Art Journal – Live!

simple-pleasures

Hidden throughout this page are written some of the “simple pleasures” I value, such as:

  • feel the rain
  • pet the cat
  • smell roses
  • sip tea
  • sing in the shower
  • smile to strangers
  • laugh often
  • feel the sun

I wrote them with a white pen, but purposely wanted them to be obscure enough that someone would have to hunt for them.  (Click on the image to zoom in, to see how many you can find!)

The background for this page was a gelli plate image printed on an old dictionary page.  To that, I added collaged images, black acrylic paint sponged through a stencil, washi tape, and pastels.

The word “LIVE” was cut form a magazine and blended into the page with purple, white, and black pastels.
