love me an altered book.
love me layers of happiness.
love me a class taught by maggie holmes.
seems i have stated this before, but i love an oppportunity to take a class taught by someone i respect and have a chance to play and create and just experiment with pretty stuff.
maggie holmes more happy little moments class is totally filling that bill for me.
this is one of those projects i just get to do for me on my own schedule as i get a chance.
we are taking an old book, and altering the life out of it with moments of happiness in our lives.
i chose some of the most recent photos i had so most of these are mothers day pictures.
not only are the memories creating much happiness for me, the simplicity of taking someone elses teaching and following it where it will lead is ever so therapeutic to me.
a little happy discovery for me is the Color Shine with stencil on book paper.
Maggie uses water color for her book.
but I to play with Color Shine AND the new stencils. because they make me happy too.
these pages make for a fabulous palette.
so what is making you happy right now?
you know...here is my little theory... there is plenty in this world that does not make one happy... plenty of reality we are always needing to deal with and manage on one level or another... this makes it so important to be watchful for those sweet little moments in one's life...
and then remember them.
