Wow, it's already mid-October and time for another Path of Positivity post; this month is flying by!  

Continuing our 3 Month Series over at Path of Positivity:  Surround Yourself with ...  this month we are thinking about Literature!  Surround Yourself with Literature!  The idea is to share how you are inspired by the written word in any form!  Anything from Shakespeare to Saunders; Stan Lee to Plato; Agatha Christie to Emily Dickinson; cooking to car repair; religious studies to Toilet Paper Origami (yes, there's a book for that!) we want to know what you read to feel positive and how it inspires your creativity!

Next to all my children's books are books about horses.  Everything from college text books about Equine Science to Equine Philosophy/Quotes; Horse Paper Doll Books to Trivia; Training to Cartoons!  Yep, I have an entire bookshelf devoted to it!  I have horse books in the bedroom, barn, my art room, my music room, the family room...they're everywhere!

I chose to use the digi Dream Catcher Maiden from Sparkle n Sprinkle to go along with the quote by Pam Brown.  This image was a great inspiration for my Equine themed art journal.  I think she is adorable sitting there in the dream catcher.  

I started by designing my page in Design Space and cutting all the pieces.  While cutting, I did some stamping and inking on the background pages.  The digi is Copic colored with the addition of some gel pens and Glitz Glitter Gel.

I used Cricut Cuts from:  Old West, Heritage, CTMH Artistry, CTMH Artiste.  The  background of the image is a frame from Polkadoodles.  All papers are retired from CTMH.  The stamps are also retired from CTMH.  

The dream catcher caught some glass seed beads and Recollections Copper Brown Chunky Glitter.

Our challenge this month is sponsored by Sparkle n Sprinkle.    

Thanks for stopping by; PoP on over to the challenge (where you can learn more about our theme and sponsors) to see what the rest of the team is doing and share with us your thoughts, art, and inspirations!  Our themes are optional now, so we'd love to see anything positive you've been working on even if it doesn't exactly fit the theme.
