Day - 7 Funky Brayer Background and Geometric Shapes 
My stencils didn’t show up so I used rubber stamps instead. Triangular shapes are fun in this instance.

I actually used spray colors for this one and immediately saw roses to draw out.

“Name 3 things you are grateful for…” This is something my husband and I did each night of the pandemic to stay positive.
