G’day everyone,

I’m going to be playing along with Ina Solsbery today, if you haven’t seen her challenge video, I’ll link it down below. Ina has set a challenge to use four core elements: –

  1. A box or tin
  2. Texture paste
  3. Rope, cord or string etc
  4. Beads (any size or shape)

If you do play along, and you are uploading to social media, don’t forget to use the #4core so Ina can see your creations.

This has been a fun challenge to do today and love playing mixed media on other than paper.
