January 7th: Scrap Therapy Your challenge today is to do some scrap therapy - my favorite kind of scrapping. I want you to scrap something that is weighing on your heart, and making it scream. scrap-therapy is there to get it OUT of your head and OFF your mind and onto "paper" so you can forget about it and move on! You know those exercises where you write down all your troubles and then rip them up, or burn them, thereby ridding yourself of them, that's what scrap-therapy is, except you get to be artistic with it and in the end, you have something beautiful to show for your sorrows and still feel better after! Now, this can be art-journaling type of scrapping, but it doesn't have to be, I've done an example of two kinds of scrap-therapy, just remember, to get some journaling on your layout, and try some symbolizing. When I do scrap-therapy, I don't always want the journaling to be easy for just anyone to read, maybe I don't even want to read it myself, just writing it down to begin with is the therapy. So I'll blend my journaling, or even cover it up with paint. Give it a try, there is no wrong-way to scrap these. I can't wait to see what you do! Here is an artsy take on scrap-therapy: and here is the traditional take: Have fun with this, OR better: let out some frustration or anger or sadness that has been plaguing you!
