Art Challenge:  Stitching
Journal Prompt:  "All that I'm after is life full of laughter."


Laughter is a balm to my soul. I love to laugh until I can't breathe and am deeply concerned about damp panties.

I started out by journaling diagonally across both pages about laughter and love in my life. Adding white paint over it toned down the deep contrast of black on white.

I had a stack of gelli plated pages that I have been saving for "the right project".  Yup, hoarding. Tearing them in strips and stitching them together with variegated thread (love) was my happy place for the day. This made me seriously giddy. I had to stop myself before I stitched up something wall hanging size rather than journal size - not a bad idea though!!

Seriously gorgeous. I want it in a quilt for my bed and a throw for my couch and maybe a jacket.

I added a word tag stitched for decoration.

I loved the simplicity of this with its almost Asian flair to it.
