Finding my way super grungy journal page 12-26-21

December 26, 2021 | 5 comments

Oh my, the grungy goodness on this page! This page felt like home…. it has so many of my favorite things.

Chalk paste, grunge, vintage paper, and I’m introducing myself to Pebeo matte paint and so far it’s a great relationship…lol.

I was reading this week and the phrase “finding my way” spoke to me…. I said out loud… “yes! that’s all we can do!”…. and I knew that this would be my page for today.

We each are finding our way through this glorious, hard, rich, tiresome, brilliant life that we’ve been given. No one has it figured out.

I always thought (when I was younger of course) that I would have things figured out at at 56…. that just makes me laugh now. The older I get the more I realize that we never “arrive”.

We are all finding our way, one day at a time.

I can’t wait to share this journal page with you and all the layers of it and the story.

I hope the video encourages and inspires.
