Puddles of Inspiration



Hi there.
I have a new journal page to show you.  
It rained here in Southern California all day on Sunday, which inspired me to paint the rain.

First I painted the clouds and added the rain and puddles with my white Sakura Souffle pen that I think I'm now re-addicted to!  I love the sheen of it against the matte background.  I wanted to add a quote about rain, but I couldn't find one that I liked, so as I was adding more rain and puddles I came up with this phrase...

"Fresh ideas
 Pour down like rain
Leaving behind 
Puddles of Inspiration"




But what good are puddles if you don't have galoshes? 
 Don't worry, I added some fun red ones that you can use!


So what are you waiting for?  Go ahead... put these on and jump on into your own "puddles of inspiration"!
