Each week will be broken down into three prompts: crafting based, writing based and picture based. You can participate with 1, 2 or all 3 of the prompts or you can decide each week what speaks to you and do that. Remember: there is no right or wrong way to participate, do what inspires you!
Prompt 1 (crafting based): Create a project that represents you at the beginning of your storytelling journey. This is a great time to prep a mini-album; or pull together supplies that you love (or have been scared to use).
For this week's crafting prompt I have pulled out a Smashbook that I have been holding onto since October. I love that there is an eclectic collection of papers in this book, so I can pick a page that already has a pretty design and just add my story or pictures, or I can add my own elements and embellish the page the way I want. I will use this for the majority of the workshop, but I may also create 12x12 layouts that I will add in with my regular albums I already have started.
Prompt 2 (writing based): Gather up some of your favorite writing supplies and re-visit the prompts on the worksheet. Expand upon 2-3 of the questions that you'd like to answer most.
I used Wordle to create a collage based on questions 2 of the worksheet, "Who are you?"
Prompt 3 (picture based): Start taking pictures every day. Set a goal (5 pictures a day) and reall work at capturing the little details that happen throughout each day.
I have really been making an effort this week to take pictures of the little things in my day. My focus this week has been to capture the little things that brighten my day. You can follow my instagram feed (KimL141) and #findyourvoice to see what other participants are taking pictures of this week. Here are a couple of my week so far:
