Playing with Mixed Media

Hi Magpies, Julie back again sharing with you my love of mixed media. When I first started scrapbooking, around 9 years ago, mixed media was more for art journaling & seemed very dark with dull colours of brown, black etc but it’s really come into it’s own in the last few years & a trend […]
