I am forever late for the More Than Words mini challenge. It sneaks up on you and only lasts for a week. This time I caught it. The word is Joy.

The background was made with transparent gesso through a stencil, acrylics and stamping for texture. The couple does not look overjoyed,  in old photos they rarely do - though the man does attempt a smile. Go have joy then!

  1. Oh boy! This pair looks as if they need to take their own advice! I love vintage, and I love the message! Happy New Year

  2. The glitter effect is lovely! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge! Awesome details and design! Super work!

  3. Their expressions have me laughing out loud. A great piece of art.

  4. Beautifully done. I love your unsmiling couple. It is true that smiling wasn't the thing to do when photographs were taken. Great quote.
