Misc Me Simple Abundance
Hello Everyone! It's Denise here today, to share some Misc. Me Mixed Media spreads with you.
I had certainly done some Misc. Me projects previously but I had not really got into the daily documenting of life. However, recently I read the terribly sad, yet inspiring post by Heidi Swapp, "My Heart...Cory's Story". It was in this post, that she stressed the importance of documenting those everyday moments. It really got me thinking and she also challenged everyone to documenting 30 days.
To be honest, I really don't think that I will document every single day, but I am decided and determined to keep documenting and to record those everyday moments. It may not be every day but it will be most days.
I also really thought about what I wanted to call this "document" and I decided upon "My Simple Abundance". I had previously read and loved "Simple Abundance" by Sarah Ban Breathnach and while creating my Misc. Me spreads I really came to see and appreciate my blessings, in this very graphic form. So this is really my 'graphic" version of keeping an Abundance Journal.
Firstly, here's the cover.
I did some gesso and crackle paste for some of the elements and then added some fussy cut elements, along with some stamping. I used Distress Inks to colour the gesso elements.
Here's the first spread.
Again, I used inks, stencils and some crackle paste for the mixed media effects.
Here's the flip side of the spread.
The stickable stencils work like a charm on these cards.
I then also added some crackle effects again too.
I really did have fun creating these spreads and I have created many more. So it didn't stop there!
I think that's an important thing too. If you are having fun, then creating is easy!
So perhaps I can challenge you to start "documenting" your Abundance?
Let us know how you get on.
Have a blessed and super day!
