Beauty From Pain: A Grief Journal

 The Journey

I mentioned before that I dealt with a miscarriage within the last 2 years. You can read about my journey through grief and art journaling in the Summer 2016 issue of Stampington and CO Art Journaling. Here is my journal in it’s entirety with the exception of one graphic picture of my baby.

I hope this can be an encouragement to you. Art can help with the healing process but I have found in my life that the only one that can completely heal is Jesus Christ. My heart still hurts but each day the pain becomes a bit more dull.

I would enjoy seeing or hearing about how art has helped you in time of grief. Feel free to email me.

The Album

I made this album using manila mailing envelopes. Pieces of cardstock were cut to the length of the spine. They were folded in half and attached to the envelopes in  accordion style. A pretty simple technique and it allows for all the pages to open completely.

Warning: Picture Heavy
