Be True to You

I found this quote by Jamie Riddler
in the fantastic book
When I first saw the title of
this book, I thought:
"That's it. That is exactly what
I want to do!"
And reading through this book
has really put me in touch with
what I believe to be my
purpose in life.

So many quotes from this book
have resonated with me,
and I will be sharing a few more
art pieces and journal pages
featuring quotes from the book.

This art piece was created during
a fun art afternoon
with my sister in law and niece.
We each created our own version
of a tutorial from
Taking Flight: Inspiration and Techniques
to Give your Spirit Wings.
Here are their versions:

How awesome are those?

I love getting a few friends together
and working through a tutorial
like this.
Group art making is so much fun!

Do you have art parties?
If so, I would love to hear about them.

Have a beautiful day!

so be sure to follow the link
for some inspiration!
