Simply inspired

I collect quotes. 

When I came across this one it inspired a new collection. 
Here's a peek at what I've been doing and the quote that set me going.

Creativity is more than just being different. 
Anybody can play weird~ that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach.
Making the simple complicated is commonplace. Making the complicated simple, awesomely simple~ that's creativity. ~Charles Mingus, late American jazz composer

Sharyn, These are so pretty. I love the water color effect and the penmanship. Did you do that with a water color brush (the lettering)?

Sharon, They are letterpress printed from old lead type.

Thanks, Diane & Sharon!
