The backround is orange and a little white acyrlic. Then I stencilled the Mini Abstract Leaves by The Crafters Workshop in white and Delicate Backround by That Special Touch in orange.

The title of the page is 'Release' because that is what I felt when I had finished.
Have you finished a journal page and found you've got peace?
