"Joy" art

I was inspired to make my own "Joy" artwork from all those wonderful ideas other people have posted. I kept seeing the word "Joy" and thought it would be nice to make one myself

I used some white adhesive vinyl, 
scrapbook paper, clipart and a wooden block I had purchased a while back from Hobby Lobby 
I painted the wood white and decoupaged a striped scrapbook paper on it. Once it was dry, I gently sanded the edges to get rid of excess paper and give it a nice grungy finish 

I cut my vinyl letters using my Cricut machine. I drew out the letters and used a program called "Sure Cuts A Lot", which allows you to use your computer with your Cricut 

I opened my clipart and sent it to print

You could find this clipart at Digiart Cafe 

Here I cut out my clipart with scissors and decoupaged the paper, letters and clipart to my wooden board
I placed it on a stand and that's it!
