Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Time to get deep. Put on your boots.
I'm sharing my last layout using the February Vulnerability kit from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. What a great and challenging emotion it was to scrap about. And so therapeutic! There is something I've wanted to journal about and let out and that is how I viewed myself way back when. It affected my relationships with others drastically and I'm so glad I can say I am "No Longer Playing A Victim".
All supplies are from the February Vulnerability kit. There are still a few left!
I love that pink was a dominant color in this kit. It is such a delicate color and I view being vulnerable as something very delicate. It isn't easy! And you risk so much by putting yourself out there. This kit also had lots of transparency elements which, I thought, carried out the symbolism of vulnerability because you are allowing people to see through you. To see your heart. Such a risky thing to do!
The design of this layout uses a sketch from Sketch for Scrapbooking Volume 7. Hmmm.. and I'm still waiting to hear back from Ginny who was my winner from the blog hop. Oh Ginny! If I don't hear from you by tonight I'll have to draw another winner!
But back to the layout. I wanted to take advantage of the color pink and the transparency for this confessional type journaling. While I'm no longer playing a victim and manipulating friendships, it's still hard to admit that is how I was! I did some hand-stitching around the edge to help anchor the layout. Sometimes using so much transparent elements can make a design look "floaty" and I needed to do something to ground it.
I guess I'm on a roll with blogging this month! Yay! I really do enjoy writing and blogging. There will most likely be a post everyday this week because I've got lots to share. :) Happy Hump Day!
