    1. Thank you Catherine, they are really useful instructions. I believe you could use them as the base for anything and everything xx

  2. Love this tag Tracey! It was the beautiful image that attracted me to come and take a closer look, but it's the background that steals the show when you look into it. Great work xx

    1. Thanks Teresa your feedback and views really do mean a lot. She's a pretty image to work with, you may be seeing a lot more of her in my work in the near future xx

  3. Oh Tracey! This is cool beyond words! I have several Asian themed projects due and am completely inspired by this tag to get them done! What gorgeous texture and colors you've layered together! Hugs, Autumn
