Thrifting Thursday – Thrifted Print and Encaustic Paints

  My thrift store jaunt this week was a BUST! So I’m re-posting a project from my previous blog. So I was at one of my thrift stores and I walked by this print at least 3 times. It talked to me. I swear it did. I wasn’t listening though. It looked like it had hung in […]
