This is not an original idea - saw it somewhere else. I found a roll of blue tickets at the thrift store. I covered the writing with matching paint.





(I suppose I could use gesso or white acrylic paint also.)

Then I cut tiny pieces of decorative napkins to fill in the rectangle space - I wanted to keep the numbers on the side so the pieces still retain their "ticket-ness." I cut words out of a book ("8,789 Words of Wisdom" - I used scraps that had already been cut up.)



I colored the words with Sharpies and Tombow markers - next time I will use watercolors for a more subtle effect.



These are fast and easy and I will add them to journal pages and happy mail. Just some silly little art.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I've never seen customized tickets like this before and that's a really neat idea.  Great job, and I like the positive messages/images you added to them--you could walk around dispensing "happy tickets" to strangers, lol!

That's a great idea - I usually hide stuff in library books for Free Art Fridays or Art Abandonment. If I hand them out, I have to actually look at people.
