Messy, Painty Art Cards Tutorial

Hello fellow creatives, Rochelle here from rockmelon recycled. Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day to play with art supplies.  Today I’m showing you how I play with paint, ink sprays, brusho crystals, stencils and a gelli plate.  At the end of our messy, painty play we’ll all have 16 unique arty cards to post, pin to an inspiration board, frame or leave in the public library to bring happy to someone’s day!
