This month we had a sketch as our starting point for our creating. When I saw the January – June Mini Catalogue, there were two sets I fell in love with immediately! One was Hydrangea Hill Suite and the other was Sand and Sea Suite. When they arrived at my place I immediately got Hydrangea […]

Water colour effect using blending pens
