Circle Journal - Last One!

Here is my contribution to Shelby's journal - the last one for me in the circle journal I've been participating in.  Its been so much fun receiving each very different journal and seeing everyone's wonderful pages.

I wanted to use Brushos since the PaperArtsy current challenge is pigment powders and I've had some for ages and not got into them so it was good to get them out and have a go.

 I really like the quote which came in a PaperArty set.  So much of what we actually 'see' depends on our attitude in the first place.... we can look at a glass half full or half empty and its something I've been mulling over a lot recently.  I want to be someone who will see and make the best of everything, keeping a grateful heart whatever happens because I trust God to bring the best out of everything.

I wanted the backround to be seen through the flowers and Brushos worked well.  I sprinkled some on a mat and spritzed with water.  They are great for colouring texture paste too which is how I did the hearts:

What are the 'flowers' you've been seeing lately?
