although this art journal entry is small in size, the message is larger than life. when was the last time you laughed until your sides hurt? me, just about everyday and it is usually something little that makes me bust out laughing. when creating art, texture is so important to me that i find many ways to incorporate different ones. the raffia tie, the metal charm, the little staple, a found tag - they all add up to loveliness in my book. i love all the elements and the mood they create and well, the message just can't be beat. go out, listen and laugh out loud!
