I've blogged about my plans for this project before. I work on for myself that, I call it, project 'my' life. Read more about it, here. So toss the size and half my original plans for 2015 out the window and you get this blog post, haha.
I decided to change to the 9 x 12 size when my album that I just had to have from A Beautiful Mess arrived, because hello, black and white. I've also decided to go with monthly spreads, adding in scrapbook pages if I happen to do one, something I want to try and get into doing again, I have the itch. So setting myself a challenge for once a month, and obviously that hadn't started in February. But for now I kept February to a one page spread. Where as March and April are looking to be two. OH and side note : if think I missed January? I haven't. My project 'my' life cover here, is all January photos and when I went back to do January those were the main photos, so I thought, bugger it and have popped it into my 9x12 into a pocket as is.
MATERIALS USED : Messy Box cross 3 x 4 card from A Beautiful Mess. Awesome acrylic [photographed] from Color Cast Designs. Digital, goals, loving and watching from Little Lamm & Co. Becky Higgins, design I pocket page. New stamp sets, coming in May and June to Kellie Stamps. Coffee wood mount stamp, from Kellie Stamps [SOLD OUT].
I used the Becky Higgins design I pocket and because the album had different rings, I've gone and punched my own holes to make it fit.
I loved using the digital brush script from Little Lamm & Co. I've used Currently and Simplify. In March I've added more reading, etc. But for February I only required the the 3. I set goals every month on my blog, here, and now I have a way to document them, for myself.
THOUGHTS : Something I didn't do that I did a fair amount of in my 2014 project 'my' life, was to journal directly onto the photographs. I'm not saying I wont do this for 2015 and if I find that there is a need for journaling I will. Often when I feel I 'have' to do journaling, I just waffle on for the sake of doing so. I'm seeing a few flip pockets and hidden jounrnaling.
