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 myMessy 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.
Here are the last three week's creative challenge pages.
Week 4: What Do You Have to Say focused on the stories you want to tell. The challenge was to document a story. I decided to use Arthur's birth story. Very structured page, but it helped to think about what I wanted to say succinctly, but covering everything. These special moments are definitely the type of stories I want to tell!
Week 5: Expressing Your Voice focused on your personal style. I decided to document my favorite design elements for my creative challenge. The color palette is more muted than my usual, but it's nice to branch out every once in awhile.
Finally Week 6: Building On Your Story focused on wrapping up and setting some goals. In fact the creative challenge was to document my storytelling goals. I decided on five major goals with some ways to achieve those goals. Simple page, but I like it!
Overall this workshop has been great at helping me to branch out. I used a ton of supplies that aren't my normal go-tos. I ventured back into traditional scrapbooking to stretch my limit. And I really thought about some my storytelling approach. Thank you Kristin for creating such a great workshop!
