inspiration monday


is everyone inspired to begin another great year of creativity?!!
there's nothing quite like a holiday break to get yourself rested and reacquainted with all of your favorite art supplies!
but before i jump into the new year, i have one project leftover from last year......
i filled up the inside of my orange journal last month, but didn't have anything on the outside.....so, here's a little doodle that i finished a few days ago for the front cover.....


                              

and here's a video i made to give you a peek inside, start to finish!
you can also watch it in larger format here at you tube.

i'm looking forward to spending this creative new year with you!!

Dear Lori,

Reading your wonderful journal was just like going to a counselor for me! Much needed advice. I particularly liked the "letting go of the life we have planned" and try to be who we are perfectly! Wonderful job as always, Lori.

Shelley Malone said...

Oh wow, is this is ever cool all seen together like this. So juicy and full of colour and beautiful writing... I admit that I'm partial to orange anyway, but you really rocked the look in here!

I would love to hold it in my hands, it looks like it feels great with all that gorgeous watercolor paper. YUM!
