no No no no No

This month was a really tough one! Due to the short time, due to our laziness, I decided to give jewellery making a miss and was planning to do a bit of a mixed media kinda thing. When I was at school I did a lot of this kind of thing because I couldn't draw to save myself.

    I really like it...
