Today I choose Happiness...

Hi all, I have been wanting to get my sewing machine out and sew in my art journal for a while so this week it was time to do just that. 

I got 2 dictionary pages out and glued them on to a piece of cardstock with Helmar Decoupage and craft paste. Then I painted them with different blues in Decoart Americana paints. I used 4 different blues and blended them also with white to get different variations. Added some circles with a stencil from TYPO. 

I bought this wonderful word papers on clearance at Kaisercraft and could not wait to use it. So it went on the background over the piece of Hessian that I had added some gesso and paint.  I also bought the paper with the quote on, It was a 12 x 12 sheet with all different quotes cards. 

Will link this up with Paint Party Friday and Art Every Day Month and pop over and visit and see what you have been up to this week 

Have a great day
Vicki-Ann :)

Have you tried Periscope. I have been doing a few live periscopes and having some fun. I am very new to talking and painting, drawing and explaining the things that I am doing live. Chatting to people that pop on to watch and ask questions. I was live on periscope last Sunday morning using my small 3" x 5" Gelli printing plate.

If you would like to check out the Periscope replay <------- click..

I had fun and ended up with heaps of prints. I did some decortated envelopes for happy mail, worked directly in my art journal and some prints over some old card stock that I will add layers too.  I am going to use them in my art journal, letter journals and the deli paper ones to make some small bags to include in happy mail. I show the bags on the scope.  So it was a very productive morning now I just have to make the deli paper bags and they are so fun to make.

I loved the scrap paper that I had taped down on my desk (photo below) will be using that somewhere. I am so glad I popped a new piece down on my desk before I started.

Hope you can pop over and see the replay leave me some hearts by tapping the screen. Don't forget to follow me to get notifications for when I will be on live, so you can drop in and have a chat with me. Hope to see you there soon.

Have a great day
Vicki-Ann :)
