A Precious Priviledge

The prompt on Colour Me Positive 2017 this week was: Appreciate what you have. I used a quotation by Marcus Aurelius which encapsulates that for me. Those old Romans knew a thing or two!
I played with some of my stencil collection from various sources for this spread. The original background was achieved with the L449 Blooming Where Planted stencil by Stencilgirl Products. I added collage to that with Tim Holtz's Postale tissue wrap as well as some washi tape,  and then over sprayed the pages with text using Old French Script stencil by Americana Decor from DecorArt.  I stamped on leaves (from a rubber stamp, no idea where it came from) and also added some circles with the Ring Hopscotch art foamie designed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.
I then blocked out the areas I particularly liked, using the black Art Graphite Pencil from Global Art and darkened the surrounding areas with blue paint. The text was printed out, glued on,  and outlined with a gold marker that I also put to use edging the pages.
Finally I used white, gold and fluorescent paint to add marks with the TCW2030 Burlap Bits stencil from The Crafter's Workshop, also designed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.
I hope some of the pictures will give you an idea of the wonderful shine the gold paint (by Pebeo) provides.

marvelous journal spread Frieda! I've often been tempted to try Pebeo paint.
