I'm definately feeling creative at the moment..I just don't know what to do first...I'm thinking of starting the skull..I just need to find my acrylics.I know that I have a small case of acrylic in tubes..but I also need to buy some new bottles.I'm also planning to paint the kitchen in the next couple of weeks..I will share when I've done...the plan involves some raspberry bellini and cream paint and lots of strange art. Just hold that
