Week four of Wanderlust 2019 and we're back with Kasia Avery (blog, Instagram). After having said that I don't do the whole word for the year thing, guess what this week's exercise was... I also said that even if I did "my words would be the same every year: explore, play, learn". So what word… Continue reading Wanderlust: do!
I picked up a bag of assorted Stampbord pieces on sale ages ago and they've sat in my stash unloved ever since.

I am rubbish at leaving white space on pages, especially as much as this; the best I normally manage is to have some colour everywhere and then… Continue reading Wanderlust: create good art

I… Continue reading Squareathon challenge #9–12
