Palette Knife Portrait Painting

(Palette knife only- from start to finish) 
This was my very first attempt with palette knife painting, and it was incredibly challenging. There were tears, anxiety, and moments when I wanted to trash the entire project, but I didn't quit and stuck with it until the end knowing I'd benefit from the experience. Phew, I did it!

palette knife painting is extremely challenging especially if youre trying to capture the fine details of a portrait but you made this look SO so good. even the before looks beautiful but i can't believe how well you blended it all in the "after" piece!!! LOVE seeing creative work like this.

The Leather Satchel

When Gail from The Leather Satchel Company contacted me with the amazing opportunity to choose a satchel of my choice to review, keep, and love forever I practically fell out of the chair. I'd been lusting after one of these gorgeous bags for the longest time, because while it may sound a bit unconventional, I thought it perfect for gallivanting about the sculpture park with my trusty writing supplies  swinging idly at my side.

A family company since the late 1960s, The Leather Satchel Company strives for high-quality standards that are evident down to the stitch by their meticulously crafted leathers. What's even more amazing about these "quintessentially British" satchels is the assortment of available colors (dying over neon pink) and the 5-year artisan …
