Who among us isn’t looking for calm, contentment and inner peace? So many ways to look
– meditation, prayer, therapy, self-help books, quiet contemplation, talking to a friend…but have you thought about using our wonderful craft to find your way to your core?
Mindfulness sounds esoteric, but it’s really just a psychological or spiritual way of defining being attentive, aware and thoughtful. This theme brings to mind how we find our center, explore our motivation and expand our consciousness.
Check these out these layouts using the MINDFULNESS kit from the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out design team – and make sure to look for the symbolism in each layout.
Design Team Coordinator Melissa Elsner explores the concept of being ‘in the moment’ on her LO. Her design floats in the middle of her page in an ethereal way, centered and focused. I love the long title and the message to herself – stay in this moment and take the opportunity to enjoy what was once only a dream…
Diana Brodeur celebrated and acknowledges her new found ability to balance her desire to care for others with self-care. She grounds her LO with earth tones and a layered yet centered visual approach – so meaningful!
Jen Matott centers her LO as well and creates a misted, artsy piece about being invited by her brother to walk to raise money for breast cancer research. Awareness takes many forms – breast cancer has impacted members of Jen’s family and the world at large, so Jen’s awareness is internal and external.
Mary Jo Rhoda, like many of us, is pulled in many directions as a wife and mom, and enjoys the challenge and the value of being with her family. She has become aware of her desires for a life in the working world once more in the years to come. Asking questions of ourselves is the first step toward our future. She uses frames and quotes to surround her thoughts on paper.
Kate Vickers creates another beautifully centered LO with a gorgeous cut and folded lotus design symbolizing balance. She wishes she could turn her mind off once in a while to avoid creating worry where there needn’t be. I can relate…can you?
