Word for the year journal page

I have been choosing a guiding word for the year since 2014 and have found it to be a rewarding experience each time. This year my word is Flourish and as a way to focus a bit on what the word means to me, I created an art journal page. Below I’ve shared how I did it!

This yellow is wonderfully transparent so I was able to still see all of the designs already on the page.

I used the Positivity and the Dutch Spring 6×6 stencils along with Raspberry acrylic paint to add another layer.

Now I have a great visual reminder of my word to focus on as the year progresses!

  1. Beautiful Consie! My word for the year is liberate meaning that I need to come out of hibernation and start living. I have the choice to do or not to do, I’m throwing off my restraints and liberating myself!
