps, prima flowers, flower punches, and the like. I am very excited about this because I plan on doing some techniques like watercoloring, using prismacolor pencils and gamsol, and using alcohol stay tune and be sure to come back!

Thanks for stopping by!
