Inspiration Journal

Please take a moment to view the slide show below which shows the whole book, Thanks!

A number of years ago, I put one of these together, only to have it stolen at a CKC Convention where it was exhibited as a sample.  It took me a while to gather up all the quotes and finally, when I read Melody Ross's blog I was inspired to make a new one.  I was looking for something that would have a bold, fun, and timeless look and found what I wanted in three of the 2010 spring collections. I used some Melody Ross Homespun Chic papers, clips and especially loved her sayings, TPC Studios Boho Blooms, and K&Co's Serendipity 12 x 12 Specialty Paper Pack.  It is amazing how those three lines flow together!

Over time this journal will get add ons, tags, pictures, journalling and will become more and more personal. This is a moment in time in it's evolution.

I can only hope that my inspiration journal/perpetual calendar inspires you! Like Melody Ross, I want to be brave!

Holy crap! Someone stole your stuff?! You would think as a fellow scrapper, everyone (including the person who stole it) would be in admiration and respect when they see your work. I can't even imagine stealing someone's art! Nevertheless, it is beautiful. Everything you make in wonderful, but this one is a perfect reminder of your talents. :)
