This one is all about creating a cool graphic paint effect, a bit like what I did in my daughter Marley's room recently (as seen below). It's perfect for a kids room as they love things to be a bit wacky, but it's equally just as good for any grown-ups room too :)Read More
Hey peeps! Got a bit of fun news today. I've been a long time fan of those little sticky strips that allow you to put artwork up on walls without ripping the paint off the walls or the need for a hammer and nails (cos honestly, I'm way too busy trying to get my eyeliner symmetrical to be worrying about that kinda shizz).Read More
