Wow, great video, thank you so much for sharing! I’m terrified to try mixed media art, I know it would be a hot mess and I’m too much of a “perfectionist”, you make it look so easy and gorgeous! ❤️

Jamie, thank you so much! I wanted this one to be easy and quick to make. Just give it a try and enjoy the process. xoxo Aneta
