Inspiration Exists…

Marjie Kemper art journal - Inspiration Exists

Picasso said those words, and PaperArtsy made them into one of my favorite mini stamps.  This is a loose page from a 6X8 handmade art journal. I used Distress Inks and Archival Inks, and the extra large flowers are a Donna Downey stamp.  I’ll link to AJED and to Brenda Brown’s Visual Journey.

  15. In some ways this is so simple and in others so intriguing Marjie. And the sentiment… it’s so true. I had a project base – knew the requirements but just couldn’t start “building” it… finally – deadline – soooo just STARTED… and guess what inspiration found me working! I never really understood it so well. Really lovely creation and definitely INSPIRATIONAL. j.
