"Fly Me to the Moon"


Irene's Journal Page
Approx. 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 "
(Click on a star to see the details!)

One of my latest "Teesha Journal" swap pages just happens to answer the star themed challenge at the Three Muses this week. This journal page features white gel pen stars that glimmer in a lemon-lime sky.

Our journal swap is beginning to wind down, and it's amazing to see the fabulous assortment of artistry and creativity contained in each of the journals I've received. It's also interesting to note that each has a distinct personality. Seeing other artist's creative work always inspires me to try new techniques and ideas. I'm wondering, what inspires you?

Hope you find inspiration today!

What an adorable page. I was drawn to the parrot, which I realize is only one of the beautiful pieces in this piece. Of course, your man in the moon is adorable. Gotta love it, especially since I now own one. Thanks again for being such an inspiration and such a great artist. You really pack a great goodie bag.

YOU dear Terri, inspire me, so much so I have recently cleared my work table, bought white gel pens and a journal and now I am just finding the courage to make that first page. Oh I so hope I get the courage this week.
Your interpretation on this week's theme is magnificent.
