Just a reminder before I start this post, you can still get in on the draw for the laptop skins from Friday March 4th's post, just scroll down.
On thursday I started taking an online class at Big Picture Classes, called 'i.scrap' with Stacy Julian. Having never done an online class before I was a little unsure of what to expect. The class is broken down into two week long sessions, after completing the prep phase. You do not need a week to do the work, but it's there to accommodate for fitting in the scrap time. Basically, without giving away too much, the class is an introspective. We are given phrases with which to complete sentences and gather pictures from the last year that represent the phrases, then we move on to scrapping the phrases and photos, but not the sentences yet. I was so pumped I started creating my 9 layouts, 1 for each of the 9 phrases and I just couldn't stop! I got everything done in one afternoon and evening. I can't believe I now have to wait a week for part two. I am assuming part two will be the introspective writing / journaling phase. I am looking forward to this as I have been trying to incorporate more of MY words into my layouts. This class is just the ticket to help me do this!
I am not sure if I will share, this album when I am done. I will not know until I have all of my words down on paper if they will be share worthy or if I want to put my feeling out there. We'll see. In the meantime, I thought I'd share some of it before words are added.
Here is the title page ....
'Looking deeper than the event, the image, the pretty paper, the embellishments ... looking for the feelings behind the moments, realizing I am a lucky girl. I love and I am loved.'
And here is one of the pages....
If you can't see it, the phrase for this photo is 'i was'... can you figure out what that refers to? I shared this layout because it is one that i will likely be able to share the finished product for, like I said, we'll see.
Thanks again for stopping by, I really appreciate that you visit me!
