My garden like a little bit a green jungle and I spend every free minute in my beautiful garden. I am also happy I became my first Biontech/Pfizer vaccination and my second I get it in July.  Our lockdown situation is in phase 2 from the reopening.

Scrap Fx Australia post June #1

 Hello everyone, and welcome to my first blog post in the month June. I have for you three art journal pages as inspiration.

But at the moment I love to create and paint with them.  I have lots of different watercolor brands so as Schmincke, van Gogh, Winsor Newton, Old Holland Prima Marketing and 13@rts. Each  watercolor brand has its advantages and disadvantages.  I still love everything about my different watercolors. So let`s start with my inspirations. Broken Crayons still Color...

13@rts stamp group post in the month of May
