Mixed Media Winners
We started the March Scrapbooker’s Club by defining ‘Art’ and who is an artist! We established we are all artists and we all started somewhere (I even got brave and shared my very first albums). We also learnt to not be so hard on ourselves and not compare our work to others, instead self-critique your work and learn from others.
The layouts and pieces of ART that were presented at the Scapbooker’s Club were outstanding and everyone did an amazing job. Peter was the lucky one to pick his favourite 5 this month.
So congratulations to….
