This year I had so many ideas for my 2014 book and I finally narrowed it down . . . black and white photos and quotes. This is my start. The page design element of using the brushes to extend the photo was inspired by Arte's Scotland book. If you haven't already seen it, treat yourself and take a look. :O)

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. - Neil Gaiman
