 :bigwelcome: Paula, do post some of your works you have done. Feel free to send any pointers my way!  ;)

Any thoughts on what you'd like to start with? Drawing is always the best beginning point, but as you've already got some experience I suppose you can just jump right in! How exciting!!!  :heeha:

Should you have any queries, just sing out and someone will be about to lend a hand. I look forward to seeing what you have done and where you are going.... it's a magical ride here at PB. Come on in and enjoy!  :yippee:
