After looking at this canvas from yesterday I decided it needed more work. I highlighted several areas with gel pen, especially the green leaves by the butterfly and I highlighted other areas with white gel pen. First I covered the canvas with different color gelatoes and blended them with water and paint brushed over them. Next using distress inks I stenciled and stamped distress inks. The day before I had used modeling paste and a hexagon stencil to add texture. The stamp in the center didn't transfer too well so I tried to draw the missing parts of the image free hand. Wrote "enjoy" on the blank part of the stamped image and wrote "live love laugh" on a page from a book and glued it on. Glued torn piano music around the edges.

This is a delightful, bright piece of mixed media. I love it.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
