HEY!  If you click the photo to the left, you will be taken to the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine website page where you can sign-up with your email to receive a FREE Guide to Supplies for Mixed Media Art.  I don't think it's permissible for me  to download on my website.  So you will have to follow the link and sign-up and download it yourself.  But then you'll have your own copy!

Please note:  I do not have a "brick & mortar" business location. I do my crafting at home.  One of these days, I hope to have a studio with some classroom space.
