CREATIVE TYPE
I was so thrilled that Creative Type is up and running again! I feel this blog really pushes the art side of me. Its all about negative space and the making a statement. After the black of winter here in Tasmania (black background)- and now into spring (trees)....I just want to get into SUMMER!(photo) Just ADORE the hot weather!!!
