I am an Artist Canvas Tutorial

Hi everyone, rockmelon recycled here. Every day is a great day to create.  Todays tutorial is exploring stamping, stencils and finger painting.  We are never too old to finger paint, and it’s fast becoming one of my favourite techniques.  This tutorial is suitable for beginners through to advanced artists, so grab an apron and some paints.
