Well the weekend was cold, damp, grey and rainy so it was the perfect time to put a pot of pumpkin soup on get the house warm and have a play in my journal. The children were occupying themselves so I pretty much had a weekend filled with crafting. I untangled my laces and sorted them out into colours. Pretended to tidy up my art table but really just moved stuff around and the I got to it.
Over at Artistic Creationz over on Facebook they have a weekly mojo challenge. It's just for fun and just to get the juices going if you are lacking in the idea department. This week it was my turn to think up a challenge and so my idea was to use this beautiful and simple phrase in what ever project/creation they liked. BE THE LIGHT.
For so long I lived in so much darkness...things from the past that cluttered my mind and created obstacles that made it hard for me to let go and get on with life...I would have terrible lows and often even though I would get on with everyday life I felt like there was always and underlying sadness. It's taken a long time to push through a lot of that dead weight that kept me drowning...a lot of self healing and dealing with things that often made situations worse before they get better. Even though it is still a daily effort to control the anxieties and thoughts that go on inside the rewards of being able to smile honestly and enjoy things guilt free make up for the hardwork.
So with those words in mind I decided to get started on a Journal Page. Ages ago I purchased some Provo Craft Alpha dies...I don't spend a lot of money on craft supplies and have hardly any dies but I thought these would come in handy for so many things especially for my Journal Covers. Well after making such a carful practical purchase I then quite frankly forgot all about them and had never used them until I was having a wee tidy up and found them. So in some way I wanted to incorporate them in my Journal Page.
