Happiness Art Journal page

 I have a couple of groups of friends that enjoy art journaling.
This group is new to art journaling and wanted to do some challenges.
My friend Lynne was the first one to pick our challenge and she decided on using a magazine and the word "Happiness"

I had no idea what I was going to do.
For one thing, I don't have any magazines...but I found a catalogue in the recycles 😉

I found these clocks in the flyer (catalogue) so decided to use them somehow.
As I was about to fall asleep, I came up with the saying "Happiness is Spending Time doing what you Love".
Now to figure out the rest of the page.

I knew I wanted to go more with the monochromatic look as my last page was so bright.
I started with spitzing my background with 2 different coloured browns and then used a stencil to ink the faint clock faces in the background.
I also cut some of these Tim Holtz clock dies out of black cardstock.
The girl was from a card I had made and given away years ago...I just did a copy of it from a photo of the card I took back then.
I then fussy cut the girl out and used her on the page.

Here is better close up look of the background.
I printed the quote up on my printer and then spritzed it with some ink sprays and inked around the edges with the same black Dylusions paint as I used on the whole page edges.

I thought I would share everyone's take on this challenge :)
I love that we each took it in a different direction.

I also did a process video with more detail.
If you would like to watch it on my YouTube channel, just click the link "Tracy's Treasures 24"

Thank you all so much for visiting me today.
I hope you all have a very Creative day.
