Well, after my last post, I was looking forward to a month full of misting at Scrapgal.
Unfortunately, I received an email from the owner yesterday with the sad news that they are closing effective immediately :(
I will just miss the daily chatting with my friends over there.
I will miss the support and challenges.
I will miss the opportunity to start the new design team term with Cheryl, Martine, Lisa and Elizabeth.
And I will really miss working with Michelle and Rita. They have been such supportive teammates from the start!
I am so grateful to Jenn for giving me the chance to design for her store not once but for three terms!
In the mean time, I still plan on sharing my March design teams projects I had made for Scrapgal.
And some misting tips, tutorials and techniques.
Starting with this mini album that you saw in the peek on Monday :)
I was inspired by this poem/print by Alisa Holland that I saw on Pinterest...
here. I find her so inspirational.
For my mini, I wanted to use quotes from her poem and journal what it meant to me.
This was the hardest for me I think. I have dealt with people in my life who think nothing of using people to cause pain. And this was the so hard for me to understand. The need to have that much control, to be that bitter and angry that there was such an intense need to hurt. But with the help of good people in my life, I learned that there are just things that I myself can't control. And dwelling helps no one. Including myself :)
We are all human beings and deserve love, support, respect, kindness and understanding. Try as I may, I know I will never be perfect. But I know that judging others is the opposite of how I want to express myself.
I would rather express myself in a positive way.
So there you have it.
My first project for the month of March.
And it did involve a bit of misting on the front and inside cover :)
The cover went a whole different direction then originally planned. I had it covered in a piece of patterned paper and it just wasn't working. Thanks to a layout I had created, I decided to scraplift myself and use mist droplets on the white cardstock for the cover! Then some white mist droplets on the inside to balance it.
Come back next week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for my own version of "Mist Madness"!
