MOC22 Jan 9 Year-in-Review
Happy Mama, Jan 10, 2022
I apologize for the very dark layout. 2021 was truly the worst year of my life. I had five different awful and traumatic things occur. I know the theme was supposed to be highlights and what you want to remember, but honestly there were none of those, so I went with just documenting how I felt each month about what was happening.

I'm participating in MOC this year to art journal and try to work through some of this and it surprisingly turned out to be pretty therapeutic to get these emotions out this way.

I took almost no photos, so I had to work with what I had (blurry accidental selfie and clouds etc.) and then fill in with some photos I took for this challenge: May, September and October - the trees in my backyard, and July is the side of my house (I recolored it pink). Hopefully this meets the challenge requirements.

      I understand everything you have shared in your journaling and comments. I'm sorry it was such a hard year and hopefully these pages you create continue to help you work through your feelings and offer ongoing emotional release and relief. This is a very creative page and extremely well done! I hope things turn a corner for you and brighter days are ahead. And I hope you continue to use art journaling to express your feelings. Thanks for joining in the challenge.

      I'm very sorry that you had such a bad year. I hope things are getting better in 2022! And I know how helpful and therapeutic it can be to express those feelings in art journaling. I didn't have such a bad year but some issues from my past that still influence my life a lot. I did some pages about those connected feelings and it felt really good. I'm glad that here are some designers who do great kits for expressing even such feelings and not just show the good times.
      But I totally love your page, the pictures are perfect for this and what you done with it is just stunning!
