Happy - LO for More than Words March challenge

Hello crafty friends!

Another month, another exciting challenge at More Than Words!

Our Main Challenge is based on a Word Inspiration & a Creative Challenge.
This challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.

Word Inspiration - BLISS
Creative Challenge - GESSO

What does the word BLISS inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or to simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you
if it's not already obvious.

For our creative challenge this month, we want you to use GESSO on your project.
Chances are you have a bottle of gesso on your craft table, ready to be dipped into when it's crafty time! Be it white, clear, black or any other colour, light or thick, smooth or textured, we want to see you incorporate it in your creative process. Try it on your background, chipboard, embellishments or however you desire! If you don't have any ready-made gesso, you can even make your own!
(Google 'handmade gesso recipe' and you will find numerous alternatives!)

It's 'prime' time to get crafty!!

VERY IMPORTANT!!!  You have to incorporate both parts of the challenge, the word inspiration & the creative challenge, on your project to be eligible to win.  When we vote, we specifically look for projects that display BOTH requirements, and not just the creative challenge. Just look at our DT members' interpretation as example.

Remember that you must include our board image
and a link to our blog in your entry post.  
Please check out our RULES!

This is my interpretation of the challenge


My little boy is the epitomy of joy, laughter and mischief, always on the run and always happy. He really made a difference in our lives, bringing us so much joy! I have used gesso everywhere on my layout, clear gesso to protect my paper, white gesso to make random patterns on my paper and black and white gesso for splatters.

I used Prima Marketing "Stationer's Desk" collection, the dark colors matched my photo perfectly. 
I painted my gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard black and embellished it with Finnabair black microbeads. 
My background was made using Colourarte Burnt Amber pigment and Carmin Red silks. Clear crackle paste was also applied through a stencil for extra texture. 

Some close ups




There are amazing prizes waiting for you! Will you play along? We cant wait!
