inspiration monday


this sweet flower was created at a quiet intersection by an unknown street-artist for passers-by to enjoy.....



and it also kindled this idea to use a variation of it with one of my favorite quotes and have some fun in my journal!!
 inspiration is everywhere.....and sometimes it's even on your friendly neighborhood street corner!!

journal page finished using scrap papers, chalk pastels, micron pens, 
uniball signo broad white pen, 2B graphite pencil, decorative tape
