Beautiful, colourful sketchbook page, Michelle. I love it. Did you use paints on this one or just pens/markers? :)

Both are wonderful...but I will choose bright colors every time. Nice to see someone else that sketches in those idle moments of waiting

I saw your beautiful art on the Creative Every Day link-up and had to come take a closer look! I adore the bright colors you used, and the lettering and quote as well. Everything works so well together on your lovely page!

And how awesome that you can reclaim some of that car time by being creative. I love that. :)
