So Suzy Stamps with Jane Davenport water colors

Happy Mother’s Day everyone. I bet we are all mothers of some sort, for example I’m the mother of a little fur bay, the mother of dragons (I have gazillion plush dragons) and mother of my own ideas (yikes, cheesy… LOL).

Review of new Jane Davenport products from Michael’s

Jane Davenport Acrylic Paints

You might have seen it already, Michael’s introduced some new mixed media items. They are all from Jane Davenport and range from art journals, to coloring mediums, washi tape, stencils, stamps and more. I got my hands on a few items (I still need those butterfly markers :P) and wanted to share my first impression with you πŸ˜€ I’m not good in painting anything remotely realistic, that’s why I was super happy to find a face stencil inside the acrylic paints.
