Be Happy

This is my niece, isn’t she just so adorable?  I made this layout for the Scrap and Music Challenge.  The fun part was to incorporate some lyrics from the song “Don’t Worry Be Happy” into your layout.  Here is the sketch:

I made the background with a strip of patterned paper that I went over with a light coat of gesso.  I wanted a heart stencil but I didn’t have one, so I used a punch to make a sort-of stencil for the texture paste I used to make the hearts.  I used 2 colors of mist and some random stamping.

I found an old clear heart in my stash and stamped Happy on it, and added a doily and the inside of one of the heart punches from the stencil.

I used a quote from Dr.  Seuss instead of journaling, because it went with the picture.
