Art Journal: Happy Life

Happy Life was originally posted in July 2008... the first full month of Daisy Yellow!

"One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats."
Iris Murdoch

9" x 12" watercolor paper, scraps of cardstock, ephemera, white gesso, neocolor II wax crayons, Golden fluid acrylics, gel medium, alpha stamps

On this page, I worked from the outermost edges, adding mostly scrap cardstock and a bit of ephemera in something of a frame, moving toward the center over the course of a few days. The surface is uneven with many layers, some hidden from view.
