Get Messy Thursday- Season of Happy Week 6
I actually only got 1.5 pages done this week. I've been working on other projects and woke up with a cold yesterday so I didn't get as much time in my journal as normal.
Nonetheless, I am super HAPPY about the pages I did make. Happiness is my goal in life and this first page is all about what happiness is to me.
The background is a gelli print, and I painted gesso around the edges so I could journal on top.
The girl is actually a part of my 365 sketchbook project, I drew her earlier this week and then decided she would look good in my journal, so I printed out a copy of her to use.
Now, I said I made "1.5 pages" this week, because on the page below I actually painted the astronaut girl weeks ago but never got around to adding anything else onto the page until yesterday when I wrote the "I could lose myself in the stars" saying.
My astronaut is actually inspired by a drawing I had seen on instagram by bokkei. I love her style.
What makes you happy? A good book and a cup of hot tea? Puppies? Star Trek episodes?? (Oh wait, those are all my happy things....)
