Through the years, I’ve enjoyed working with many different art mediums and I’m always excited to learn new techniques. My heart’s desire is to inspire people through my art. My latest passion is mixed-media…It’s like a melting pot of all the mediums I love! Come learn more about me and my creative journey on my blog, A Creative Life, at: http://debbiesaenz.typepad.com
Need a place setting idea for a wedding? Add some pizzazz with these glitzy votive candles! Make them silver, gold or even red. The light dances through the glitter when they’re lit.
