Art Journal #4

I have chosen my word for 2016...

VITALITY:  exuberant physical strength or mental vigor.
                  capacity for survival or for the continuation of a meaningful 
                  or purposeful existence.
I get all charged up and excited just reading the definition!

This is my art journal page with my Word of the Year.

The background consists of colors and patterns that I cut out of magazines.  I then went over the background with a little bit of gesso. 

I add stars with texture and then brushed over them with Wink of Stella gold. I then stamped a few images and added enamel dots in the right hand corner that I made from melting pony beads in the oven.
