Pam Bray Designs: A Girl With Flair

Sharing creative ideas through mixed media, stamps, embossing powder, charms, chipboard, stencils and designer collections

“I love going junkie, going to yard sales, flea markets…you name it I love searching for unique and interesting pieces that I can upcycle!
Last summer I found a box of unique embroidery hoops…so when we were asked to upcycle a project this month; I grabbed one of the hoops along with Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook Collection to create a unique wall piece.
I hope as we are entering Spring/Summer make sure to grab some fun items that you can use your Graphic 45 papers on.” Pam
