Craft Stamper TIMI - July Challenge (believe your best state of mind)

Believe your best state of mind

The title says it, today I am sharing some challenge inspiration for this month's challenge over at the Craft Stamper blog. I've made a mixed media card with lots of mediums, paints and layers. The stamps I used are from AALL and Create. In this piece I made the lines chaotic and blurry, but with bright and hopeful colors. And there is a story behind the sentiment too.

Believe your best state of mind
The sentiment was inspired by a story one of our CSTIMI DT members shared about her depression and how difficult it can be to get out of it. And it's something I personally am also familiar with as in the past I also had depressions and in the thick of it, it's really hard to imagine that there are going to be better days. But somehow I broke through it and it's not easy, but what helps is having a different mind set and be more loving and kind towards yourself. For me personally things turned around when I started my mindfulness practice nearly 12 years ago. There are so many stages to break through, to accept, to embrace and to let go. Super hard stuff to go through, but once you start believing in your best state of mind, the voices that tell you all the these stories that make you feel less than yourself, will eventually loose their power over you. I thank our DT member for sharing her story and for reaching out. This is really important to do, so you know you are not alone and can create a supportive network. And with this I hope to give some comfort and support to those whom are struggling with depression as well. Always believe your best state of mind.

I hope this inspired you to create along with us this month at Craft Stamper and be sure to link up your projects to be in it to win some great prizes and the winner gets a feature on the magazine and blog. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!
