Then you scrapbook the photos using a template that Shimelle posts on her blog. I had a great time taking the photos last Friday. It took me a while to get into the groove but once I did, I was able to see my life in a different way. I found myself wanting to pick up the camera all weekend because I was more aware of memorable moments.
The hard part was picking the picture I wanted to use. I had some photos that were significant activities but not really great photos. I found myself considering how the photos would look together instead of the truth about my day and the sequencing of events. This was a great process to work through because I think every artist strugges with maintaining integrity in their work. I took the time to play with the layout and, as Tim Gund says "made it work".
The one thing that really compromised my layout was my darn photo printer. We recently got a computer that has Vista instead of XP and my Olympus P-10 won't print so I had to use the big printer -the colors ended up being washed out and dull.
I just love this challenge and am already looking forward to next month! I was dazzled by the work of my girls. Check it out!:
