Carrying on with the Happy Theme

I decided to make this canvas for my wall. It is full of pretty colours that lift me & make me happy.
I was so inspired by the front cover of Ali Edward's first book, that I copied the design onto my canvas & added more embellishements with it being wall art.
I use two photos of things that make me happy. They are both layouts I have made that I just can't stop looking at. The actual HAPPY layout i did to represent my chosen word & a recent UKS challenge I did about the birth of Singer sewing machines. I love the collaged look I achieved so thought that could go on too.
The light isn't too good so the pic isn't as clear as I would like it to be but this is going to hang right above me as I sit here on my computer, in the living room. I can see it where ever I am in the room & I know it will lift me up when I wobble..
It tooks two days to make & I was thrilled with the whole process. So making it made me very happy too. I never tried one before & I want to make more now. The only draw back is waiting for the layers to dry!!! I used very tacky glue which is fantabulous!!!!!! Things feel welded on now!
