Positive words -Journal 52-week 30

This weeks prompt at Journal 52 was, ---  'Positive Words'   
We are up to week 30 and  well over half the year has gone. Its  been hot and sunny  for a while, here in the north east of the U.K. something we are not used to. 
So I decided that I wanted to use some bright colours for a change. The  flower was penciled in first. 
Next came my words, some are well hidden, but I know they are there. 
The background stenciling is random, some places had aready been shaded..
I did enjoy painting in  the flower with a few layers of acrylic paint. It turned out a bit larger than the outline.  I am not comfortable with  freehand drawing and much prefer stamped images [the bird is a fussy cut stamp].  So I have pushed these negative words aside  for this positive page.  

There is still a couple of days until the end of the,' Flower Power'  theme at
Art Journal Journey, so I'm off to share my flower with them.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
