Happiness is a butterfly

This piece was created on the cover of a journal I gave to a dear friend.

It was inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s quote:

“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,

but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

To create this cover, I sanded it and painted it with a Sky Blue acrylic paint.

Once that dried I used Mod Podge to glue the vintage image of the little girl onto my sky background.

I then found a butterfly sticker and added it to her shoulder.

With a waterproof pen I wrote out the words “Happiness is a butterfly.”

The entire cover was then sealed with Mod Podge to finish it off.
