Alcohol Inks Acrylic Board Book Class

I know what you’re wondering.  Where have I been?  I have been busy with life and taking a break from creating.  Just wasn’t really feeling it until the last several weeks.  Nothing really new to show, as I have been working on crepe paper peonies for friends.  I did take a class at Castle in […]
