I love all things arts and crafts. A friend of mine had done several of these types of projects and raved about how much she enjoyed them. I just had to try one. I saw this one and loved the picture so I decided it would be a good one to start with. I have to say she was right, this is very relaxing and fun. The kit contains everything you need to complete the painting and comes with complete instructions. I did find the color coded instructions a bit small for my old eyes.
