More on the Positive

Hello again everyone, I do hope you are having a fabulous day!!!  I'd like to welcome my lovely new followers too.  So glad you decided to join me ladies, I really appreciate it!!
I'd like to share the next page of my Positivity Journal with you today.  
I have been doing quite a bit of creating lately but most of it is Design Team work so I actually can't share that with you all  just yet.  I was able though, to do a bit more work on my little Positivity Journal and that I certainly can share!
So, first of all, here is the next page!!
Started the background with some Acrylic paint which I mixed myself using Vermillion and White and then watered  down and poured into a sprayer.  Then I added some Walnut Stain Distress Re-Inker.  I simply popped a few drops on the page and then sprayed with water to make it spread.  Was quite pleasantly surprised that it worked so well and love how it turned out.  Once all that was dry, I stamped with Kaisercraft's Arty Stamp and Memento Fade Resistant Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black.
 Popped on some washi tape and a little tag and then added a Prima Flower and a KC diecut which I think came from their 'On this Day' Collection. 
 The chippie is a piece cut from Imaginarium's 'Moroccan' which was painted with white Acrylic Paint and then clear embossed.  The little blank was coloured with Crushed Olive Distress Ink and also clear embossed.  I'm not putting a lot of embellishment on these pages because I really want the backgrounds to be the focus.

And now the first of my tags.
With these I discovered I also couldn't add much in the way of embellishments.  As I want to put 3 to 4 Tags in each pocket they really can't be too thick  so I'll  have to keep the embellies down to just some stamping with perhaps the odd die cut or two.
The flourish was  stamped with embossing ink and then clear embossed.  This stamp and the butterfly are from KC's Tiger Lily Collection.  After embossing I coloured this corner of the tag with Distress Ink in Wild Honey and then with Fired Brick .  Love the way the stamp just stands out.
The butterfly was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I was going to colour it but decided I liked it just the way it is.  The sentiment stamp is from KC's Blubelle Collection.  
The backs of the tags will be left blank  so I can do all my Journalling there.

I may have said this before but I'm really enjoying working on this Journal since I started over.  The pages are so much easier to work on and the tags are a much better size as well.  Am loving this!!

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care and God Bless.
