* Path of Positivity: Relax, Try Something New


Today is the start of a new Path of Positivity challenge.
The challenge lasts for the month of June.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of 
Try Something New.

Prizes this month include:
  • THREE digital images from Pattie's Creationsour guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.

Our optional theme this month is 
Try Something New
This could be trying a new craft technique, or designing a journal or scrapbook page. Or, like me, it could be a new life experience. Reach out beyond your comfort zone - feel proud and rejuvenated.

There are so many ways you can interpret the optional theme this month. We are waiting to see your take on the theme.

Please remember ...
... in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way. 

My 'try something new' crafting technique is using the tall alphanumeric dies added to foam for dimension. I am also trying a new self care regime from this month as I need to relax a little more and get to sleep a little earlier, so I am using aromatherapy and with yoga and meditation music to help. The lavender posy is perfect for depicting this new regime, as lavender oil promotes calmness and wellness and is believed to alleviate stress.  My word 'relax' is short enough for me to try the new die technique.

Here is the card I made with Lavender Posy from Pattie's Creations:

I coloured the lavender with Copic markers and fussy cut it leaving a thin white border. I made a background by smooshing, dipping and dabbing white card in Distress Oxides. When the oxides were dry, I added some deep purple vine stamping around the edges and a little random script stamping in navy blue. White splatters were added.
The letters were die cut from my oxide coloured card and also again from black foam. They were adhered together and coated with Glossy Accents. I am really pleased with how they turned out!

Many thanks to Pattie's Creations, this month's guest sponsor,

and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
