Daily Journaling Week 10

I'm following the prompts of the original Documented Life 2014Week 10 : Make a list of things that make you YOU. I love that there are links from there to the original pages - so much inspiration...And from the blog for Life Documented 2017 HERE : 
Prompt: Secret Garden 
Technique: Collect all things floral and layer, layer, layer! Create a secret garden bursting with life!
I decided that I wouldn't add a flap this time, and I wasn't sure about the list making either since I just did a lot of self-love writing on my last journal page. So I decided to start easy by spraying dylusions spray on the right hand page and then closing the journal and brayering on the back of the page to transfer the gorgeous colour across.
Using paper serviettes is one of my favourite techniques for layering - here you can see the serviette with the flowers torn out. You apply gel medium to your page, then lay down just the very top layer of your serviette - it dries transparent to your page
Then I added layers of flowers in lots of different ways : paint through a stencil then outlined with moonlight pen
Simple collaged rose beneath more serviette, a stamped flower and a card with flowers on it that I decided I would add with matching tape already on the edge - my journaling about me on the back
Gorgeous gold for stamping adds a special touch
and then I added gold highlights with sakura gelly roll metallic, and you can see my own doodled flower and one stamped with white paint 
White pen detailing here & more gold
Here's the completed spread (click on the photos to see larger) :

So very pretty! I've only been gone two weeks and it looks like you've been extremely busy all this time!
