365 Collages | Week 11 | Bambi came to visit

365 Collages | Week 11 | Bambi came to visit

In my last post I blamed work and good weather. What shall I blame this time? Time being an escape artist perhaps? Because it is true, it really is. But also folks, don’t arrange a big swap in the middle of a 365 Art Project that you’re already behind with… Just don’t. But since I […]
