Just before Christmas I posted that I would be starting to write a positivity journal in the new year. You can find all the details about it here
Having started before Christmas I have created several double pages already, but as from the 1st of January I have started to write down one positive thing that happened that day, I write my positive happenings on the tags that I create alongside the pages. I have really enjoyed the process so far, it's such a fun thing to do, I create the pages as and when the mood takes me and then every day I write down one good thing that has happened. Even on the busiest days that's easy to do, because really it takes less than 2 minutes.... the hardest part is probably to decide what one thing to pick, because when you start to look back over your day, there are usually so many things to choose from....
Anyway, enough talk, onto the today's spread:
1. Add some texture through a stencil
2 When dry, cover everything with Gesso
3. Add strips of Washi tape and in this case some scraps of a paper serviette
4. Add colour with Tim Holtz Distress Paints and Gelatos
5. Add background stamping.
Create vocal images of choice (I fussycut some elements from the G45 Place in Time collection as they fitted my mood right now)
6. Add shading around the images with Faber Castell Big Brush pens. As the pages are Gessoed, these blend beautifully when wet and when dry are totally permanent.
The tags were done in exactly the same way.
Here are some close ups still:
Several of you have been in touch to say you are creating your own positivity journals, so I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.
I'll leave you with a little quote:
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.
Thank you for visiting and see you next time!
