SDC85 Whatever makes you happy

It's my turn to set the latest challenge for the  ~{Stampotique DC}~ and here's what I'm after:

we all have our problems in life, but life is short 
and we should find something
 to put a smile on our faces 
as often as we can. 
So whether you use 'happy' as your theme, 
your word or you use a technique that
makes you smile, 
show me your little bit of HAPPY!

I did a journal page:


I threw a lot of things that I love onto this page so I'm going to list them because that will be easier!!!

I'll start with the stamps:
Fresco Paints 
Texture paste through ~{Random Circles Mask}~
Gessoed book pages (for stamping on)
DI's as watercolours
Washi tape
and lots and lots of doodles!

And I find that the statement is true, Art is much cheaper than therapy and that's why I love it!!

Head over to the ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge Blog}~ to see what makes the rest of the team happy and then join us. If you follow the rules you will be in with a chance to win one of 2 radnomly drawn prizes of a $30 gift certificate to spend in the ~{Stampotique Store}~
