I started with a painted background and used one stencil for all the stencilling I did on it. It is the Swirly Floral one. It's very versatile and there are little whirligigs (as I call them) hidden within the stencil. I found a very suitable quotation by Robyn O'Brien that reads: "Your power comes when you love without hesitation".
That determined the images I selected for this page and collaged on as shown. Love got a mention three times and also fulfilled the requirement for thread as the paper love words were stitched onto a hand painted fabric which was in turn glued onto the spread using matte medium.
I shouldn't say this because you wouldn't know anyway simply seeing the photographs here but this spread is upside down in my 8 x 8" Dylusions journal. There is always at least one in all my journals. You would have thought I might have learned that lesson by now, but no! When working away on the pages I seem to forget about checking that little detail.
