    Your pages are inspiring and encouraging. Somehow I lost my own momentum in art journaling. Great to see yours, such wonderful colours and looseness.

    Awesome pages! The top one and the bottom one are my favorites 🙂 Also, just wanted to let you know, I saw one of your pages on a tumblr blog about art journaling! (she credits the pic to you, she’s not claiming it as her own or anything like that) The tumblr blog has a ton of art journal pages from many different artists and is super inspiring, and I was excited to see at least one of your pages there! Here’s the link if you want to check it out

    Hope all is going well for you! Sena

    Wendy shares several new art journal
    pages in this post. The prints I bought from her Etsy shop encourage my new work, as I write in my notebooks. Ellen

    I really am moved by pastel colors, they enrich life so very much, your site and your artwork is so very beautiful! To me i could really say it is breathtaking in nature. Ellen thanks for turning me on to such a wonderful site! And to Wendy thanks for the beautiful blessing this morning!
