While doing a (very) little bit of tidying up, I came across December’s Scrawlrbox and decided to have a quick play. This subscription box included 3 Spectrum Noir metallic paint markers, a black POSCA marker, a pink Gelly Roll Moonlight, a pencil and a square Art Gecko pad with black paper. I loved the silver… Continue reading Quick play: butterfly in stars
