Two Girls

Two Girls Two Girls is the result of this week’s Life Book 2016 lesson with Jane Davenport and Tamara Laporte.  It really spoke to me because I am so comfortable with the mix or ‘jam’ as they called it of their two styles.  We were asked to use limited supplies of our choice.  I chose pencil, […]
