    This month's challenge

    Message from Jenny
    Welcome to our new challenge.
    I've chosen 'Acrylic Paints' as our theme. There are so many types of Acrylic Paints
    and endless ways you can use them on your cards.
    I love the matte feel of acrylics and the way they can be layered.
     I've listed some videos in case you need inspiration.
    I do hope you'll embrace this theme and have some fun!
