Positive Thinking – Positivity Journal

Here we are again with another altered playing card as promised  – this time with a new colour background. You can see the partner one here if you missed it before, it's much grungier than this one.

P1180042

The background had been started some time ago and I think it was made using watercolour crayons and masks, but I’ve added more on the top with stamps and tissue tape.

P1180096

I really like the red heart with a predominantly pink background ……

P1180100

….. and all it needed added was a small die-cut and another of my computer generated quotes. I rarely watch the news these days because of all the ‘bad’ news they report on, so this is a great reminder to stay positive in myself.

P1180101


I am now back from holiday and have got most of the washing out of the way. I have some important projects to get finished and then I will be round to visit everyone again - poor wifi and Ipad problems resulted in me not being arable to keep up with all your wonderful makes whilst away so I am sooo looking forward to catching up.

Have a creative day and enjoy the rest of the week.

Lovely project, Brenda. I'm hoping to try with an art journal soon too. So many techniques to try! I bought a journal, but that's it so far. Life keeps sending me curves...

Enjoy seeing your card alterations & pages :-)
Hope you are getting back to normal now the hols are over - it always seems to take me at least a week to get straight...so that means only 3 more days to finish putting stuff away!
