The side panel is created with the Black Ice Technique for some added interest and texture! The gem in the center is colored with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Blends Alcohol Marker.

About Me Page

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!
