Back at the beginning of September, I gave you a little peek into my approach to Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday Class. Last year, I made a full-on mini-book:
I had more fun putting this book together and it came at a very pertinent time in my life as I was processing some more intense emotions. This year, I am in a better place about all of that junk in my head - yay! So... I decided to approach my project through the lens of perspective. I worked up a layout full of little vellum pockets and one larger pocket behind the whole thing:
I then read each class prompt daily, followed by my entry from last year for that day... and then came up with a short phrase or sentence based on that perspective. Each day, I jotted that down in the corresponding pocket:
I then used the larger pocket that is stitched onto the back of the entire page to write an explanation for the project, explaining my approach...
And when all was said and done....
I had this!
Oh, how I so enjoyed this approach! I think the best part was really seeing how far one can come in just one year... always a good reminder!
