Instead, this spine has a rather garish impression. The crisp elephant logo now looks like a partially thawed out woolly mam...

Hey friends, thank you for taking the time to read part one of this blog series, I hope you may enjoy the second installment of this series as well. This process has been as I expected more of a challenge in Maple…lol. But I realized it provided me the chance to have a stronger handle and learn more about how to work with this particular species.
