An Asian Poem- and a little Blog Candy


  I love this image by Art Neko/About Art Accents- it is a Plum Blossom Branch and a Poem.
 I used a technique from the New Technique Junkies Newsletter called Smooshed Ink Blocks. I love this technique and you will most likely be seeing it again- it is a version of Polished Stone.

*** I love this image so much, I purchased it twice- if you would like to own it- just leave a comment on this post. I will use Random.org for a winner next Tuesday 3/4/14 AM.***     

Thanks for stopping by!
