Feeling Inspired

I managed NOT to rush this week's Inspiration Wednesday AND get it done in one day!  

And it all started with Donna's fabulously FUN video, this photograph and the KEY TO THOUGHTS page.


It's a fairly monochromatic art journal page for me, but pushing beyond my norm is how I'm approaching Inspiration Wednesdays.  I like how it came out and was happy to use stuff that's been hanging around for a long time.

There's black lace, a gray tag, a fabric remnant, and book text over some gorgeous texture.  The texture was done with molding paste and some glazing of sap green and gray.

This photo caught my eye because of the telephone pole practically coming out of that man's head :)

You can see a bit of the texture on the page in this photo of my gray hole(not to be confused with a brown hole)!  Tag texture was achieved by crumpling it up a few times and spraying with water then I used some green glaze to mess it up some more.

So glad I didn't rush this page and will be waiting for the next Inspiration Wednesday installment patiently ;)

Are you playing along with Donna Downey too?  I am enjoy seeing all the fabulous art that is being shared on the Facebook page, it's inspirational...


  1. Love that crumpled tag and the subtle colours. It's fun to push beyond what feels comfortable because you never know what you might discover.

  2. Great pages. I love Donna Downey. She is such an inspiration.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
