New shop alert: Hugå Studio in Nicosia

This blog post HAD to happen. Why? Because there were signs. First there was the mention of Hygge on Weeds, which I started watching a few weeks ago.

Splatting. If you are game anyway, of course you don’t need a concrete wall to begin. Tape some paper on the wall or hang a big piece of cloth that needs cheering up. The end result is so good and it was fun for both of us. I think we’ll be doing it again soon but this time with another batch of colours.
