{Mixed Media Tutorial} Art Happens Here

Good evening all. Hope you are well and avoiding all the bugs going around at the moment.

We had a lovely week in Lanzarote, weather was mostly nice though it was a bit windy...temperatures were about 20 degrees higher than home though! Back to reality now , I was expecting to do Jury Duty this week but it seems my services aren't required after all. 

My first tutorial of 2017 is up on the STAMPlorations blog today, I decided to do a nice bright canvas for my craft room. I hope you enjoy seeing how it was produced.

These photos really don't do the colours justice...I'm still struggling to find the right place to take my pictures in the new house! I really must get my light box thingy set up somewhere 😑

If you love STAMPlorations products or if you'd like to try them for the first time I have a discount code to share with you - STAMPGIRLCAROLD

This gives you a 20% discount on all stamps, stencils and dies...both regular and sale priced items. Please note this code can't be combined with any other code. It is valid for multiple uses whilst I'm a STAMPlorations Girl.
