    Truly honored with the 3 picks of my blog “PaperArtView” for this January 2014 issue. I’m still wildly excited to continue this paper art-adventure and happy you support it in this blog carnival. Wishing you and all art-lovers and of course all art bloggers, a fantastic New Year! Hope all your dreams come true!

    Kind regards,
