If It Makes You Happy

Sometimes when I gather my supplies and open my journal to the next blank page, even if I'm highly motivated to play, I'm not always inspired.  Such was the case with this spread.  I always gravitate toward organic shapes and inevitably that usually leads to spirals.  Today was no exception and as I started making the first green spirals, Fiddlehead ferns came to mind and I began filling my space with lovely spirals along stems.

I cut red/pink/orange toned paper scraps into butterflies and embellished them with black marker and white acrylic and adhered them to the pages with Mod Poge.  This spread was an exercise in playing with paint while my mind drifted into blissful nothingness. Sometimes, if it makes you happy that's the only thing that matters.  "Happy Creating"!
