Happiness .....Art Journal

Hello Friends

Today I am sharing a page in my Recycled cardboard Art Journal.

Here are my supplies to create this page..........
DecoArt Media Gesso White
DecoArt  Media Primary Cyan Mister
DecoArt Media Shimmer White Mister
DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics English Red Oxide
DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics Cobalt Turquoise Hue 
DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics Quinacridone Gold
DecoArt Glamour Dust
Hampton Art Stamp
Washi Tape
Camlin Gel Medium
Fiskars 'For the Birds' Stamp for the sentiment
TimHoltz Tattered flowers Die
Various Die cuts

I used white Gesso on my page, added various die cuts and some dry leaves with the Gel medium and various colors to get this effect , stamping with Quinacridone Gold and bubble wrap. I used the shimmer mister and white Gesso to get the desired shades. 

The image is a digital image from Nicecrane Designs  printed on my laser printer and colored using coffee......matted on handmade paper......

some lace, stamping with white Gesso and the Hampton Art Stamp and bubble wrap,washi tape, bling on the background and glamour dust on the image later.............

The sentiment is stamped on tissue paper and adhered to a recycled cloths tag which is distressed using acrylic colors.  The flower is cut from old book pages using the Tim Holtz Tattered flowers die, the flower center is an epoxy resin handmade flower colored using some metallic paint. The dragonfly is an Mdf piece also colored and glittered. 

some splatters using watered down Gesso to finish off.........

I really like the colors and the joys and happy memories of childhood and the association to simple pleasures of life this evokes !!
