Enjoy The Simple Things In Life

Made another page in my Art Journal.  It's called Enjoy The Simple Things In Life.  Life can be so complicated - and sometimes I just need to look for the simple things in life.
The background is made using two colors of paint, which I spread out over the page using an old credit card. The girl is stamped on using a Julie Nutting stamp called Chiara. I colored her hair, dress and shoes in with distressed ink markers.  I stamped on the butterfly, heart and swirly design using sponge stamps.  I hand drew on the flower, heart, tree and birds.  I then also wrote on the Enjoy The Simple Things In Life, drawing a square around here word.   I wanted to make the Enjoy word stand out the most, so I used a purple Gelatos stick on that.

I am entering this at:


  1. Oh, lovely art journal Debbie. The colours are too good and they form a wonderful base.

  2. Yes, we make life far too complicated and its so important to appreciate the simple things. I like your page and your hand drawn images.
