Light The Path Design Team Ashley Krueger | July 2021 Inner Child

 

Hey friends! It is Ashley and today I am sharing my art journal-esque page from the July prompts in the Light The Path workshop. This month is all about honoring and healing our Inner Child. If you’d like to see more from this dynamic workshop, check out more of the Design Team pages here: 2021 Light The Path Design Team.

 

Light The Path 2021 Design Team Ashley Krueger July Inner Child Art Journal

The base of this page is a 6×8 cardstock page that came with my Simple Stories SNAP binder. Using a little bit of washi tape to mask off white space, I painted three bands for a rainbow. In the white space, I wrote in some affirmations that are specific to the parts of my Inner Child that I am working on healing. On the inside of the rainbow, I added a little bit of plain white paint as a spot for my journaling.

That specific year was when I started to learn that if I did not look, act, or dress a certain way people treated you differently and less than. It was a time that, instead of being proud of my uniqueness, I started to feel ashamed by it. In turn, I started diminishing myself and my individual needs. This is something I am working on healing.

On top of the photo, I added that affirmation flag. I finished the page with my journaling and a little cluster underneath. Both the sticker and label are from the digital kit as well.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my project this month!! This was a little bit of a harder month for me to document. My Inner Child wounds are still tender and an area I am actively working on, especially as they correlate with the work I am doing with my PTSD. The prompts and workbook in the workshop have been amazing tools as I explore these concepts and document them.

As always you can see more of my story and my other crafty work on my Instagram @ashleyamak and more of this album in the Light the Path workshop.
