Plain, straightforward, bold, masculine, or fairytale-like -- well that's how I see it. I have no idea how others see it...

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
Hehe,that's a good one :lol: I just start, never have a plan, never measure things, I do everthing by eye,I just see what happens.I am too chaotic and impatient to work by a plan. Occasionally I follow a sketch. The colour I use most is red.
