Art Journaling with Dylusions Paint & Sprays!

I’ve recently taken up art journaling as another way to play with color and paper, and my favorite stamps and stencils.

Review | Introduction to Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Glitter

Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Glitter

Here’s another winner in the deep product line from Tim Holtz and Ranger Industries, which is always well thought out with perfectly matching colors and attractive packaging.
