You may recall that the purpose of this challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. You can view all of the challenges our new Inspiration Elevator Blog, "http://inkspiration.typepad.com/inspirationelevator/"
Our challenge this month comes from the very talented Jodi Wilton . Here's what she had to say in her very own words:
"My challenge for January. The New Year is always about bettering
ourselves; looking into the future, and making goals (some attainable,
some not so much). Scrapbooking is about recording the story and most of
these stories are in the past, so we don't forget the memories we
created. For this challenge I would like you to scrapbook yourself, your
family, or a particular family member
and where you (or them) would like to be in ten years time. The focus
for this challenge is on the journaling. Your layout or art journal may
be in the form of a letter to your future self. Your layout may or may
not have any photo at all and be all about the journaling. Dip deep!
Really think about what you can (or they can) accomplish! What are your
dreams? What are your goals? Good luck ladies!"
This was a great challenge. I often thimk about the future but don't get very specific. I visualize a future where I own a home and plant a garden. Where my daughter wants to hang with her parents even if they are super embarrasing. Where my husband has the job he wants and the telescope he's been dreaming about for years now.
|Im so sorry if this photo looks fussy- it's taken with my ipod and I can't figure out how to fix it- it looks clear when I check it out close up. A mystery.|
|An experiment in minimalism and restraint. Perhaps not my best page|
but it's exciting to try a new thing.
