After the birthday party I was able to spend a little time in the studio, so I began laying down a background for another layout in my “Happiness Art Journal.” The year is racing by, and I still have a long ways to go getting all my observations on happiness documented.
I started by using modpodge to glue down some checkered tissue and book pages.
Next I added some patterned paper then used a credit card to spread the first layer of paint over the papers.
The last step for tonight was adding a couple more layers of paint…
Hopefully tomorrow I’ll add some stamping and decide what observations I want to highlight.
Yesterday I posted my latest birthday cake, and I’ve had a few people ask to see some others I’ve done, so I’m reposting them here rather than send y’all to a bunch of earlier posts. I hope you enjoy!
Most definitely labors of love…
Today I’m grateful I live close enough to all my grandbabies to be able to do these little tokens of love for them. I hope that long after I’m gone they’ll remember that their Gaga made their birthday cakes for them!
