Caught up

Splutter splutter.....I just lost my post!


Art prompts galore are doing an Artist Trading Coin challenge where the theme is eyes.
Paper Artsy are also running a challenge so I've decided to link these as it's been forever since I last joined a challenge other than the journal ones.....even my inchies have fallen by the wayside!

Some paper scraps & stencils, magazine images and I have my very first coins.....
