This month, we have been exploring sunsets in our new Creative Costa inspired facebook group (if you have not yet joined, come over and play!). Here is the info on the challenge for May if you missed it.

So many different materials and techniques used from fabric, digital art, watercolour, bookmaking, kitting, photography and so much more…… We hope you are inspired by everyone’s work below.
