I cannot tell how much fun it was to step out side of my box (Copics) and to get all messy with the paints. Please stop by and check out the challenge at CMC, you will enjoy it. Now, if you are a beginner like me, Marti is offering Mixed Media classes and you can find all the info here. I am taking a couple and I cannot tell you how much I am learning.
