|"Create Happiness" collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.|
It's that time of year again, when some of us create personal revolutions, based on Gretchen Miller's industrious inspiration. I really like Gretchen's Revo'lution*ary way of working with intentions for the new year. Do take a look at her blog and consider creating an altered book of intentions, it can be a very portable reminder to carry into the new year. This year I resolve to create as much happiness as possible. Why not? We certainly have enough sorrow, misery, and terror to go around, but I believe if we can bring a little joy and ease into our lives, then we can actually attend to sorrows a little more effectively.
So I took apart a kid's board book and looked through some found words that appealed, and then created the backgrounds and text. Then I looked for the little characters that I wanted for each page. Finally I bound it and digitized it. So it's available for download, freely offered, and it's got my 10 revo'lution*ary intentions for the year, plus art work of course. And as always I am indebted to FlyPaperTextures for my textural expressions and joy, and to Gretchen Miller for continuing to inspire!
