Each of their styles adds something different and amazing to their finished products.

    This is beautiful! What a lovely idea to combine your favourite quotes to your art pieces. I had been already thinking about taking some of my nature photographs and adding suitable quotes for my blog and Facebook. I feel inspired to go play!

    My first time here... enjoyed my little visit.

    Wishing you glimpses of 'heaven' in unexpected places....
