Artist Bio 

Hi friends!  I'm glad that I was invited to do a project for the 150th anniversary challenge:)  My name is Yulia Popkova (Krestnikova).  Scrapbooking is my favorite hobby and way of life:)  I live in the suburbs of the wonderful city of St. Petersburg. My family is a beloved husband and three mischievous fluffy chinchillas.  I love art in its various manifestations - scrapbooking, mixed media, altered-art, decor, artbooks.  I like to make cards, decor, layouts and my favorite art techniques are mixed media and stamping

My postcard about the fantasy world.
We dream, we go to our dream. 
150 - this is probably how many cards I made during my hobby for scrapbooking:)

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous postcard with us Yulia - those colours are amazing!  We hope that Yulia's take on the Mini Challenge inspires you to enter this month.
