I take a photo every day. Usually more, but always one. I did project 365 back in 2008 and made a shutterfly album with the results and I was so happy that I did. Last year I lost steam mid-year (in my defense I also had camera problems) but this year I decided to try it again. I’m keeping up with it – I’m even doing layouts this year but more on that another day. My good pal Emily is posting about photography this week at Write.Click.Scrapbook so I offered to help her out. Now I don’t think I’m that great a photographer but Emily had a specific assignment for me and I knew she wouldn’t give me something that I couldn’t handle. I had to do a photographic interview – it was fun and not too painless given that I was already taking photos every day. I decided to incorporate my answers into a mini-album mostly because I have a bind-it-all and I love to make those little books, especially when I have all the content mapped out for me. The questions were:
- What is the first thing you see in the morning?
- The biggest thing to happen to you recently/soon?
- Your best mirror shot
- The person that you see the most in a week
- Your favourite shoes
- Your favourite meal
- The colour of your eyes
- Your favourite place to be on a Friday night
This is what I made:
|Supplies: Bella Blvd patterned papers, Core’dinations cardstock, Little Yellow Bicycle sticker buttons,
Making Memories alpha, Jillibean Soup canvas flowers, Bind It All half inch silver wire
I used Cathy Zielske’s new Journal Card Brushes and Stamps on the interior photo pages. It added a little embellishment to the photo. I found some of the text was getting lost so I added a layer underneath to look like vellum (lowering the opacity of a thin white strip layer).
