Word Cloud Painting
A lover of painting since she was a little girl, Sammy always preferred staying in and creating beautiful characters and scenes. As she grew older, her passion led her to find new ways of expressing herself and explore new mediums. Sammy's paintings give her the chance to put her own world on paper, and the creative process has always been a reliable way for Sammy to de-stress and get a great mood boost. The festive paintings created for this how-to are certainly giving us some cheer too - thanks Sammy!
