The first of September brought with it the start of the 30 Days of Me class that's hosted by Maggie Holmes over at Studio Calico. I was hesitant to take on a daily project, especially one that focuses on myself. In the end I decided to give it a whirl and figured it will give me the chance to try out some new creative techniques. And who knows, maybe this will be something that I return to every so often, though I would switch it to being done in my birthday month. :)
I assembled my kit early on, but didn't prepare my base pages like I have in the past with other daily albums. Since I didn't know what to expect, I went in with a clean slate. I'm not going to be able to keep up with it daily, but hopefully at least every few days I'll catch up.
I made a very simple cover page and then after the fact realized I wanted something to show the date. I was going to put the label on the page, but it felt out of place. I grabbed a shipping label and adhered it to that and really like the result. I knew I'd have items outside of page protectors, so this worked perfectly.
I began to second guess using the WRMK Instagram album because it really is teeny. I wound up doing a 2-page spread for day one's prompt due to the lack of space. I've since gotten a better feel for how to work with such small areas and am liking the results.
Some out of pocket action for day 2 along with an ode to my phone.
For day 3, I wrote about my day in the style of a diary entry and tucked it away in a vellum envelope that I made. Getting more creative with doodling and my handwriting is something that I'm pushing myself with in this album. We'll see what else I feel inspired to try as the month goes on! :)
