Hi Bee Arters!!
In this journal project once again I have integrated the Bohemian Bliss collection designed by Sue Smyth. I wanted to create a page that incorporated a face surrounded by a bouquet of flowers and feathers coming back to thoughts of the iconic artist Frido Khalo for inspiration. I hope this project inspires you to create your own page using this amazing collection.
