I ran across rukristin's free 6-week workshop Find You Voice. I love her blog and her products, especially the Currently line. I have a ton of things going on this summer, but I had to stick this project in somewhere. If you want to join us, head on over and sign up. For the project, I choose to add these pages into my household binder along with my OLW pages. Once I decided the where, I had to decide how. Looking at all my crazy supplies, I had to narrow it down. I often get overwhelmed in choices. I started with my Messy Boxes from A Beautiful Mess that have been piling up on the counter. I kept saving them for no good reason, but yeah for this project apparently. I added a few stamps, some embellishments, and alphas to complete my stash. Time to dive in.
I started with my title page using a pattern paper page and an overlay. The entire class is based on finding my inner storyteller and I feel like "Life is Beautiful" was the perfect mantra. From there I focused on the pre-workshop questions and built a page around those. It's nice to get back into traditional scrapbooking for a project. I've been focusing so much on Project Life that I had to rethink my approach to these pages.
After the pre-workshop page, I dove straight into Weeks 1-3. Sometimes I based my page off of the questions and sometimes off of the creative challenge. I love that this class is very free in its structure. My basic strategy was to grab a focus piece and just see where the page took me. Overall I am loving where the class is going. Below are my pages for the first half of class.
