Maggie and Stephs Art Journal Spoiler Alert

This is Steph's Journal. Isn't her cover just gorgeous?! She wrapped it in one of her painted canvases. I am so taken with her paintings. She is uber talented! Uber...not sure that is a word? But you get the idea.
The prompt Steph gave us was to do something that represents what inspires you/your artwork. Well nature inspires me. Swirls appear in every doodle I have done since I was little. I also love color and inspirational words.
 I chose the quote: "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom". Marcell Proust  Stephanie and I love to garden and her blog is named Dragonfly Studios so I included a dragonfly.

 This is Maggie's beautiful cover. Isn't the color so vibrant and happy?! She painted it inside and out with these gorgeous rich colors.

 Maggie loves the sea and so I decided she needed a little bit of the summer to keep her warm during these fall days in Pennsylvania. Look there is a playful sparkling mermaid splashing in the water.
 The quote I chose for Maggie's pages is by none other than Jacques Cousteau himself. Who better to quote than that guy, huh?.

 "The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in it's net of wonder forever" So true, so true.
