inspiration monday


once you've made a brand new journal, and decorated the cover
it's time to tackle all those blank pages inside!  if you're like me, this can be both exciting,
 and a little intimidating.....how do you know where to start?!





that's where inspiration will take the lead and remind you that the best place to start with any new project is at the beginning......






and at the Crawley house, the best place to start is the front door!
(and as a result, no more blank page!  woo hoo!)


{created in my downton diary using koi watercolor, derwent inktense pencils,
pitt pens, 6B graphite pencil, waterbrush}

In the beginning...
Lori this is going to be such a treasured journal. Your artwork and Downton Abbey together!!!

I have a question: what is the thickness of the paper on which you paint?
