Brain brushing exercise cheat sheet card

I read about a cool little exercise called "brain brushing" recently and made this cheat sheet card to remind me of the steps in the exercise. At first I was going to just write the steps on an index card; but then I figured I might as well make a pretty card so I chose a beautiful piece of handmade paper with this gorgeous leaf and stem design embossed into it.


I found this piece of paper in my stash. It just happened to have five stem designs – perfect for writing out the five steps. To make the title stand out, I wrote that on a separate piece of handmade paper that I tore around the edges. I inked the edges of the leaf paper with Walnut Stain Tim Holtz Distress Ink and added three pearls as accents. I framed the whole thing with a dark brown piece of Club Scrap paper (one of my gajillion POPs).

The exercise is from Daniel Siegel, UCLA psychiatry professor and author of Mindsight: The New Science of Transformation. If you'd like to learn about the exercise, visit my beauty and health blog hello beauty! where I just published a post about it.

I didn't realize you had an artsy blog, too! I'll put this in my reader, so I can follow your new posts.

Yeah, Rinda, I set this up awhile ago but neglected it last year when I was mainly focused on beauty writing. But this year I gave it a facelift and am trying to be better about posting. Thanks for following! xoxo
