This week’s challenge in The Documented Life Project Art Journal 2015 is:
May Theme - Touchy Feely (Texture)
May 9 Art Challenge: Stitching
Journal Prompt: "All that I'm after is life full of laughter."
While I honestly believe that the quote that is presented for this week's prompt is a false philosophy, I realize it may be true for the original quote-er, so I'll take it only as a "prompt" (as it is intended to be) about laughter or happiness in general, and go with a favorite Bible passage about laughter and happiness, cheerfulness and joy. "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine" (KJV) or "A cheerful heart is good medicine" (NIV). Proverbs 17:22a.
For the stitching challenge, I used my sewing machine to apply stitching on each of four tags, onto which I stamped Graphic 45 “olde curiosity shoppe” stamps to illustrate medicine bottles.
Not only do I disagree with the quote in this week’s prompt, but I see it is a statement of a very empty and meaningless life philosophy. Seriously, that’s “all” you are “after?”
The source of my joy and happiness (and laughter) is the One who created me.
