Wanderlust Book Prompt - my past

Another tough challenge for the Wanderlust journal challenge but it's done. The prompt is "my past".  just that.. no more clues or hints or prompts.

 My Wanderlust journal is a 12x12 Kraft journal, but I painted the page white, then
started by stencilling flowers (Carabelle studios) over the journal page
however, decided the white background wasn't right, so painted the background black
I wrote the title in the middle of the black space and then picked some words names and places that have significance for me and wrote them on the page, then hid them all with paper flowers from my stash, toning them with the stencilled ones.

Found this really hard because I don't normally do written journalling.

yes, you can see the before too!

I love the flowers and the way they really pop against the dark background. However, I'm left with so many questions! How does this relate to your past?

The flowers look amazing against the black background, and I love the idea of the hidden words about your past under some of the petals.

Alison has taken the words from my fingers, lol! I too love those flowers against the black. I love the hibiscus stencil and nice idea to hide the words.
