Artistically Inspired By - HAWWA, ETC

Chil'rens, listen up. I've recently discovered seventeen-year-old artist, Hawwa, through Instagram (handle: @hawwaetc). This gal is a veritable Insta celebrity with 30k followers, many of whom have joined her group because of her fantastic art-journaling. Hawwa manages to art-journal in a way not many people have art-journaled before. It's actually far more fun to look at what she has done than try to do it yourself, even though she'd probably take offense at that. I love browsing her amazing work and gaining inspiration for my own art journaling. Yeah, mine has a long way to come. But Hawwa somehow makes one believe that, given enough scrap paper, anything can happen. Here are some of my favorites (all art and photos property of Hawwa, Etc. and used strictly under the idea that she'd probably be okay with me fan-girling and giving her full credits.)
