I hope you enjoyed my project today, and believe me when I say that mixed media is easy with ColourArte products. I hope you will stop by their website and check them out.
Before I go, though, I want to remind you that we will be having an extremely fun blog hop at the end of this month. The design team will be sharing their renditions of altered shoes. Should be pretty interesting, don't you think? So save the date and be sure to come join us for lots of inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by, and until next time, have a fabulous weekend, and stay crafty, my friends!
