Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's needing some creative time today! My soul needs some uplifting. I drove my mom to one my cousin's (her niece-by marriage) home about 75 minutes away on Saturday for an open house memorial for her oldest son who died of cancer in late September out in Arizona. I was 14 when her son was born. He was the first for his generation and he was adored from the moment when found out she was expecting him. I leaked tears and lots of drippy nose to wipe throughout the afternoon trying to keep a happy face as I was hugging my cousins and their children. Late last night I was replying and messaging to this 2nd cousin's widow who had received a 2nd card that I've sent to her in the past month. I'll have to send another one soon. And to her in-laws, my grieving cousin and her husband.
But meanwhile, I wanted to do some messy creative randomness along with using recycled kraft cardstock packaging.
So Thankful Autumn Harvest Art Journal page=
NOTE: the zig-zag marks are actually orange glitter paint pen; I didn't think it was neon but the scanner light has bleached it out to a very pale peach/blush color against the kraft cardstock.
