Page 4 - Positivity Journal

Hello everyone I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.  Shame that it's nearly over.
Sorry it's been a bit quiet on my blog but I have been quite busy in the background and soon I'll be able to share a little secret I've been keeping.   No clues, no hints, you'll just have to be patient for a few more days.  Sorry!!!  (I'm not really sorry, just wanted to peak your interest!!  LOL!)
In the meantime I thought I would share the next page for my Positivity Journal.  I did show you all a little peek at this a few days ago now here is the full reveal.

 As with the other pages, the background was created with Distress Inks.  The colours used are Broken China, Chipped Sapphire and Walnut Stain.  The splats were created with Walnut Stain re-inker.  To be truthful, I had a little accident.  While re-inking the stamp pad a couple of drops ended up on the page.  Thought it was ruined at first but then I added a couple more and it worked out fine!!  Whew!!  Sometimes you can be lucky.  hehe!!   
 I created the 'tree' using a free stamp from the 'Get Stamping' Magazine and some flower soft in 'Citrus Crush'.  The background stamp is the 'Crackle' stamp from Kaisercraft.
 The quote and key are Kaisercraft die cuts, and the clock and gear were  made from some free printable images.
 The circles were created by dipping a bottle top in to some gesso and also Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
 Just a closie of the background.  I love that you can still see some of the pattern on the paper that I've used.
Adds some extra detail I feel. 
And another page completed!!  

Thank you so much for visiting and enjoy the rest of the weekend.  What little is left of it anyway.
Take care and God Bless.
