Yes how could I resist another Shimelle class. So like many of you I am learning to Explore - details here. Still not sure where this is going, but one of the first tasks was to take a self portrait! Not as easy as it looks but after a few attempts I got one I was happy with. Now after reading many of your blogs and on the class forum, it seems that scrapbookers seem to prefer to be behind the camera and not in front. Perhaps that's why we all became scrapbookers! When I started blogging back in April, I realised I very rarely appeared in any of my scrapbook stories so I am trying not to be so camera shy.
Shimelle also encouraged us to make a "play book" which we will use to throughout the class to respond to the prompts. Here's mine;
Can't believe that I actually made this on the first day of the class - perhaps there is hope I will stick to this. I have also journalled in response to the prompt but as it is quite private, I'd prefer not to share. However I will share the mess I managed to create whilst making the book - quite impressive considering the book is only 8x6! You will have to excuse the poor light - my desk is right in our front window and due to the mess I kept the blind firmly shut!
