Hello Lovely Butterflies!
Can you believe it? Challenge week 51? We did it, our first year of A Layer A day, our first year of alad challenges. We're not completely there yet, one more to go before we take a break to celebrate the old and the new with our family and friends.
To celebrate the old, how about a little attitude of gratitude? Let's say goodbye to 2018, feeling grateful for all the good things it brought us. I'm sure there most be something to feel grateful for!
Before I show you what Butterfly Squad member Marit has to tell you about the challenge and in case this is the first time you read about it, check out the first blog post on the subject here, where we explain what it is all about.
You can join the fun at any time on the France Papillon and Creative Butterflies facebook group, where lots of alad spreads and in between layers get shared, which will definitely help your mojo to be inspired!
Thank you 2018
Because we want you to fully enjoy the Holidays and spend time together with your loved ones, this week is the last challenge of 2018.
And wow… what a year it has been. Think about what happened for you this year.
A lot has happened for me anyway: joining this team, getting married, I quit my job. Just a few to mention.
Think about what happened for you this year. Are there any memories, changes, things or feelings you want to journal about?
Or take a look back at your artwork from this year. What do you see? Is there something you’d like to try again or things you don’t want to go back to? How do you feel about it?
Pick those memories and feelings and let them sink in. Is it something you want to journal about? What colors come to mind? Which shapes? Or perhaps a technique or a certain stamp?
Play with those thoughts and things and show them in the Facebook group. I’ll be there to help you and cheer you on.
Jane invited us to break free last week.
I don't know if you saw all her in between steps on our Facebook group but she definitely broke free in her journaling and put it all on paper, as her spread is showing. I just love it!
Just look at it!
