It’s my pleasure to bring you the following inspiration from the January/February issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. In this issue, you’ll discover creative planners, ideas for vision boards, cut-paper art, and, as you’ll see here, an esteemed collection of mixed-media artwork from readers like you. Enjoy! ~Cherie
