I so know what it feels like to feel Inspired!  I am back and catching up from my week at Donna Downey's Inspired Artist Workshop in North Carolina.  I was among so many creative and inspiring people.  Everyone attending is excited.  I took the Inspiration/Gratitude Journal to a whole new group of people. It is so true that Inspiration is catchy and is one bug I don't mind getting!  I got to take my Inspiration journal to a sold out class and we had a great time! 


So it is time myself to get back at it and share some new pages of my own!



  • Helmar – Liquid Scrap Dots, 450 Quick Dry, Decoupage & Craft Paste
  • Acrylic Paint - DecoArt & Golden
  • Mists – Tattered Angels
  • Charcoal Pencil
  • Inks: Daler Rowney
  • Water Color Crayon – Faber-Castell 

I am loving all the inspiration that is spreading and have so many pages/albums to share that you guys have been emailing me! Keep them coming.  Like this one from Shawna Rae

"Hi Tracy… just wanted to share the front cover of my journal with you. I used Helmar's crackle medium on the face of the clock and it turned out sooooo good. I've attached a picture of it… not sure how good it really is. This inspiration journal comes at a wonderful time for me. My current job will be coming to an end in about 4 months – my "time" there is running out (the thought behind the clock). I will need daily inspiration to make it through this phase of my life so I know I will really be working this project…..the carefree creative part of this whole thing is what makes it so much fun and relaxing. Thanks for all you do – you really are a true inspiration." ~Shawna Rae




So beautiful Shawna Rae! (and my fingers are crossed for the right job to come your way!)

If you have taken my Inspiration Challenge (click for details as it is not too late!) and you wish to share your pages with me so I can post them here please email them to me at [email protected]

Have a very Inspirational Day!
