Graphic 45 has a
marvelous new series The Secret Garden.
These pages are filled with lovely pastel flowers and backgrounds. These
pastels are NOT insipid fades; they are full of color and life. Caroline has
done collages bringing images together to “tell a Story”. Scissors and
adhesives are a must… plus a love of “fussy cutting”.
Secret Garden Cards: Caroline Lawson: Saturday, April 6: 1-4 PM….$25.00
