I loved loved loved this class! The instructor Mou Saha is wonderful! The ideas are simple but so lovely. I love the feelings and sentiments on her pages and her lettering style is really captivating! I’ve taken about 6 other classes on Creativebug, and they were all quite good, but this is my favorite!
