Today I have progress on my One Little Word album to share.
Remember, I am taking Ali's One Little Word class and will be creating this sort of photo diary throughout the year. My plan so far has been to loosely follow the prompts and fit them into an 8.5x11 album.
Part of how I am using my word in 2013 is to set monthly "bold intentions." I am going back to the January section and adding to the cards exactly what those intentions are so I can remember them. You can see in the photo above that I just wrote them onto the monthly card.
The prompt from the workshop this month was to create a collage. I decided to simply the process and just use found paper pieces and magazine clippings right in my album. I went through a few magazines and cropped interesting pieces down to 2.75x3.75.
Super simple and graphic. The images and text don't exactly relate to my word, but I loved the look of them together.
I included a 5x7 insert between the pages this month with the text from this blog post. I like the idea of getting some "brave" journaling worked into the album when I have it, but I have no plans to do a full write up each month.
What I do plan to continue each month, though, is a collage of iPhone photos. In January these were all photos I took of my daily yoga practice. In February, I took daily photos on my walk. Love the look of them all collected together. I only have space for 18 photos a month so it really isn't a "daily" project, but that actually helps me keep the pressure off when I miss a photo or day. This month, I had some blank spaces, so I added Studio Calico stickers in the pockets. I like the look of them floating there.
And that's it for this month. Loving this album so far.
Supplies used : We R Memory Keepers 8.5x11 album, We R Memory Keepers 9 pocket page, Project Life 5x7 photo pocket page, Studio Calico butterfly and camera stickers, Amy Tangerine LOVE patterned paper.
