Hello Stampotique fans!
I'm Ola Khomenok, living in Israel, almost 42 years old, married and proud mom for 2 amazing kids. I was a professional graphic designer in my past. And after my kids birth I became a full time artist. I love scrapbooking and totally crazy about mixed media. I also love teaching. On my YouTube channel you'll find a lot of mixed media tutorials. To create with Stampotique stamps is something new for me. But these stamps are so incredible cool, so I just had to challenge myself :)
