A List of Likes

I don’t know about you but I’m a “List Maker.”  I like creating lists because a) I have a poor memory and b) I like crossing things off my lists – as a feeling of accomplishing something – even if it is rather small.

The list I created here was a different kind of LIST.  It was an art form!

I created a list of what gives me JOY in an old book of names:

Jill's Joyful list in book

Sorry the light isn’t very good…

Here is a better photo:

Jill's Joys - painting in book

I started with while chalk paint and wrote into the wet paint with a pencil.  After it dried I added a dab of this and that to complete my list:

Of course I have more likes than what is on this list!  Perhaps I will have to make another “painted” list…

This was a lesson in the Word Play Painting online art class with the fabulous, Lynn Whipple!

I would love to hear what brings you JOY!  🙂

Happy List Making!

  6. I make lists, too. How wonderful to reuse old books this way. Gesso comes in handy. Thanks for the peek inside your journal. Wishing you lots of joy always! What a great idea – to list our joys. We should all do that.
