Panpastel UK Challenge Blog - # 13 Anything Goes
Anything but a Card - Challenge #16 Who/what are you inspired by?

I am inspired by quotes.
 I love them, they make me feel happy, motivated, reassured and inspired.
One of my favorite activities is surfing Pinterest and collecting quotes, if you look at my Wall Hangings at the Art MoB tab you will see some of my favorite quotes that I have used.
I have also made quote books in the past, to keep my most meaningful quote always close to me. 
 
 
Had a real good time mixing paints and spray to get this background.
 
May Arts -leaf/vine  ribbon
Ranger - Distress paints and sprays
