Celebrate Life

I'm sure by now you know I created this for Sheila at Orange Esmeralda, our wonderful host this month at Art Journal Journey with her theme Let's Celebrate.

I actually BLATANTLY stole borrowed (without permission) this quote from Marfi at Incipient Wings.

I printed the saying

then colored it using metallic Gelly Roll pens,

I used several acrylic colors to create and scrape the background directly on the book page.

I added three heart buttons to the mix.

"Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated!"

Thanks for joining me today at Art Journal Journey.  I am so grateful you dropped by and I also appreciate that you take the time to support my art.  Even though I may not say it often enough, I'm so grateful for each of you who visit.

That is a true fact Elizabeth. But way to easy to forget in the day to day of living. I love your background. It reminds me of those awesome eeling boat paints I photographed way back in September. Kind of grungy and yet gorgeous. Hope you found your holiday spirit seeing we are into the last few days. More snow coming down here right now. I think we should have a white Christmas since it is also suppose to snow Christmas day. (Of course then it can all melt:) ). Happy Friday. And have a wonderful Christmas. Hugs-Erika

Once again I will say how amazing you are to keep up with all the challenges that you take part in. I really like this art work. I find the background on this one very interesting. I hope to have some time playing with backgrounds soon.

Many thanks for all your Celebrations and for this one too. I think we are "allowed" to "borrow" quotations. This is a happy joyous page and I do like the way you have made the letters.
