Art Journal Journey & Inspiration

So I stumbled upon this blog yesterday, Art Journal Journey.  Actually I found it on Jessica Sporn's blog and pressed the button.  It was meant to be.  I kept telling myself I am going to make a mixed media house, but never do.  So it became a challenge!
I had the perfect inspiration.  My sisters close friend Christine Nelson is a ceramic artist.  She takes classes at the same local art school that my daughter and I go to.  They currently have a student show exhibiting and I saw these wonderful ceramic houses.  When I looked at the name,  I was so happy, I know that person!  I immediately sent a picture to show my sister.  Her piece was the inspiration for mine, after all don't we all inspire each other!
Thank You Christine!!!!
