Morning all. 

     Just started playing about trying with the mixed media and really love the different effects you can get, Its really is fun getting messy. I have made the tag I am going to enter it in a challenge.

Went to Hobbycraft yesterday and pictured up some more new stash, Like all crafters I really did not need it BUT it still fell into my basket.
