WWC - Mood Layout


Mikelle
 Share


For me, the past few months have been a mix of emotions, which I tried to capture in this layout. Ashe is also dealing with anxiety - she was just diagnosed with acute anxiety and OCD, and art projects have helped, which is where the inspiration for her challenge suggestion came from. My kids' worries are intertwined with my own, so this layout is a mash-up of us. I hesitated to post a layout with potentially divisive issues - but I tried to scrap this layout from a personal point of view and how these issues are affecting my family, rather than from a political point of view. I don't want to just document the happy in our lives - I want to document the reality.

I used a TON of different supplies, listed in no particular order: EMA Mixed Up background paper; DBH Dark Places broken heart; CKH Relax Restore flowers, word art strips (yoga, love), tree, and tree pose; DBH Melancholy sad line art, sad mask, sadness wordart; AHA Rainbows and Unicorns rainbow bow; hearts designed by me (Ukraine, trans, and demiboy); AMC Story Castle rainbow cloud; ABR Love Note grateful wordart; photos from the internet - the news article photos are credited on the layout in the accompanying text, and the iced mocha is from Unsplash, photo by Nathan Dumlao; Ro Classical Music piano wordart; CED Tainted Love WordArt music; Kimeric All About Attitude quote (people of character), wordart strips (I love my life, Integrity); BHS So Many Emotions word strips (Just keep going, take a deep breath, one thing at a time, So many emotions); BHS Forever Love WA strip Fur Baby, black cat, weenie dog; Fonts include Chunky Hulrey, Creamy Garden, Melody's Chatrina; Styles include SNU Autumn Watercolor, FlorJu Garden Party, Florju Fly Free, MPE Scrap It Monthly, BMU Glass Button, BMU Autumn Suede, BMU Fall Splendor, MRE Paper Tear, LAS Natural

This is awesome Mikelle and is a true slice of life and the times. I can feel all your worry and turmoil, it's a hard time and an especially hard week and I'm sorry to hear about your daughter.  Kids have so much to worry about these days, it's hard to be a kid.   You did a wonderfully  honest job with this and I appreciate you sharing it.   And I agree that scrapping is not always about the "happy".   Thanks for this challenge and your page.

I appreciate and applaud your honesty Mikelle. Our scrapping should, as Marilyn says, reflect our whole lives, not just the happy times.

Bravo. Well done. It’s this reason why I won’t do a layout, I don’t want to express my depression and anxiety at this time. Well done my dear. Hugs to Ashe.

Wow, where to start. There is so much to see. My granddaughter, Nikki also has acute anxiety and OCD so I understand completely what that is like. I really like your mood board.
