Abstract marks on packaging paper

The easiest and least expensive way to make an art journal is by using packaging paper you have around the house. You’ve seen already my mini packaging paper journal I posted on the blog last year. I still have plenty of pages to fill in and so many ideas!  Cel mai usor si economic mod de  crea un art jurnal este folosind hartie de impachetat pe care probabil o aveti prin casa.

La revedere 2014, bun venit 2015!

Ei da, a mai trecut un an. Inca un an a zburat cu viteza luminii! Craciunul a trecut, iar noul an ne-a batut la usa si a fost musai sa-i deschidem cu voie buna! Nu sunt deloc un om al planurilor mari si-mi place sa fac pasi mici, dar siguri. Pentru 2015 imi doresc multe. Multe. Si nu cred ca sunt singura, cu totii ne dorim cate ceva. Cand vine vorba de
