This was so easy to make… it was pure play time. I love the contrast between the grungy background and the bright fun flowers.
The collage papers used in this piece are just gorgeous and the perfect start to this piece.
I was inspired to create this by a conversation I had this week with someone that was struggling with joy.
I got to share my take on joy and how I think it’s not this rah rah happy thing,….. but it’s peace and a place of gratitude. And that it doesn’t just happen. It takes practice. I share in the video, my number one thing that helps me be in a place of joy.
