Happy Every Day Canvas

Hello, hello!   We've had nothing but rain all day today, so it was a great day to sit down and do some crafting!  When I went to CHA last month, I received a package of small canvases - I never paint, or do mixed media, although I admire it, and have wanted to get into it for a long time.  I guess I've been intimidated, lol!   But today I figured, hey, why not!?!   It's about time!

I started by adding a layer of gesso.  Once that was dry, I smeared on some Faber-Castell gelatos and blended them with my finger.   I stamped the bokeh circles using the Winnie & Walter stamp set Scenery, Bigger Bang Confetti  and then stamped the 'Happy' from W&W's The Big, The Bold and the Happy  and 'Every Day' (I partially inked a sentiment to get just those two words) from The Party stamp set.   I thought it needed a little something more, so I spritzed the entire canvas with some Perfect Pearl mist and then used a white Faber-Castell Big Brush Marker to add some white highlights to my bokeh circles.   I really like how it turned out!  It's going to sit on a shelf in my craft room as a reminder to be happy, every day!
