Hi everyone, today I am sharing how I worked with the February prompt in my Book of Me, which is part of The Awesome Ladies Project. The February prompt invites you to document your life currently, along with a selfie photo. I also have journaled a bit about where I am currently in my healing process. Note: sexual assault is mentioned in this video.
My jumping off point for this month’s prompt was the Currently stamp and 3×4 cards available in Kristin’s shop here. This prompt is designed to give you the opportunity to document some things about your life currently.
I took the opportunity to also journal a bit about where I am in my healing process. Healing from any kind of trauma is ongoing, but sometimes things happen to bring it to the surface as well. For my journaling I wrote a bit about the things I am learning right now. I read the journaling in the process video, so I encourage you to read it there.
I printed my journaling on a sheet of patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes collection and added a tiny strip of washi at the top. I then backed the whole thing with another paper from Flourish. I love the black and white with just the tiniest bit of pink behind.
I wanted to use this fun little date die cut, it’s an old one from Studio Calico that I have been hanging onto forever. I added the month using some alphabets from Simple Stories and added a tiny chipboard plus sign over the month on the card.
I did fill out the Currently card, and slid it into the pocket page. I also created a little filler card with the black and white patterned paper plus a butterfly chipboard and little leaf. The leaf is from Freckled Fawn, although the Flourish collection has gold leaves in it too!
The photo is taken in my studio while doing chat videos for my classes. I also added a few more chipboard embellishments.
The back of the die cut is stamped with arrows from the Currently stamp set and a Studio Calico stamp in the center. And again, more black and white.
Thank you for following along with me today! I am loving this project and loving the prompts. I hope you are inspired too!
