And then it came to me, instead of trying to fit myself into the project, why not tweak the project to fit me?
That was all I needed. The fire was lit. The game was on. (oops...mixed metaphors? oh well, you get the gist!)
I decided that my approach would be to create each week's theme/challenge on a 4x6 card, which I'll eventually join together with these hoop thingys (please forgive the technical jargon), which will lastly be embellished with fibers and embellishments. But I am getting ahead of myself here.
At this point, I'm creating the 4x6 cards with the theme on 1 side, and then I'm just journaling and documenting the week on the reverse side. Should I ever need more space, no problem. There are plenty of tricks to make that happen!
So I need to just catch up. I'm not that far behind. The theme for week 3 was just announced, and I was able to create week 1 + 2 over the past weekend.
So week 1 you were supposed to create your front door. I was never sure if you were to try to replicate your real life front door, or just create a front door for your journal. I exercised (which is good, I need to exercise!) artistic license and just created a front door. Here it is, closed, and then open:
Week two's theme is to work with a selfie. As if! Here's my zettified (a term used in reference to an art form promoted by Teesha Moore) self(ie).
And there you go: My Documented Life so far this year!!
