Make A Wish by Riikka Kovasin

I just love to create a colorful background using stencils, along with colored pencils and mists, on my layouts. It’s such a great way to help your pictures pop on the page. Never hesitate to step out of your comfort zone by trying something different. You will be amazed at how creative you can be, and how fun your project will turn out.
