Colour Me Positive Week 5

Here is my art journalling page for Colour Me Positive.
 I took a long time to do the background as it has several layers. First I put tissue paper for texture, then a layer of gesso, then watercolour. I was going to put another layer of gesso and only leave a few patches showing, but decided to follow the prompt for bright colours. I used stencils for the letters. The hearts are stamped and coloured with markers, one is stitched in kantha stitch. The one in the top right hand corner was made with layers of fabric and paper collage, with top stitch.
