When I noticed that my Project Life album was getting full only after three months, I looked over at all my spreads and took note of why I went overboard. The problem was that I was getting artsy – it was starting to become an art journal and it was taking away from the purpose of the album, which was simply to document moments.
The solution: a hybrid art journal/scrapbook.
I have been training my eye to take better pictures, so I have an excess amount of pictures that don’t necessarily have a place in my Project Life album but deserve to be showcased in a special way on their own. Of course, like PL, I am going to go through this project on the fly. No rules and no limits. I want to include what I don’t necessarily feel comfortable doing in PL – raw emotion: anger, pain, happiness, and love. I also want to use medium that I can’t really include in PL – paint, and fabric not associated with memories.
Excited about this new project!
