Hello Everyone! It’s Junell here sharing my August Light The Path project with you. These months are really flying by and my Light the Path album is filling up quickly! I love taking a look at all my layouts and creative projects I’ve done so far and seeing the growth and healing taking place. I’ve learned so much from Theresa and can’t wait to see what else is in store in the next few months! If you’d like to see more of what I’ve done with this project, follow me on Instagram here: @junell.kruzel. Let’s dive right into my August layout.
For this spread, I actually started with the right side. The digitals were created by Allison Pennington and they are just so fun! When I saw the THRIVE digital I knew I wanted to blow it up large and fussy cut the letters out. The sun was also enlarged and printed out. I adhered the letters to the sun page.
The theme this month is Your Future Self and with the THRIVING digital, I took some time to write out a list of what thriving looked like to me. I included things such as a clean, cozy, organized home, a loving and supportive marriage, authentic friendships, body positivity and acceptance, nutrition as fuel, exercise for my mental health, and also things like therapy and regular doctor appointments. Instead of just journaling in a list, I decided to write those items on the rays of the sun and I love how fun that is and how it looks.
For the left side of the layout, I used a pocket page.
I made a list of the long-term goals I had for my future self. Narrowing it down to three was tough, but if I get to the end of my life and accomplish these, I will be very happy and fulfilled, I believe. I fussy cut out some of the digitals to create my own 3×4 card for the right side pocket. I added some acetate hearts from Elle’s Studio to compliment what I had.
For the bottom 4×6 space, I took a series of five selfies… clean-faced, no makeup, and “unplugged” as Theresa said. Wow. This was hard. I made the pictures black and white, which mysteriously makes them look one hundred times better! I used the PicFrame app to put them into a 4×6 grid. Using more of the fussy cut digital pieces, I created a embellishment cluster at the bottom left of the photo. I just love the heartbeat piece!
Thank you so much for reading! I hope your Light the Path album is getting just as chunky as mine is!
