I wrote in an earlier post that I would use the Moxxie "Road To Recovery" line three times. I made 2 cards with it last month and today is the 3rd time. It is an art journal layout.
As I said before, Recovery can be anything. Getting back on your feet after a job loss. A sickness. So many things can fit this line. I personally have been on a journey for 9 years and it isn't over yet. It never will be over. Not all illnesses can be cured. Some show you right away what the end of the journey will be so you have to make the most of your journey while you can. Journey's in general are always evolving. Sometimes writing it out on an art journal page is the best thing to do.
I started with Life's Gifts paper and adhered it to my journal. This paper has lines on it, like notebook paper, and an awesome saying "This Journey has not been a gift, but it has shown me what the gifts in my life really are." I sprayed blue Dylusions ink on the pages and let them dry. I wrote the saying on a die cut that goes with the set and adhered it to the page. I cut out one of the circles from the Journey paper and adhered it to the page. I loved that it said "My Journey" on it. I also added the circle die cut and a border die cut on the right, and the flourish die cut on the left. The circle flowers are die cuts that I wrinkled and inked and stacked. I finished off this layout with doodles. I always doodle when I make an art journal layout. There is doodling everywhere. That is a problem I have. I can't stop adding more doodles and details!! I used a Pitt Pen small for all of the doodles.
I wrote "This is MY journey and I can travel it anyway I want".
For my second project, as a Moxxie Muse, I stayed with the gorgeous "Road To Recovery" paper line. Remember, Moxxie can be found at your local scrapbook store or online, like at Scrapbook.com!
This line isn't only about recovering from cancer, it is any type of recovery. But, as with anything that you need to fight in order to recover, it changes you. And sometimes you feel like your beauty has changed and it is a very real feeling. I wanted to make this card for just that reason.
When you pick up the pieces after something life changing, remember YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! And just Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful!!
I layered 2 papers and diecut another for the center. I used a diecut border and ticket too. Then I added some ribbon, a flower and a few pearls.
Always remember to Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful! Because YOU ARE!
I'm so excited! This is my first official post as part of the Moxxie design team! They call us "Muses". Super awesome!
I was given several amazing lines to use and this one just spoke to me. I always say, the paper speaks to me and shows me the direction to go in. In addition to this project, expect to see at least 2 more projects with this line!
This line is called "The Road To Recovery". It is a beautiful blend of blues, yellows, whites and grey. There are graphic designs, awareness ribbons, and delicious doodles! I made this card.
I am just so Thankful to be part of this amazing team!
I double layered the 2 background papers and diecut the third. I used 3 flag diecuts on the side, the scroll diecut on the bottom and the fancy circle with frame diecut. I stamped the sentiment in the center and added the ribbon, flowers, wood embellishment and pearls.
