Products: acrylic paints; Dylusion Ink Sprays (the splatters); Mini Silhouette Script 6" x 6" stencil (Balzer Designs); paper flowers (Recollections); rhinestones ( Nicole Crafts).
I am also linking to Art Journal Journey (Flower Power theme); Paint Party Friday; Art Journal Every Day; Creative Every Day; and the Simon Monday Challenge ( About A Face theme). Looking forward to see what you all have been up to this week!
