So I asked If I could make something else instead of a card. And I could. So here it comes ! I have been inspired a lot by the song "Part of your world" from the movie the little mermaid.I wanted to make something mermaidy and that... [Lire la suite]

It was my first round box and I was very excited at the beginning. Then my feelings changed : I became a bit more reluctant to the idea as I had absolutely no clue on how I would... [Lire la suite]
