Belief art journal page

"Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact." William James

I have a wonderful young woman in my life, I was there the day she was born, I am her honorary aunt. Two days ago her husband took his life, leaving her a very very young widow with two boys, 3 and 8 months. I made this art journal page to get some of my feelings out. 

I am entering this into two anything goes challenges, Simon Says Stamp and Show and Catch the Bug. I am entering this into Allsorts for favourite things, this has numerous, my favorite stamp is on the tag, I love art journaling, the paints and pearl mists. I am entering this into A Gem of a Challenge for lots of layers. I used matte medium to put a dictionary page in my journal, I used a post it over the belief definition, then I layered a couple of different paints on the page. Then added some new clip art from Mod Podge, I layered, inks and stamps and marker and even a pen.
