Inspired by Art

The blog post today is two-fold, but it is all about being inspired by art.

I was asked to hostess this week's inspiration challenge for the scrapbookers over at SCS and you all know me...I love inspiration that comes from other's art! So I chose an artist that I just recently discovered, Anna Flores. You can see my challenge over on SCS HERE and you can visit a gallery full of Anna Flores creations HERE.

And here is the Anna Flores piece that I chose for my inspiration...
