Make Your Own Happy

Give yourself a little visual sunshine today by checking out  Joanne Sharpe's Whimsical Wednesdays.

Joanne is an artist who lives in Western New York.......a land known for its lack of sunshine and lake effect snow.

She counteracts the location's dreariness by donning color splashed leggings and house shoes while creating upbeat treats for the eyes, spouting the mantra of "Make your own happy".

I was inspired by her concept of "MINI MOMENTS" PAPER JOURNALS where she encourages her followers to, "Make a little bit of art every day, in a little bitty size".

Since I am a fun artist, not a fine artist, I found this to be a quite doable endeavor.  Here is what I've done so far.

I cut a sheet of 9 x 12 watercolor paper in  half,  folding each half into fourths. Then I played on only 1 of the 4ths each day.

I used Tombow markers to "frame" each 4th section, a butterfly stamp and some collaging from a seasonal missalette.

Here's my current work in progress.

Thank you Joanne Sharpe for the inspiration and upbeat advice. 

Here' s a link to another fun artist trying out Joanne's idea.:

Doing fun art is always a happy experience. It is not about creating a perfect masterpiece but it is about creating something that is fun and happy. It doesn't have to be profound or thought-provoking like the art pieces we normally see in museums or art galleries. Fun art should evoke positive feelings instantly upon seeing it. No need to analyze how it should be interpreted. They say fun art is only for kids. I say adults should do fun art to experience good and positive feelings.
