"I am thrilled to be part of the Mix Media Monthly Team! My favorite thing is discovering new techniques by playing with multiple inky products & stretching them to see what they can do. As a technique junkie, my passion is teaching. I hope to inspire & bring you with me on my journey as I share my journal books, canvas, art tags & more."

Karen made a beautiful journal for our challenge this month:
