Seeing within

Happy Thursday!  Life has been super busy for me over the past couple weeks but I must say I just love when it’s my turn to host the eP blog.  It pushes me to create, get my fingers covered in paint and loose myself in my art studio. 
So, I have a bit of a confession.  I have a “thing” for vintage books.  Recently I went to my local vintage market and scored some books to add to my collection.  This is one of my new little gems.  It’s just adorable and the perfect size for a little art journal. 
 
 
Of course because I wanted a tall bouquet of flowers, so for this page, I had to flip the book....but I kind of liking.  I'll add some personal jounraling to the page later. 
 
 
Thanks for visiting the eP blog today and I hope I was able to inpsire you just a little bit.
-Michelle
 
Here’s what I used:
Various Faber Castell Pitt Markers, vintage book paper, vintage sewing pattern and glitter
